Session Summary:
“Unity is strength... when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.”    - Mattie Stepanek

Everyone has something to contribute – especially when it comes to problem solving, projects and innovation.  When leaders choose to leverage the best each person has to offer, everyone wins at work!  In this session, Judy will share the elements of diversity as the basis for understanding that each person has a unique perspective that is shaped by these elements.  The goal is for participants to leave the session with ways to effectively include others to gain the best results from collaboration, and an appreciation for others’ unique qualities and concepts.
