This training is concerned with the notion of diversity and its connection with Team Management and Team Coaching. Diversity is a relatively new term that has come into common usage only in the past 15 years.
Organizations face several challenges concerning diversity. One is to instruct their team leaders to operate and behave according to inclusiveness ethics and to value diversity within their team.
This course will provide Team Managers with theoretical and practical tools to manage diversity.
From a theoretical point of view, we will introduce the notion of diversity and inclusion. We will explore the classical biases related to diversity and critically evaluate how training can overcome these limitations. From a practical point of view, we will rely on action methods to equip managers with useful exercises to manage and increase the value of diversity.
Team leaders who need a theoretical and practical method to manage diversity and inclusion in their teams.
