Module 3 - Supervising People Who Aren’t You
This session focuses on strategies to intentionally build a productive, inclusive working environment for diverse teams as a supervisor and trainer. To do that, we look at diversity both in commonly understood terms (such as cultural upbringing or gender differences) and in the various ways that that diversity manifests at work (including how people communicate, make decisions, handle conflict, feel organized, what they value, recognize and reward, etc.) and discuss tactics to create inclusive spaces and processes for everyone to contribute to a more productive, functional work environment.
