  3. 3. Copyright CH Trust. Standing at a Crossroads. Businesses and organizations that are under pressure totransform their teams, are often challenged by the wealth of “solutions” offered, by companies. Some are great - and many are doomed to failure. If you are about to choose a diversity programme,your team is at a crossroads of danger and opportunity. The danger lies in choosing the wrong interventions. This can bring divisions and discontent. The right choice will bring huge opportunities to build individuals, teams and the company, whilst reaping great rewards, together.
  4. 4. Copyright CH Trust.Diversity Interventions Required “Diversified environment, where all employees are valued, and feel the same about their workplace.” “Put people together in a way that will have them bouncing ideas off each other, befriending each other, and taking care of each other, and suddenly they are coming to you, not with gripes and problems, but with solutions and great ideas.” Richard Branson, in his book, “Business Stripped Bare.”
  5. 5. Copyright CH Trust. challenges to building diversityunderstanding and opportunities“Diversity and Inclusion” is sometimes a challenge to older established uni- cultural teams. Any form of change is often rejected.Traditional “Diversity training” is often seen as a threat to the status quo.Any top-down intervention is often far less effective than a participative process.Intellectually learned diversity skills often do not “stick.” What is remembered is more “interesting” than a working skill.Multi-diverse team members often hang out with their own “groups.” This serves to “confirm who they are”, and does little to grow them.” Without active diversity understanding, teams cannot fully work together, nor can they connect effectively with their diverse clients.
  6. 6. Copyright CH Trust.Opportunities to expand through understanding Diversity.The right interventions have the effect of:-Reducing team and management stress.Removing conflict, gossiping, and back stabbing from the workplace.Improving professionalism, productivity, communication, interaction and accountability.Expanding markets, increasing profits whilst enjoying the journey! Positive change comes through willing people. Teams that delight in their work environment will love change and continuously seek opportunities through the diversities – of your team, clients and suppliers.

A & B Moore 2001 Namdeb Diamond Mining Corporation’s General Manager - Chris Sivertsen “Arthie and Brian and their whole team really live their message; they truly walk the talk. And the message “At the level of Respect, all People are Equal” is such a powerful one, a message that appeals to all employees in every company. They personally touched every person who attended their Diversity Training sessions, and this facilitated each of us to get emotionally and conceptually closer to our colleagues. ” (2500 people trained)Eskom Ltd – Ellisras (Feedback after 15 months)- “”Communication, respect andownership improved from all sides by 100%.The respect between different race groups has been restored and some of thepeople who were negative have changed so much that they have been promotedto higher positions with greater responsibility.”

  20. 20. Copyright CH Trust. Recent Feedback (Team Unity Programme) The programme is an asset to the development of people and South Africa. You have an excellent program and really is focused on bringing work teams together, resolving issues and helping them move forward positively. It is fun. I laughed my heart out. I learned a lot more about myself and what has affected me over my work and personal career, the personality sessions was a real eye opener to me. This team building focused for me on how people “work” and how they would like to be treated. What I enjoyed the most was the interaction between levels of the organisations. And the discovery of yourself in other people’s eyes. It is a very useful as a tool for understanding people and also discovering how little one knows about other cultures and customs. It is a totally new angle on “teambuilding”. Cultural dimension really brilliant. What I enjoyed is that an easy, open and relaxed environment is created. It is a well balanced programme – theory and fun – activities. It has been very informative, understanding how other people’s personalities are and so to deal with an individual according to their personality. The programme was not boring at all, well presented, the fact that facilitators understand different cultures, especially Africa culture with where we are coming from as South Africans.
  21. 21. Diversity Training Feedback (WC, KZN, GP) 16 July 2012 As a company we decided to use Celebrating Humanity as our provider for Diversity Training – in the Cape, KZN and Gauteng provinces. And what a good choice that was. Arthie and Brian Moore are absolutely amazing people who are able to bring out the best in people. The manner in which they present the training is really practical and uplifting. Our 411 employees thoroughly enjoyed the manner in which the interaction took place. What a pleasure to hear the positive feedback from the employees. Some wanted to attend the training again! As a company we found that employees who never really had contact with one another were able to get first-hand information about one another as well as glimpse the world in which they live. I would recommend Arthie and Brian for any training that involves getting people to understand one another as well as one self. The positive energy they bring into a room is electrifying and certainly makes all attendees come alive. This training has really had a positive impact on all our employees and it shows within our company family. Should a company make use of Celebrating Humanity, there will only be a positive outflow from contact with this amazing provider. Yours faithfully JANINE CROCKER – HR ADMINISTRATOR Beekman Super Canopies (Imperial Group)
