Influencer #3: Diversity and Inclusion
Your Diverse Workforce = Employee Differences In:
Generation / Ethnicity / Religion / Region of the World
Sex / Work Style / Abilities / World Views and more …
Data Source: “What Differences Make a Difference,” Mannix, Neale
Now more than ever, strong diverse and inclusive work cultures is a major differentiator.
How can diversity produce both the Highest functioning teams and the Lowest functioning teams?
The highest functioning diverse teams explicitly leverage and bridge their differences within a culture of inclusion. When everyone has the opportunity of express their true selves, performance excellence and Innovation soars.
Lower functioning diverse teams tend to encourage a “mainstream” attitude. Differences adapt or are swept aside in denial. The end result: Non-inclusive cultures with unresolved tension and underperforming, disengaged employees and teams.
