Overcoming Conflict in a Diverse Workplace
Time & Location
About the Event
This course creates participant awareness, and the ability to understand conflict and how to build successful outcomes.
There are many benefits to diversity in the workplace, including creativity among teams and a more expansive set of solutions to problems.
However, cross-cultural misunderstandings may arise when there are differences. One negative effect of cultural diversity in the workplace is the increased tendency of personnel to create interpersonal conflicts. A diverse workplace will contain different opinions, thoughts, beliefs, norms, customs, values and traditions.
Companies that encourage diversity in the workplace, and support education about diversity and inclusion, inspire all of their employees to perform to their highest ability.Learner Outcomes
