Making the World a little better - through Giving.

Give a little bit!

One of the most important principles of our Celebrating Humanity International team, is to give more than we receive.

This essentially means that we do, what we do best, for free for deserving organizations - or organizations that impact the lives of others.

On 2 October 2009, we will honor the giving of the Johannesburg Hospice by running a free team building program, for their staff.

If we all took some time to support the givers, and those who do not have, the World will be a much better place.

There are so many of us who sell our time for money - and passionately talk of "making a difference" in the World. Yet when there is free, unbooked and unpaid for time - do we all loook for ways to make a difference, at our own cost?

We do. And we will keep on doing so!

Here is a little about Hospice...


Brian V Moore

The Hospice Concept:

Hospice is a concept of caring derived from medieval times, symbolizing a place where travelers, pilgrims and the sick, wounded or dying could find rest and comfort. The contemporary hospice offers a comprehensive program of care to patients and families facing a life threatening illness. Hospice is primarily a concept of care, not a specific place of care.

Hospice emphasizes palliative rather than curative treatment; quality rather than quantity of life."

Transforming Diverse Teams

Here is a great blog, by us, on Transforming Diverse Teams! Enjoy

Transforming Diverse Teams: "Save Money and Time, whilst building your teams - through Celebrating their wonderful diversities!

Even in tough times, the Dept. of Labour requires all companies to conduct diversity training. Yet these times require, more than ever, that companies build and motivate their teams. Celebrating Humanity ensures that you can do both!

The Consul General of the US Consulate, in Durban South Africa described our Celebrating Humanity programme as:- 'An unparalleled experience in cultural sensitization and team-building!'

Simply because you get both, at the same time - a Services Seta registered Workplace Diversity Training programme- and a stunning Team Build, that actually builds teams, respect, accountability and unity!"

We have a choice to be condemners, confirmers or co-builders. The 1st is a destroyer, the 2nd seeks friendship by hiding truth through cowardice and the 3rd focuses on building from a platform of truth, openness and candid observation and contribution.

Most people run from the 1st and the 3rd, whilst finding comfort with the confirmers.

Seek out your co-builders, take the input and grow, phenomenally!

When we all stop classifying ourselves by colours, races, religions, nations, genders, languages and tribes and only see ourselves and others, as members of the human race, we will set ourselves and the World free of selfishness, prejudice and war.

Brian V Moore - 30 8 2009 FB.

It is our simple faculties and skills, or our ability to find another way, that set us free from mediocrity - the ability to see, hear, feel and the skills to read, write, type, drive, to walk and to talk all open us up to incredible freedom. We have so much to be grateful for.

Managing a Diverse and Inclusive Organization

Here is a wonderful post that brings the importance of diversity management home,
by a Canadian expert.

Best wishes

Brian Moore

Managing a Diverse and Inclusive Organization: "Managing a Diverse and Inclusive Organization

As our work expands we are finding that more often supervisors are asking for assistance in managing a workforce that is becoming increasingly diverse and inclusive. This edition discusses the changes managers are experiencing in the ever changing workforce and the next edition will talk about diversity initiatives which may benefit your organization.

Some managers within organizations expect that, as the diversity of the population changes, so too will the diversity of their workforce. They believe that if people within the various diverse communities are 'qualified', then they would be hired into the organization. They believe that change will happen naturally over time.

However, a diverse and inclusive organization does not happen by chance. It requires a commitment from senior management and a plan to identify and address any issues. Diversity and inclusion is a journey that must be deliberately begun, boldly led, and constantly nurtured. Organizations must also recognize that"

Diversity Collisons

Linked in Discussion

From Billy Vaughn, PhD

Editor-in-Chief Diversity Officer

What are three examples of cultural collisions in the workplace?

Studies show that cultural diversity leads to increased innovation, competitiveness, and impact on the bottom line. However, harnessing that diversity is the key. One of the challenges is that cultural collisions increase as cultural diversity increases. This is one reason that cultural sensitivity training is so popular. What are some common cultural collisions you have experienced, witnessed or heard about?

My response

Good day to you Billy!

Our experience is that there are many very visible cultural collisions. Yet the most dangerous are those that run below the level of consciousness. These emanate from deep programming and affect the decisions that we make in terms of who to work with, talk to, confide in and select.

The visible results of these decisions often emanate in cultural them and us collisions. You always choose "them", and never "us." (This is not always cultural - in fact it is often other areas of diversity - be they gender, personality, communication style, history, experience, level, education, age etc.)

It is at this point that all the normal signs show up - backstabbing, gossiping, negativity, clashes and arguing. It is then that personalities clash and work styles just seem so incompatible.

And this is where transformational team building plays a huge role in building diversity intelligence, as a component of emotional intelligence.
