Mental Strength Coaching on Cultural Diversity:

Diversity is about empowering people. It makes an organization effective by capitalizing on all of the strengths of each employee. It is not EEO or Affirmative Action. These are laws and policies. While on the other hand, diversity is understanding, valuing, and using the differences in every person.

To obtain that competitive edge, you need to grow your groups into teams that use the full potential of every individual. Teams are much more than a group. A group is collection of individuals where each person is working towards his or her own goal, while a team is a collection of individuals working towards a common goal or vision.

This helps to create a synergy effect with teams. . . that is, one plus one equals more than one. An individual, acting alone, can accomplish much; but a group of people acting together in a unified force can accomplish great wonders. This is because team members understand each other and support each other.

Their main goal is to see the team accomplish its mission. Personal agendas do not get in the way of team agendas. By using the synergy effect of teams you create a competitive advantage over other organizations who are using people acting alone. You are getting more for your efforts!

Final Thought on Cultural Diversity:

Teams that develop the best, most innovative and effective outcome are generally the most diverse teams.

The term team has become synonymous for people who work on the same project. But frequently this group of colleagues does not function as a team and therefore do not reap the benefits of working together. One of the challenges is leveraging the diversity of the team.

To achieve the best outcome, each individual member of a team must not only have diverse skill sets, experiences, and talents, but they must also respect differences and encourage full participation of every member.

More often than not it is differences that can cause disconnect in a team and prevent true team formation and the best outcome. It is the leader’s responsibility to initiate and maintain an environment that connects each of members in a manner that facilitates collaboration and promotes productivity and harmony despite their differences.
