Workshop Title: Cultural Diversity and Inclusion

 

Cultural Diversity and Inclusion is a course for supervisors and managers in establishing a professional work environment and preventing harassment and discrimination in their work units. Harassment and discrimination complaints cost the average large corporation millions of dollars a year in settlements, judgments, absenteeism, and unproductive work time. More costly still is the chilling effect of harassment and discrimination on employees who witness or hear of these injustices. Productivity and company loyalty are reduced, and a climate that does not try to root out these issues makes it difficult for employees to either remain with the company or to stay productive in their jobs.

 

This workshop examines phenomena and processes in general and with regard to specific dimensions such as gender, race and ability. It is designed to increase knowledge of diversity in organizations, understanding others' perspectives, and ability to work well with people who differ from themselves.

Workshop Title: Leading and Managing Change

 

Leading and Managing Change is uncomfortable for many people and yet it is something we all live with permanently. The only thing constant in our lives is ‘change’. We would struggle without change.  Predicted change is taken in our stride, interuptive change is resisted. Yet it is interuptive change that often creates the step needed to realign to our strategic position - both as an individual and as an organization. Yet most organizations fail in terms of new initiatives, capital investments, re-alignment, M&A activity or divestitures’. Why? Not because the organization does not have competent manager but because they do not have competent ‘change’ leaders and managers who can not only lead change but also sustain it for some time until the organizational objectives have been addressed.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

1.    Identify, create and sell the value proposition for change.

2.    Evaluate and diagnose the organizational readiness for change.

3.    Create a communication and marketing strategy.
