As we experience intense pressures for increased organizational performance we are
confronted with the challenge to maximize human engagement within our organizations, that
is, to optimize the potential for innovation, creativity, and commitment of the people in them.

Fundamental to this challenge are the interactive processes between people from diverse
backgrounds and the organizational capacity to value and leverage this diversity as a
performance asset.  As its name implies, micro-inequities can surreptitiously undercut the
human performance edge of the organization seeking to thrive in today’s fiercely competitive

The goal of this workshop is not to change hearts and minds, judge people’s thoughts and
ideas, or promote political correctness.  The goal is to raise awareness and introduce practical
techniques for increasing workplace productivity and performance.  

Facilitation methods include lecture, individual/team exercises, role play, video analysis, and
group discussion.
