Your Best Approach
To Unity In Diversity
CAN YOU AFFORD TO MESS AROUND WITH DIVERSITY?
Probably not. The issues are complex and volatile.
Poor choices and bad programs can sting the organization or community now
and haunt it for years to come. The expertise required to do effective,
productive diversity work must be outstanding, from needs assessment
through facilitation. Be careful. Don't stir up a hornet's nest without
a good beekeeper. A reeeally good beekeeper.
Berthelot Consulting provides powerful
new strategies and tools to promote and foster Unity in Diversity. We help
individuals, businesses, organizations, churches, schools, and communities
achieve that ideal.
UNITY IN DIVERSITY SWEETENS EVERYTHING
Your diversity success--or failure--impacts
every aspect of your organization, including your quality improvement,
training and/or teaching success, employee relations, performance, customer/client/patient/student
relations, profit/other rewards, pubic/community relations, and growth.
Your unity in diversity effort must serve your purpose and mission. It
should be integral rather than a thing apart. We'll help you reach
these goals: to inspire acceptance and appreciation of all kinds of human
differences, to enable full use of human potential, to improve collective
performance and productivity, and thus assure a better quality of
work and of life for everyone. In short, the
right diversity program will help you achieve whatever else you want to
achieve. Diversity problems, on the other hand, will interfere with your
purposes and impede your progress. Why suffer unnecessary pain?
BUILD ON A SOLID COMMUNICATION BASE
Berthelot Consulting creates Unity in Diversity
through communication, rather than more common legalistic, adversarial,
or political strategies. Contrary to what passes for diversity training
in many organizations, real communication must be the foundation of any
successful diversity effort. Diversity is the reality of this century.
As we near the millennium, Unity must be our goal. Our approach synergizes
diversity issues with team building and conflict management, and builds
on sound communication principles and practices. Beware of anything

NOT an easy check list of what’s politically
correct or popular this minute.

"get away with."
NOT a hostility fest that leaves people wounded,
bleeding, and stranded.

down anyone’s throat.

NOT dynamic entertainment for an hour or two and
then we’re outta there...
