A 1 or 2 Day Hands-On Workshop

For Government Employees

In this workshop, participants learn how to approach and appreciate diversity in the modern government workplace. This workshop serves as a hands-on experience for leaders and employees to develop the skills and techniques needed to successfully communicate and build effective teams in today’s diverse work environment. This workshop goes well beyond explaining what diversity is and approaching study-back theories from a philosophical view. Today’s government employees need to understand how to identify and correct individual and organizational behaviors that create favoritism, bias, and discriminatory thinking, and be able to replace those behaviors with increased awareness, critical thinking, and effective communication that fosters appreciation and team growth. This workshop provides tools and techniques to accomplish these goals and teaches leaders how to capitalize on the power a diverse work environment can provide.
