CONVERGENCE offers financial leaders and those in traditional industries the perspective that our differences are the solution, not the problem. In support of this, we examine differences between team members, and the ways that matching and respecting these differences can support better communication, more productive innovation, and greater company returns. We remove the punitive layer of “diversity training” and put differences and inclusion on the daily business agenda, helping leaders to establish new perspectives and encouraging them to help staff understand each other better and to maximize on a diverse set of talents instead of segmenting teams by type. Designed as both empathy and sensitivity training, this program helps managers set up a system that embraces creative change, business progress, and deep and progressive leadership. This is a program where we examine bias from obvious perspectives like gender and race, and then expand to include behaviors, motivators, creativity, sensitivity, empathy, and a global cultural approach.
This program is presented in a dynamic interactive workshop format with discussions, group activities, mini-lectures, role-playing and looking at differences on a team as the solution and the process, not the conflict. Intensives and special programs cater to one company’s specific needs and with modified length and focused modules.
