Benjamin Zander has two infectious passions: classical music, and helping us all realize our untapped love for it —and by extension, our untapped love for all new possibilities, new experiences, new connections.
Goldsmith wrote an interesting blog @ HBR about diversity tension. Do you agree with bellow bullets?
Utilizing diversity tension in the workforce requires that leaders understand that differences in race, culture, and background are advantages — not deficits — for effective teamwork and problem solving.Read the entire blog @ HBR.
To take embrace diversity tension, leaders need to:
- Create an inclusive work environment where people feel welcomed and valued for sharing their opinions and skills
- Recognize and reward successes that result from valuing diversity
- Assess the different learning styles and strengths in people
- Involve people from a variety of backgrounds in decision-making and problem-solving processes
- Utilize the full potential of all employees and build on complementary skills, backgrounds, and cultural knowledge
- Refuse to accept behaviors that attack the self-respect of others and confront people who stereotype others or display prejudiced behavior
- Participate in diversity training
- Involve a wide variety of people in their personal and professional lives, and take the time to get to know them

It’s a simple story that can be used as the basis for discussions, and for learning about our individual prejudices and each other’s differences.
We believe it is important to have the courage to point out our differences. We believe we can develop ourselves, our teamwork and our workplace through mutual honesty and curiosity. Only by acknowledging our prejudices and discussing them openly can we learn to accept and use each other’s strengths to eliminate those prejudices.
We talk about diversity in the workplace. A workplace where we use each other’s differences and strengths to achieve our common goals.
But showing consideration does not mean that we should avoid conflict: we need to discuss how we can create better results all the time for ourselves, our customers and our company.
