(Embracing and Celebrating Diversity / Multiculturalism Inside the Workplace)

He encourages and explains to your group the importance of creating a workplace that is aware of and respects the broad spectrum of human diversity, which is imperative for optimal results. For even the most committed organizations, it is important to lay the groundwork for a successful process by examining areas of need and developing a clear definition of diversity that the organization can embrace as an achievable goal. Special emphasis is placed on linking diversity to your organization’s strategic business objectives, its marketplace, and long-term sustained culture change. Participants will walk away with an increase understanding of diversity, and begin the process for dialogue, working together productively, and ultimately celebrating a diverse workplace that is welcoming, harmonious, fair and progressive.

2) Untie the Knots® of Workplace Sensitivity and Inclusion
(Improving Cultural Sensitivity and Acceptance in the Workplace)
It is important in today's culturally diverse world that we learn how to appropriately interact and respect those around us. Because our beliefs and expectations affect our interactions and conversations with coworkers and clients, it is important to bring them into conscious awareness and take steps to alleviate any negative behavior and influence.
Untie the Knots® of Workplace Sensitivity and Inclusion is designed to enable executives, managers, supervisors and employees on all levels to embrace diversity in the workplace through understanding and respecting others' differences, as well as increase awareness of their tolerance, sensitivity, and inclusion. Ty Howard - in a safe, skillful and sensible way - uses open and candid discussion to explorer and assess our behavior, personal biases, assumptions, and stereotypes. Upon completion of this dynamic and engaging session, participants will be better equipped to identify and address sensitive situations and conversations, remove gender and generational barriers, unify and manage diverse teams, as well as reduce the potential of discrimination related issues and liabilities within your organization.
Regardless of the format you choose, this training session is divided into three parts, Awareness, Analysis and Action. Also, since sensitivity needs and laws vary from area to area and organization to organization, this session will be tailored (customized) to meet your specific organizational needs.
