Creating an inclusive environment in the workplace can be a challenge. Employees sometimes clash and don’t work together as well as they should, even when they come from the same background. Add differences to the mix and this friction can get even worse, damaging teamwork and hurting the productivity of the group as a whole.
Fortunately, there are specific skills that can help us smooth workplace interactions and resolve issues that might come up, whether they involve ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, disabilities or anything else that makes people feel different.
Employees learn how to:
-Make small gestures of support and acceptance
-Meet in the middle
-Look for opportunities to connect
Managers will learn techniques for:
-Setting the tone
-Preventing discriminatory behavior
-Accepting each individual
-Being a mentor
This practical guide to establishing an inclusive workplace will help you head off problems, build morale and productivity, and maximize the success of your workgroup by maximizing the success of each individual.
