DIVERSITY TRAINING VERY POPULAR
I recently met a fireman who said the best course he ever attended was on Diversity. When I run my courses on Diversity, which are conducted as live tours of cultural places, I get a consistent top rating. People find it a very memorable and uplifting experience. Of course it matters how the course is conducted, but why is it that they are so popular I wonder? Perhaps because we are exposed to diversity often, but rarely get the chance to learn it properly or for others to explain it to us professionally. Also we are attracted by the art and the sculptures, and want to find out more about the meaning and if someone can translate this to our modern lived experiences, then it is memorable. In a corporate course, we can come away with developing ourselves personally and professionally at the same time. For the organisation, such courses surely would improve staff loyalty and creativity.
