Leveraging Team Diversity

Good relationships strengthen your team! All teams are made up of a diverse range of personalities/characteristic traits. If a team does not know how to leverage this diversity, tension and conflict can weaken or diminish relationships, reveal cracks within a team and threaten team performance. This workshop will:

  • Provide a shared understanding around what each member brings to the team in relation to each other
  • Deepen collective team awareness of strengths and weaknesses among the membership
  • Create a common language for members to openly discuss differences in order to minimize potential tension and conflict

At the end of the workshop you will be able to:

  • Understand how your personality preference(s) may show up at work in relation to others on your team
  • Strategize on how to work with different personality preferences within your workplace maximizing members’ strengths to achieve higher performance collectively
  • Consider how to leverage diversity within a team in improvement work
