Valuing the Strengths of Diversity in Achieving Individual and Team Peak Performance


Valuing the Strengths of Diversity in Achieving Individual and Team Peak Performance


Over the past years and with increased intensity in the setting of our nation’s current crisis, I have witnessed many discussions about the need to end racism and bigotry and the need to be understanding and inclusive rather than making individuals feel “less than” or “other”.  The diversity of individuals includes not only ethnic diversity, but also differences in economic status, religious beliefs, weight, height, gender, and more.  Every individual deserves respect, kindness, compassion, and acceptance so we can listen to understand, appreciate, and love as we strengthen ourselves from the diversity of others.

As a physician, I often experience an impatience and internal unrest when discussions about a specific topic do not lead to actions or when “experts” create lists of action steps, assuming individuals have the necessary skills and tools to achieve those aspirations.  This is unfortunately what I have witnessed related to the current challenges of diversity, racism, and bigotry.

The Institute for Healthcare Excellence offers an experiential, skills-based curriculum, “Valuing the Strengths of Diversity in Achieving Individual and Team Peak Performance”. The goal of this program is providing necessary skills to individuals and teams to use diversity as a strength rather than a weakness and move beyond mere discussion to meaningful actions.  At the end of the program, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand how personal and cultural beliefs affect our decision making and how we interact with others.
  2. Understand and demonstrate how core communication skills are foundational for culturally sensitive communication.
  3. Understand the nature of assumptions and biases.
  4. Demonstrate awareness around the existence and impact of healthcare disparities.
  5. Understand the richness of diversity as an asset rather than a hindrance in achieving individual and team peak performance.

The Institute for Healthcare Excellence looks forward to partnering with healthcare organizations and non-healthcare organizations in your journey to implement actions which will help close the gaps which have been present over the years, however periodically become more acutely visible.  Please contact us at 904-834-7408 or for more information.
