In this course, we will examine diversity through a more comprehensive perspective. Diverse teams that see, think and act from a multifaceted approach are the ones creating world class innovation. They are the world leaders because they welcome differences and foster collaboration while demanding innovation. Human Resources professionals are perfectly positioned to foster this innovation if they leave the old, narrow methodology and embrace the new paradigm of diversity.
First, we will examine the limitations of the old Industrial Paradigm’s emphasis upon quotas and ethnicity and why the Sharing Economy demands a different approach.
Second, we will explore several components to diversity that have been proven to build innovative teams.
Third, we will create a strategic plan for building diversity in your organization.
Fourth, we create an action plan for implementing diversity from your position of influence within Human Resources.
Dr. Loren Murfield is a Visionary Facilitator, working with aspiring and emerging leaders to think bigger and reach higher to do what others consider impossible.
Few would have thought they would be seeing him in this role today because as a middle child of 8 and the 4th of 5 boys, no one expected he would do anything significant. They would have thought any graduate work, especially a Ph.D. was out of the question, especially given he didn’t get his bachelor’s degree until he was 33. No one gave him much of a chance to teach college on the east coast after growing up on a farm outside of a tiny town in South Dakota. If that isn’t enough, most thought it was clearly impossible for him to write 8 books in one year, become an entrepreneur, teach in a graduate leadership program or coauthor a Heisman winner's biography. No one really could see it, but that is part of the fun – doing what no one thought we could do.
Dr. Murfield works with aspring and emerging leaders every day. Some engage in his monthly mastermind, others in his executive coaching, while others have him write their book, white papers or weekly blog. Still others bring him in to speak professionally. They engage with him because he helps them think bigger, work smarter and achieve their breakthrough.
In every session, client comments always follow a similar theme, "Wow, I hadn't thought about it that way before. That will make a critical difference."
How does he do that? Dr. Murfield uses his 3D approach for leveraging leadership power. The secret to disruption is not wielding power but connecting to collaborate and then create.
