We got off track early with diversity by focusing on sensitivity to differences and by limiting those differences to race and gender. As a result, diversity and diversity management have been marginalized and the strategic value has become invisible. Meanwhile, management techniques have focused too much on identifying specific styles. There have been a series of fads targeted toward leaders and focused on addressing operational issues. In both cases, we have attempted to apply simple tools to an increasingly complex environment. We have not taken advantage of available talent because the link between people management, diversity of perspective, and performance was never made . . . until now.
Jim Rodgers, CMC, a confidential advisor to successful leaders in dozens of market leading companies, comes out of the shadows to reveal the secret to their success. Managing Differently™ implies that effective people management is the essential key to increasing performance for any organization. People are by nature diverse (different and similar) – and this increases the level of complexity in the workplace. However, getting 100% from 100% of people, 100% of the time is not only achievable – it is fundamental to world class performance. Jim uses simple language and vivid examples to help leaders and managers move from knowing to doing those things which produce high levels of performance from their people.
