Workshop 4:

INNOVATING IN MULTI-CULTURAL TEAMS


Exploiting the creative potential of diversity

1-day inspirational workshop for 10 - 50 delegates


Unleashing the Innovative Power of Diversity

Work today is complex, ambiguous and interdependent. Diversity can enrich understanding and problem solving by bringing together different viewpoints, but it can also confuse, frustrate and cause people and organisations to waste time, loose money and miss opportunities.

Challenges of culturally diverse teams:
     o  Stress from misunderstandings
     o  Conflict & internal strife
     o  Reduced productivity
     o  Demoralised staff
     o  Wasted time

Solution:
This workshop shows people how to appreciate and integrate different viewpoints, thereby better manage misunderstandings and conflict, and turn the above challenges into opportunities for innovation, by releasing the creative powers of a diverse team constructively.

Objectives:
For participants to learn practical skills in:
     o  Appreciating / understanding different world views, values & beliefs
     o  Managing interpersonal stress & misunderstandings
     o  Working together cohesively & productively, and resolving simple conflicts
     o  Using strategies for successful co-operation, partnership & teamwork across cultures
     o  Exploring five key cultural dimensions that influence expectations and impact team behaviour

Approach:
The workshop is highly interactive and participatory, and uses accelerated learning. Participants should come in comfortable clothes and trainers, ideal for moving around, and bring lots of bottled water.

Who should Attend:
This workshop is suitable for people having to work in teams, or for those working with others who have radically different viewpoints. It is especially useful for diverse teams with tensions or lack of cohesiveness.

Benefits:
     o  Enhanced Innovation through "productive diversity"
     o  Improved communication and team leading skills
     o  Effective problem-solving, conflict avoidance / resolution skills
     o  Improved interdisciplinary or cross-functional teamwork
     o  Reduced stress / increased motivation and fun
     o  Unleashing of the potential inherent multi-cultural teams
The workshop is results-oriented and very practical. It is delivered with a high degree of audience interaction and participation. The workshop may include short simulations to enable participants to experience some of the difficulties from within, and then collectively develop solutions themselves.
