Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Oxon Routledge 2019Description: xiii, 161 p.: ill. Includes bibliographical references and index.ISBN: 9781138602717.Subject(s): Multiculturalism | Diversity in the workplace | Intercultural communicationDDC classification: 658.3008 Summary: Unleashing the Power of Diversity provides a clear tool to create a common language across teams and organizations that reinforces positive identity, builds trust towards people and processes, supports innovation, and helps make diversity sustainable. The complex problems that many organizations and teams now face are global in scope, including cultural, social, and environmental issues. Challenges such as climate change, mass migration, and human rights do not respect national borders or sociodemographic groups. In order to solve these complex problems, we need the skills to be able to communicate effectively across the differences that may otherwise divide us. In this groundbreaking book, award-winning consultant and author, Bjorn Z. Ekelund presents a clear step-by-step approach to communicate with people who have different mindsets, perspectives, and cultural backgrounds. It is relevant and applicable across various contexts - within the workplace, inter-professional, across different industries and cultures, and between corporate, governmental, and NGO groups. The program developed in the book, called the Diversity Icebreaker, has been successfully applied across 70 countries and with 250,000 participants. It shows how to break down these barriers and provides a new way to conceptualize diversity across various boundaries, allowing for trust and unity to form and creating a pathway for improving communication. https://www.routledge.com/Unleashing-the-Power-of-Diversity-How-to-Open-Minds-for-Good/Ekelund/p/book/9781138602717
