DEI Design is crucial for reshaping thinking and boosting creativity in today’s rapidly changing environment. This presentation addresses how to maximize Thought Diversity by taking participants through the 4-steps of the Matrix Model Management System: 1) Storytelling Communication: use stories and cultural expression to communicate across cultural boundaries, 2) Emotion Metrics: build internal & team measurements for comfort levels and 3) Wisdom: develop wise decision making using Knowledge, Character, Vision, and Action – and 4) Planning: design programs customized to meet the needs of employees and clients.

Create Programs that …

1)  Communicate Effectively with stories that reach across cultural differences and avoid unconscious biases.

2)  Manage Conflict by developing metrics that enhance emotional intelligence.

3)  Problem Solve by using wisdom categories for improved decision making.

4)  Develop short and long-range plans with goals, objectives, benchmarks and time frames for success.
