John Gordon's insight:
Everyone needs an office spouse?
On a serious note this has some truth. We work better if there is someone we can trust and who is supportive and can challenge our thinking in a friendly way. We make better decisions when we stretch our thinking in a comfortable environment.

Should CAPAs Be a Last Resort? | MDDI Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry News Products and Suppliers | Project and Programme Management | Scoop.it

Building a truly inclusive organisation

Building a truly inclusive organisation | Project and Programme Management | Scoop.it
As evidence continues to support the idea that a diverse workforce leads to more profitable and innovative companies, the next big challenge is to manage inclusion, something many organisations are struggling to deal with.
John Gordon's insight:
This article investigates the basis for building a diverse work team but identifies that it takes longer to make progress than in a homogeneous team. However, diverse team performance exceeds that of homogenous teams.

One of the biggest challenges in any team is the fact that we are all different. Misunderstandings and differing points of view and engrained habits often contribute to weaknesses in the team. Sometimes the team appears to be Storming rather than Performing, struggling through many pitfalls.
 
Perhaps we sometimes miss that the really important thing about diversity is not the things we first worry about, gender, age, nationality but it is each others differences and similarities. We need to better understand and appreciate each persons ability, style, skill and experience to form a higher performing more diverse team.

We also need to understand the organisational environment in which we are operating and to share a common purpose defined by a clear vision, mission, objectives and strategy so each person can contribute confidently in the forward journey in an inclusive manner.
