Praise for Managing Diversity:
"A good general introduction about some of the challenges diverse people experience when working together. Five multicultural experts and consultants lend credibility to the content. Topics include stereotyping, communication styles and how people differ in their perceptions of teamwork, attitudes toward power and authority, and tolerance for ambiguity. Dramatizations feature managers primarily, and the leader's guide includes two training designs and several exercises. In general, a good model for analyzing multicultural teamwork. The video ends with a useful list of things people can do, particularly in their communication behavior."
