There is greater satisfaction in respecting our differences, but not letting them prevent agreements.
~ John McCain
When you walk into your workplace, does everyone look the same? Almost identical replicas of the same person, work history, mannerism, method of speaking?
What would happen to the communication and collaboration in your workplace, if there were more diverse and inclusive colleagues?
What value would respectful perceptions and difference of opinions bring to the ideas and decisions?
What would clients and customers see as a result?
Plan ahead, and narrow the focus for the upcoming conversation.
Stay on track, and plan your strategy for the next conversation.
