Today's team leaders feel constant pressure to innovate and position their products, services, teams, and themselves more creatively than ever before. In our highly diverse workplaces, cultural and diversity intelligence is critical to achieving these goals. Diversity extends beyond race, ethnicity, religion, culture, or newcomer status, to include factors such as geography, language, politics, gender, beliefs, economic status, abilities, skills, and interests. By aligning diversity intelligence with leadership values, strategies, and communication practices to ensure a truly collaborative, inclusive, and engaging work culture environment, we can inspire high performance teams to manage the change that is inevitable with innovation in the 21st century.

This webinar helps leaders use diversity intelligence to manage team relationships and move their team engagement levels to drive performance. People from different backgrounds, cultures, countries, sexes, and ages have different approaches to communication, motivation, and idea creation—by expanding your awareness of diversity, you can create as much opportunity for people to feel empowered and watch innovation thrive as much as your team.

This webinar will enable participants to understand how diversity intelligence can be used to create a culture where people and performance thrive, driving innovation. More specifically, it will enable participants to use enhanced diversity awareness for:

  • Supporting recruitment challenges and skills shortages;
  • Improving employee satisfaction and retention;
  • Providing better client service;
  • Broadening community engagement;
  • Fostering innovation and problem-solving skills; and
  • Promoting organizational values more fully.

Webinar Outline

The webinar is a combination of subject matter presentation, video examples, and group engagement. This interactive presentation is divided into 4 sections:

  • Introducing and examining the concept of diversity and how it drives organizational success and innovation.
  • Discussing the complexity of a diverse team environment in relation to creativity, commitment, and enthusiasm.
  • Outlining diversity intelligent leadership strategies for inspiring teams to attain high performance and high fulfillment.
  • Outlining the impacts of diversity on team engagement (includes discussing the inter-relationship between culture, values, teamwork, and performance).
  • Question and Answer section.
