The uniqueness of each individual is what brings strength to a team. Individual differences in the workplace must be sought after, nurtured and respected. Successful organizations understand this and use it to their competitive advantage. In this module we discuss how to coach workers not only to respect their colleagues and traits each individual possesses, but also to seek out those co-workers as team members. Participants will discover the foundation for understanding diversity and developing skills for working in environments and groups composed of diverse individuals. The leader will cover a wide range of topics including issues of race, gender, ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, and physical ability in the workplace.
