Diversity

 

 

Diversity is hardly a new concept, diversity is at the heart of what the U.S. stands for, it is at the heart of demographics composition of people, the way people think, the way people perform their tasks and perceive others.

 

A diverse workforce has a business advantage as it can bring a variety of experiences, innovative solutions and creative point of views that generate a better understanding of the marketplace, customer needs, and shareholders making organizations stronger and better prepared for the future.  Nevertheless, when people from different backgrounds meet and start to interact, conflicts can arise.

 

At the workplace, diversity is an environment where differences are valued and integrated into every part of every day to day organizational operation. 

Diversity is about asset building and not finding problems, it is about finding our similarities and working with our differences.   Diversity and inclusion mean respecting and valuing all nationalities, cultures, religions, sexual orientation, ages, abilities and disabilities, gender economic and social backgrounds and diversity of thoughts.


                                    

                                                                                           


Sahar Consulting, LLC. is a Diversity business consulting firm in Los Angeles, CA.

 

Each group has its own culture, and it is important to note that there are cultural differences within the same group.  Many people including some leadership positions have a misguided perception that cultures are only about people’s skin colors, different ethnicities or religions, which is very surprising considering the emphasis that is being placed on diversity and the importance therein.

 

Culture is behind everything we feel, do, say, and perceive, it also controls our behaviors.  Cross-cultural awareness is a crucial part of any modern organization if they want to find their place in the global market or even within the multi-cultural domestic market.


Diversity and Inclusion start with D.I.A.L.O.G.™(Exchanging ideas through conversation) the reasoning behind our signature programs, it is about sharing and exchanging best practices and being committed to honest and clear dialogue that result in inclusion. 

 

  

Diversity & Cross-Cultural Competence


 

We know that diversity is the fuel that lights creativity--that sparks the whole organization to embrace all viewpoints and stretch the organization's inventiveness and imagination.

 

After all, says Sahar (co-founder), "Much time and funding is spent trying to get corporate staff to break out of rigidity and find creative solutions. When that staff is diverse, creativity is a natural process."

 

Putting it simply, the cross-cultural challenges we face will not just go away on their own, or just because we learned to accept them. We have to address them, start a candid D.I.A.L.O.G about them; capitalize and embrace the beauty of our differences.  This is especially important to organizations as it targets their very basic existence and the dollar bottom line by increasing productivity.

 

Our services are ideally suited for companies and organizations that are:


  • Meeting styles
  • Time management
  • Negotiation
  • Communication
  • Work styles
  • Conflict resolution
  • Leadership
  • Marketing
  • Employees’ engagement

  • Customer service
  • Performance

Understanding and appreciating cross-cultural differences ultimately promotes clearer communication, breaks down barriers, builds trust, strengthens relationships, opens horizons and yields tangible results in terms of business success.

 



Why care about Diversity& Cross-Cultural Competence:

Increasingly, both research and "bottom line" information indicate that attending to diversity and cross-cultural issues is an extremely cost-

effective investment in terms of human and financial resources for achieving organizational goals. When people feel valued and are at ease in their personal and work space, not only they add value but they also increase productivity and creativity ensues. This translates into higher talents recruitment and retention on the internal side and higher customer satisfaction and customer retention on the external side.

  

Why use Sahar Consulting, LLC.:

The subject of diversity is often confined to the worlds of academia and human resources.  In those worlds diversity is not always seen in a positive light.  In fact, some see it as a touchy subject to be pushed aside.

We know that diversity is the fuel that lights creativity--that sparks the whole organization to embrace all viewpoints and stretch the organization's inventiveness and imagination.
