Bambi Vs Godzilla: Dealing With Different, Diverse and Sometimes Difficult Behaviors
We all know that diversity can be a tremendous source of collective creativity and insight, but research also shows that our diversity has the potential to disrupt group functioning if teams do not learn how to leverage their differences. These two divergent realities pose a paradox that has held the attention of researchers and organizational leaders for many years. Indeed, every organization has its share of people, who because of different interpersonal styles can be challenging for others to work with. They may be customers, they may be co-workers - but in either case, working with them in a way that leads to success is a critical skill.
In this session, we will answer the question: how can we leverage diversity in ways that lead to positive outcomes and more effective group performance? Participants will discover that most people are more different than they are difficult. They will learn how to value difference and build relationships with people who are different. Participants will explore six difficult styles and understand both the "why" of these styles, and the “how” of increasing one’s ability to create a positive dynamic.
