Dimensions of Diversity
Tuition Price: $8,000
Course Length:  1 day

What makes us different from one another can either help us connect or can tear us apart. Effective diversity training does not seek to replace individual belief systems; rather it helps people develop an understanding of one’s self and one another that leads to increased respect, cooperation, and productivity.

The framework is set to bring people together who might otherwise be separated by cultural barriers or belief systems. Let’s shatter those old views and put into practice a new level of respect, caring and civility for an amazing workplace culture.

Unsure how to accomplish this? We’ll guide you through activities designed to identify biases in a non-threatening environment and help you implement strategies to support internal and external customer service while enhancing interpersonal workplace relationships.

Workplace utopia doesn’t exist, but we can almost guarantee you’ll see positive changes in your professional atmosphere which can’t help but transfer over into all aspects of your daily lives.

Generational Differences @ Work
Tuition Price: $8,000
Course Length:  1 day

Recent data from the Department of Labor indicates there are now an unprecedented five generations in the workplace today! Between the Silent Generation, Boomers (two groups --early and late stage), Generation X and Generation Y groups sometimes it may feel as though no one speaks the same language.

How can you capitalize on the strengths and perspectives of each group to form a cohesive, inclusive team? We’ll explore promising practices that can help you make the most of the unique attributes of each generation and preserve the assets each brings to the workforce.

Understanding generational difference in the workplace is important because every generation wants to feel included. The feeling of inclusion and camaraderie can be diminished when personalities don't seem to mesh because of different life perspectives. Join us in this journey of bringing all the “gens” together for a more harmonious work environment!
