Building Potential Within a Diverse Team




This course offers you a discussion about diversity in the workplace.  Within your team, various people, all with human qualities, have different ways of viewing the world.  It takes all these other parts of your workforce to make up a cohesive team.  Finding the potential within a diverse workplace helps create an environment that appreciates each part of the team’s distinctions and finds a way to enhance individual skills instead of focusing on people’s differences.  In this course, you will identify the role of fear in the diversity relationship, understand value differences, and identify elements that help create a cohesive workplace.
