  2. 2. Greetings! <ul><li>Molweni, Goeie dag, Good day, Guten Morgen, Sanibonani, As salaamu alaikum, Avuxeni, Thobela, Lotjhani, </li></ul><ul><li>Ndi matsheloni, Kusile, Hola, Dumelang! </li></ul><ul><li>Ola, Howdy, Kia ora, Bonjour, Habari gani, </li></ul><ul><li>Bhotani, Ni hao ma, Konichiwa, Shalom, Namaste, Vannakam, Hola, Ndaa, Muli-uli, </li></ul><ul><li>Muli-shani, Walale po, Mwabuka buti, Mwuli bwanji, </li></ul><ul><li>Heita, Namaskar, Kemcho, Yassou, Namaskarum, </li></ul><ul><li>Haribol, Narayan, Howzit, Ciao, Dobra jutra, </li></ul><ul><li>Peace, G'day, Dobri den </li></ul><ul><li>and the top of the morning to you! </li></ul>
  3. 3. Standing at a Crossroads. Businesses and organizations that are under pressure to transform 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. Diversity Interventions Outcomes Required <ul><li>“ Diversified environment, where all employees </li></ul><ul><li>feel the same about their workplace.” </li></ul><ul><li>Dudu Letseli - HR General Manager, Rheinmetall Denel Munition, in the original proposal request. </li></ul>“ 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. The challenges to building diversity understanding 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. Opportunities to expand horizons through understanding Diversity. The right interventions have the effect of:- Reducing management stress. Removing conflict, gossiping, and back stabbing from the workplace. Improving professionalism, productivity, communication, interaction and accountability. Expanding markets, increasing their profits and 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.
  7. 7. Some Expected Outcomes A strong environment of mutual respect. Open, clear and effective communication and interaction skills. Effective understanding of people, cultures, traditions, religions, commonalities and uniqueness. Accountability, ownership and responsibility for self, team and organisation. Environment of solution-finding and praise. Understanding attitudes and their effects on relationships. Conflict resolution skills to prevent challenges within business and home relationships. Leadership skills and understanding, to motivate, and get the best out of teams, colleagues and clients. United, motivated and professional teams and teamwork.
  8. 8. Testimonials At the Level of Respect All People are equal! 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 and ownership improved from all sides by 100%. The respect between different race groups has been restored and some of the people who were negative have changed so much that they have been promoted to higher positions with greater responsibility .”
  9. 9. Testimonial – International and South African Team On behalf of the U.S. Consulate General in Durban, I write to extend our appreciation for an unparalleled experience in cultural sensitisation and team-building! The 2 day session made our diverse team stronger and more supportive of one another. This (team building) was by far the most meaningful and effective in fostering good communication, mutual respect and a strong spirit of cooperation amongst our multi-cultural staff. Jill Derderian - Consul General An unparalleled experience in cultural sensitisation and team-building!
