Human Resource professionals can expect to learn ways to overcome their struggle to find success and build a workplace environment where workers get along, cooperate, and can be inclusive of one another. When individuals feel connected and respected at work, they will engage more fully as part of the team.

Employees will be more likely to collaborate, contribute their innovative ideas, and share their unique point of views which will result in significant increases in solution-power. Therefore, HR plays an important role in setting the tone for performance, progress and profits.

Learning objectives:

  • Assess and gauge your own level of embracing diversity
  • Identify and overcome your unconscious biases and fears (We all have them)
  • Enhance your ability to interact effectively with others so they feel seen, heard, respected and included
  • Move from tolerating differences in others to deeply appreciating them
  • Discover proven ways to connect, cooperate, and communicate for more meaningful and fulfilling connections with people at work and in life.
