Summary

Through the interactive exercises, students are encouraged to examine their own beliefs and become more curious about other people’s way of thinking. Exercises are provided to encourage students to apply what they have learned during the course.

Workshop Description/Agenda

  • Learn industry recommended business writing procedures and best practices.
  • Learn from a professional with 30+ years business experience.

This course applies to both staff and managers. Members of staff learn how to interact with each other and their clients, and managers learn the important benefits of managing diversity systematically and successfully.

This is a highly practical course. The topic of diversity can be dull for some people. Our intention when designing this course was to make the content as interesting as possible while still delivering the core message. Through the interactive exercises, students are encouraged to examine their own beliefs and become more curious about other people’s way of thinking.

Exercises are provided to encourage students to apply what they have learned during the course.

  • A student manual or textbook for use during and after the class.
  • Instruction from an experienced business professional (minimum of 30 years) with at least five years in a corporate senior management position (CEO, President, COO, Vice President, CFO).
  • Real life exercises to support training materials.
  • Individual attention (classes are limited to four students).
