Course description

Emotional Intelligence: Focus on Diversity & Inclusion

For at least the last two decades, organizations across America have implemented programs and strategies designed to create an environment where employees recognize and value one another's unique differences and are therefore better able to work with each other as well as serve the diverse communities where our clients live. Our ability to provide positive connections and to remain inoffensive is often dependent on appreciating and respecting these differences. Unfortunately, sometimes our differences are subtle and our reactions to those differences are both unconscious and biased, interfering with even the best-intentioned leadership. The result is the creation of an environment where certain individuals or groups can be treated as unwelcome, invisible, or incapable of performing well.

The good news is that there are tools and competencies that can enable us to mitigate and even eliminate bias. In this program we will explore how developing our emotional intelligence can enable us to value and respect the differences that represent the strengths, experiences, and unique skills of each and every individual. We will learn how to value difference and build relationships that create and sustain a truly inclusive workplace in which every member of the team contributes to the best of his or her ability and receives equitable opportunity and support.

In this session, participants will learn the skill of people agility, or how to approach people with an attitude of openness, curiosity, appreciation and respect. They will also learn proactive tools for building diverse networks, improving cross cultural communication, adapting to cultural value systems when necessary, and leveraging diversity through action learning.
