Schulung: Living Diversity - Diversity Training for Employees
Every day you have to work with different people in the context of a global economy. This often leads to friction and conflicts and requires that you successfully make use of a wide behavioural repertoire. Often you do not know how to interpret the behaviour of others and how you should behave in order to create a good working atmosphere with fewer conflicts.
This seminar supports you in finding solutions to these problems. It aims at sys-tematically preparing you to deal with the diversity and differences in teams. By means of a systematic presentation of basic knowledge and insights into diversity management, you critically examine your own expectations and unconscious patterns of thought/stereotypes with regard to different diversity dimensions, such as age, gender, different nationalities and, in doing so, are able to review your own judgments and prejudices.
You analyse unconscious patterns of thought with regard to their helpfulness or whether or not they should be discarded or changed. You sharpen your eye for the different strengths of team members and determine how successful you are at dealing with the different abilities of people and using those differences to promote cooperation in the team. From these insights and this reflection you develop suitable behavioural patterns and helpful strategies to deal constructively with very different people.
You reflect and develop specific strategies for and practical solutions to help you in your own everyday situations and conflicts.
