Diversity: Overcoming Differences

How can we overcome our differences?

Think about your answers to the following questions. (This is another great exercise to do with a group of managers).
  • How can you help people feel more valued?
  • How can you help people feel more empowered?
  • How can you ensure that individual perspectives are better recognized?
  • How can you more effectively consider your department's individual and group differences?
What trends do you see in the answers to the above questions?  What actions are needed to implement these recommendations?  What do you see as barriers to "valuing differences" in the workplace?  What are some ways to overcome those barriers?  Taking action and overcoming barriers to differences will help ensure that we can leverage the advantages of diversity.

Until next time...
