Coaching Online Masterclass – Leveraging Diversity for Innovation and Performance

Description

Culture is the way in which a group of people solves problems and reconciles dilemmas. Fons will show, using the Trompenaars Hampden-Turner 7 Dimensions of Culture, that every culture distinguishes itself from others by the specific solutions it chooses to certain problems, which reveal themselves as dilemmas.

When the โ€˜hard sideโ€™ of business and strategy clashes with culture, culture always wins. Culture is an enabler for successful relations, but also a minefield for potential conflicts.

In order to leverage the strength of diversity, one should move beyond nationality, gender and ethnicity by incorporating the multiple layers of values that form perceptions and guide behaviours. Diversity can only lead to higher performance if it goes beyond social justice and equal treatment; it is an essential ingredient and pre-condition for growth and innovation.

Aims:

โ€ข To increase participantsโ€™ awareness of their own (and their coacheesโ€™) approaches to diversity and the underlying assumptions that influence oneโ€™s ability to deal with situations more effectively.

โ€ข To develop the mindset of inclusion and the manifestations thereof with employees, colleagues and other stakeholders.

โ€ข To better equip participants and their coachees to manage and benefit from cultural diversity in their day-to-day work.

Who Should Attend?

Everybody is welcome but the session will be particularly relevant to those in the coaching space.
