In this workshop we will focus on 5 steps to building an engaged, diverse and inclusive workplace:
When people can readily identify their strengths, and the value they bring to their organization, and likewise recognize their weaknesses, they can truly ‘bring their whole self to work”.
Our unique view is formed by our own individual perceptions and beliefs. If you can understand where these perceptions and beliefs come from, you can then begin to understand why other people see things differently. This is where we can begin to appreciate others and improve our relationships with them.
3. Adapting and Connecting
Adaption will be different for each situation and person, ranging from varying communication styles and problem solving strategies. As long as adaptation does not conflict with an individual's values or beliefs, it will help to facilitate growth, team bonding, and add substantial value to the organization.
When differences are celebrated, people feel more comfortable being themselves and bringing forth ideas that may be new or different. Realizing they are valued for their contribution provides a great opportunity for increased performance; the effort and energy that is often channeled into trying to fit in can be focused on actions and activities where they shine the most.
5. Leveraging Diversity
Organizations that have a diverse workforce and inclusive culture are known to attract and retain talent, and are more innovative.
