Leading Diverse Teams
In today’s diverse workplaces, employees bring with them different backgrounds and experiences and their own unique needs and concerns. Leading such teams therefore presents numerous challenges to ensure that all team members can work to the best of their abilities and feel secure from the possibility of bias, bullying, harassment or discrimination.
Description of modules
Leaders at the management level therefore have a dual responsibility: promoting diversity and inclusion within the team while minimizing any threats against these. This requires a comprehensive understanding of the benefits of D&I practices, both for the individual and for the company, and an ability to objectively assess how our inherent biases affect how we perceive and react to others.
This course enables managers to develop this awareness and create strategies to apply it to the workplace. In using these strategies, managers will improve the working environment for team members, thereby increasing worker satisfaction and security and the quality and quantity of work completed within the team.
This course can be offered as a standalone course, as in-company training, or as a module in BAMIK’s International Leadership Development Program. All participants who complete this course, regardless of format, will receive a certificate of completion. Should participants then decide to complete that level of the ILDP, this certificate will function as proof of prior completion of this module.
