Diversity Training Workshop

Diversity Training WorkshopIf you've ever had an a-ha or breakthrough moment, then you're exactly aware of how powerful awareness can be in shifting how you approach some of the biggest issues in life.

Shaman Jonathan Hartman has worked alongside a number of corporates to help them understand the diversity among their staff and help them grow harmony, peace, cooperation and productivity, and reduce discord and conflict effectively.

Diverse cultures, religions, lifestyles & languages

South Africa is a complicated country. We have 11 official languages, countless indigenous cultures. lifestyles and belief systems - and almost all of them are intolerant of each other.

Add into the mix the dramatic changes that are happening worldwide in terms of alternative sexualities and sexual lifestyles, and you have a brewing pot for disaster in your business.

If left unattended or not managed properly, the clashes that throwing all these differing opinions together can cause can impact your business on every level - from profitability to productivity, harmony, cooperation and communication, even management and hierarchical structures become challenged.

What will you learn in Diversity Training?

The main aim of Diversity Training is really to bring awareness and understanding to each of the participants, helping them to understand themselves and those around them better.

In order to achieve this, Diversity Training looks at aspects like:

  • How the circumstances of your birth and life have shaped you and made you who you are
  • How your upbringing and culture shape how you interact and engage with people, e.g. do you impulsively blurt out ideas because you're excited and do other people take that as you being rude?
  • The impact of nature vs. nurture
  • Left and right brained personalities and how these structured and creative people misunderstand each other and conflict because of their inherent personality characteristics
  • The various cultures, religions, belief systems and languages
