Think about all the people in your life – your peers, boss, and team, your suppliers, business partners and customers. Are they all the same kind of people?
The answer might have been yes 30 years ago. But in today’s business world all of us are now working with diversity.
Some people think that’s a bad thing, because badly managed diversity can cause a great deal of unhappiness and cost a lot of money. We believe diversity is an opportunity, however. If you communicate effectively, diversity can bring people together to perform better. In fact, knowing a little more about diversity and doing things slightly differently can make a tremendous difference to your team.
Our diversity training courses give you a lot of information and ideas on how to navigate the complex diversity maze with increasing confidence and success. We will teach you how to bridge communication gaps between diverse groups. We will concentrate on practical advice and on improving communication among all employees, with one objective in mind: building success in your business.
At the end of the course, you will:
- Know how to analyse your own values and assumptions as well as those of others
- Understand better how diversity can contribute to business success
- Feel more comfortable and effective dealing with diversity issues in your team or among your business partners
- Leave with specific ideas about how to leverage the diversity in your business environment
The content of these tailored courses is negotiated with the client, and fine-tuned with the participants. But on a typical workshop you could expect to:
- Discover research findings that demonstrate the competitive advantages that come from diversity.
- Practise communicating effectively around difficult diversity issues
- Use Canning’s ‘personal preferences’ tool to achieve a more in-depth understanding of your own and others’ diversity
- Brainstorm ways to improve the diversity climate in your team and company
- Consider a personal action plan for improving your diversity communication skills
- Master Canning’s ‘Ten golden rules’ of successful diversity management
Our training is active and tailored to individual needs. You will normally be in a group of not more than eight people, and you will take part in simulations, discussions, and practical exercises throughout the programme. You can expect to discuss your own concerns, and to share ideas with your colleagues. Courses normally last between one and two days. Your trainer will be experienced at training and dealing with diversity on an international level.
