Event description


In this interactive workshop we will show how to use DISC to foster collaboration and to manage conflicts in your teams.

What is the value of Diversity and Inclusion on teams and how to leverage this?

Today’s organizations, teams and leaders realize the importance and impact of leveraging diversity and fostering inclusion to enhance innovation and organizational success. They know that their differences are their strength.

  • Diversity goes beyond visible differences to include and embrace different educational backgrounds, professional knowledge, personality types, thinking styles and life experiences. But just having diversity alone is not enough. We have to embrace, appreciate and leverage this diversity.

  • Inclusion ensures that the mix works by fostering proactive behaviours that create an environment in which all people are actively included, heard, treated fairly and respectfully.

Teams that value inclusive behaviors know that the best solutions come from

  • gaining and respecting different perspectives,
  • harnessing diverse thinking,
  • asking and answering hard questions and
  • challenging the status quo.

Only in that way, they can discover the best ideas and develop truly innovative solutions.

In this session we will explore techniques such as personality profiles and working with DISC as a example, and how they can support project teams to leverage their team diversity and foster inclusion, openness and collaboration in order to have stronger business impact.
