NEW for 2012
Target Audience: All
Course Description: This presentation provides participants with an unique look into human behavior from the perspective of science and psychology in order to better understand human differences and their link to enhancing inclusion and innovation. The workshop provides an updated view on "difference and inclusion" and shows listeners a “human behavior” framework for understanding how exclusion and intolerance occur with respect to both people and ideas, even with individuals and in organizations that are committed to diversity and inclusion. The session will look at how close-mindedness takes place and give suggestions people can take to be more open-minded and to “entertain” new ideas—a much needed view in a world filled with human differences and increasingly driven by creativity and innovation. The goal is to assist people in becoming more flexible, adaptable and agile – necessary attributes for future success.
