Description

Do I Always Have to be Politically Correct at Work?

Using skills and heart to build authentic working relationships


INTRODUCTION

You know that awkward moment? We’ve all lived it. That moment when you or someone you know feels tongue-tied talking to person of a different race or culture? Imagine the scale of impact on corporate growth and innovation. Our knee-jerk reaction, to minimize or not even acknowledge differences, may seem like go-along-to-get-along, but it actually undermines individuals as well as corporate productivity. Think you don't face these issues because your work culture is homogeneous? Differences not only include race but nationality, gender, age, previous work experience, and even the divisions between departmental mindsets like operations versus marketing. Get ready to develop a key skill for talking with people we perceive to be different.
.
