Please join us on April 6th when Dr Tyrone A. Holmes present "Building Powerful Relationships in a Culturally Diverse Society" This half-day interactive workshop will help participants develop the awareness, knowledge and skills needed to improve communication, enhance inclusion and build powerful business relationships.



America is one of the most culturally diverse societies on earth. Whether it is based on race, age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, physical ability or communication style, you are more likely than ever to find yourself in a diverse organizational setting. While this diversity offers many benefits, it can also create barriers that inhibit the development of personal and professional relationships. 

Specifically, because of this session, you will be able to do the following:


  • Describe the difference between low-context and high-context communication and the impact these differences have on human interaction.
  • Identify your communication and workstyle preferences and describe how these preferences can impact your interactions with others.
  • Identify the ways prejudice and stereotyping have affected your life, and identify steps you can take to reduce the impact of unconscious bias.
  • Describe the 4 types of noise and the impact each type has on communication and the development of relationships in the workplace.
  • Apply skills such as the S.O.L.E.R. technique, metacommunication, self-disclosure, active listening and basic attending to reduce noise and improve communication across cultural differences.
