We live in a constantly evolving social environment that pushes limits, boundaries, and undeniably exposes our pre-set thoughts, assumptions, and emotions. Our social environment consists of many places, our workplace being one of them – it’s full of colleagues, coworkers, and counterparts who all come from different backgrounds and experiences. It’s no secret that collaboration can go sideways for a number of reasons. What if we could avoid certain types of workplace discord by simply taking the time to think, identify, and react differently? Research shows that trust is highest amongst teams that value differences and foster open communication. This helps create cultures of respect and inclusion that support expanding diversity and embracing differences instead of falling into the ‘cancel culture’ mentality.
This introductory training will cover and discuss the skills and mindset needed to achieve change in the workplace, and our communities when it comes to unconscious bias and microaggressions.
