    (SHRM Olympia is still seeking 4 Strategic HRCI Recertification Credits for this program)

    This 4-hour workshop will help business owners, senior executives, mid-level managers, human resource professionals, and all employees:

    • Recognize visible and invisible differences in individuals
    • Determine distinctions between the “Intent” of one’s words or actions in relation to the “Impact” our words or actions have on others
    • Discuss how personal values affect the ways individuals make assumptions and form judgments about others

    This workshop examines personal interactions and institutional practices that tend to reinforce stereotypes and cause individuals to form assumptions and judgments about others. The consequences of these behaviors affect individual performance, slow down team productivity, lead to protracted grievances or lawsuits, and end in negative media attention.

    The wisdom gained in this workshop will help individuals and the organizations they lead to become more culturally responsive, actively reflecting their stated values and achieving their desired visions.
