Dealing with Diversity...
Wilna
What if we're in a democracy where people are stuck, scared, and do not want to except the responsibility to change? What if we're in an organization where people do not believe in change? What if we struggle with language, race and identity issues? How do we deal with it in a democracy where people have a different understanding of the mission and vision of the organization? How can a leader motivate people into discussion in a diverse society where values impact on mission and vision of organization?
 

 
Dealing with Diversity in a Democracy
Isaac E. Kruger, Management Consultant, South Africa, Member
I would say that change is a democracy. Every individual has the right to decide whether to accept the new order or to reject it. It is unfortunate that wars have to break out in order to force change. Now, diversity, being in it's nature related to difference, means accomodating alternate views and customs. That is the foundation of change;not out there, but inside. Dealng with diversity says to me that I have to be the change I want to see in the world!
