DIALOGUE: NOW YOU'RE TALKING (In PeopleSoft: Dialogue: CDW01; Generations: DAG03; Genders: DBG02; Cultures: DCU01)
Dialogue isn't a natural form of communication.  When we feel threatened or in conflict, we humans tend to defend our positions or ideas and resist exploring other options.  Yet it is exactly at those times that we most need to build trust, respect, and mutual understanding if we are to overcome our differences and find productive paths to effective collaboration. 

This 8-hour, four course series begins with Communicating in a Diverse World and then progresses to units on Dialogue for Cultural Understanding, Dialogue Between Genders, and Dialogue Across Generations.  A must-have for better appreciating our wonderfully diverse world that we live and work in.

DIVERSITY IN 3D (In PeopleSoft:  DIV001)
This 2-hour workshop discusses how to Define, Discover, and Direct cultural, age, and gender diversity so that employees can increase understanding of themselves and others, build better teams and working relationships, and identify and respond to social change within our organization.
