Leveraging the Power of Diverse Teams

  • Tuesday, November 14, 2017, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Led by Margo Hittleman, Co-founder and Coordinator, Natural Leaders Initiative (Bio).

Often, people put together diverse teams, but then work in ways that fail to reap the benefits of that diversity. This highly interactive workshop offers both a framework and practical tools for leveraging the power of diverse teams, optimizing innovation, and strengthening organizational decision-making. It invites participants to become intentional and strategic about this work. It is designed both for those who lead diverse teams and those who want to build their capacity to do so in the future. The content is applicable both in organizational and community contexts.

In this highly interactive workshop, you will:

  • Explore the power of diversity for creativity and innovation
  • Gain tools to promote an inclusive group process that invites the sharing of diverse and divergent perspectives, experiences and ideas
  • Cultivate the art of “asking” vs. “telling”
  • Learn to invite innovation-generating, constructive “task or content conflict” while reducing the innovation-destroying traps of “relationship conflict,” false harmony, polarization, and the pull toward conformity
  • Shift your focus from “good intentions” to “intended results”

Fee: $70 (community-based non-profit organizations) or $90 (large non-profits and for-profit businesses). Fee includes handouts, healthy snacks and beverages. A limited number of partial scholarships are available for those who could not otherwise attend.
