Diversity Icebreaker Workshop + Case Studies & Developments
Piotr Pluta, MA
Human Factors AG (Norway)

What is this Workshop about?

The Diversity Icebreaker is a uniquely dynamic and fun group learning process. It helps people to better understand themselves and others, and to find new ways to work together more effectively. The core of the concept is a short, psychological questionnaire and a debriefing workshop that lasts between 1 and 1,5 hours. The tool can be then used in many different directions and areas of HR development and management. More about the too:

During the 3-hour post-conference session, you will experience the Diversity Icebreaker workshop the way it is used with participants. The remainder of the time will be spent on discussing case studies, train-the-trainer knowledge related to using the tool and exercises applicable in consultation or training practice. The workshop is an excellent opportunity to learn a new tool and network with other facilitators, consultants, managers, OD experts, teachers and L&D professionals.
