Diversity training can be more than just ticking a required training box approach. The courses that are part of our Intercultural Competence and Confidence program, not only build intercultural competency for individuals, they also provide the confidence for people to set and achieve diversity goals outside the training classroom.
Minneapolis/St. Paul and the surrounding Twin Cities area is rich in its diversity of ethnic groups, religions, sexual identities, and age/experience. Blending all these facets together can create an exciting dynamic workplace with respectful approaches to conflict resolution.
Having cultural competency and tapping into your team’s diversity can lead to:
A decrease of:
- Combative behavior rooted in disrespect
- Being unwilling or unable to accept change
- Closed-mindedness on new ideas or view points
An increase in:
- inclusive, clear communication
- positive, non-argumentative, conflict
- an openness and acceptance of other points of view
- respectful behavior
- supporting team members
Many of our courses are built on the Intercultural Diversity Index® or IDI ® theory and inventory. This theory provides a springboard for your team to learn tools for respect along with increasing their communication toolset and providing a team-building experience.
