Diversity-Smart Managers

Managers that Capitalize the Diversity of Thinking 

Diversity-Smart Managers Trainings

In a world of disruptive digital business models, augmented workforces, flattened organizations, and an ongoing shift to team-based work practices, organizations are challenging their leaders to step up and show the way forward.

Behavioural Skills Company's Diversity-Smart Managers training programs give managers and team leads the knowledge and skills, the strategies and tools to step up the game of leading diverse teams. 

Leading High-Performance Diversity-Smart Teams

Managing High-Performance Diversity-Smart Teams is the Behavioural Skills Company’scutting-edge program about capitalizing diversity of thinking in teams as a critical success factor. It gives managers and team leads the knowledge and skills to lead diverse teams. Participants explore the cultural, cognitive, and functional differences between individual members of a team as varying orientations to time, communication, work, relationships, and groups. They learn to process such individual differences to multiply the creative and innovative potential and overall productivity of teams. The program addresses the gaps that traditional team-building workshops miss out on and gives managers the strategies and tools to progress the performance of their teams to the next level.                 

Leveraging Diversity of Thinking to Critical Decision-Making

Leveraging Diversity of Thinking to Critical Decision-Making invites managers and team leads to explore the challenges of increasingly diverse workforces, flattened organizations, and team-based work practices bring to the task of critical decision-making. Research shows that diverse teams have far superior critical thinking and decision-making potential than homogenous teams. Diversity, however, may be a crippling hurdle when managers and teams are not equipped with the behavioural skills to leverage it. This workshop combines proven group decision-making techniques with the latest research on group dynamics in diverse teams to use the diversity of thinking as a unifying catalyst to spur creativity and quality solutions.           

Diversity-Smart Conflict Management

Diversity-Smart Conflict Management is a pioneering Behavioural Skills Company workshop thatconfronts managers and team leads to the increased potential of conflicts in diverse teams. They would see how​ culturally and cognitively determined expectations of appropriate behaviour lead to the formation of silos and inter-silo conflicts that dramatically affect communication and diminish the overall productivity. The program then equips managers with the knowledge and skills to use the differences of individual backgrounds to enhance collaboration and the creative potential of their teams rather than to divide them.
