Diversity Training in Denver, Colorado – Effective, fun!
Diversity Training in Denver, Colorado – reported best ever!
Who would think that Diversity Training in Denver, Colorado would be called fun? Well, that was exactly what workers in Pitkin County Colorado thought about two diversity trainings that we offered in August and October, 2013.
We combine DiSC Personality Style Training in the morning with an afternoon of experiential, though-provoking Diversity exercises to create an impactful and yes, even fun day!
The HR Director who hired us said it was the best diversity training she had ever been in. Everyone was engaged and they are still talking about it weeks later.
The key was that we identified Personality as the core of our diversity differences and similarities. After all, our personality really is who we are! When we can see the patterns of our personality and how they are different from others, we can start to see our differences as something that is NOT PERSONAL – it’s just different styles.
This first part of the day lays a great framework of trust, honesty and engagement that makes the second half of the day transformational. We dive into understanding differences and building on similarities that really have people reflect on things they maybe had not considered.
One of the exercises we do has the participants sharing stories about discrimination in a safe way that really allows people to empathize and see themselves in others in a way that brings the team together. This is not your usual Diversity Training in Denver, Colorado! This is very powerful.
At the end of the day we have the team come up with a poster that reflects the best practices that they want to incorporate and the kind of team they want to build.
Diversity training in Denver, Colorado sometimes has a bad reputation or elicits a “here we go again” attitude from trainees. Not this training. Give Transformative Training a call and let us work with you to design the best Diversity Training in Denver, Colorado and beyond to meet your needs!
