When incorporated effectively, this program will foster a workplace environment that embraces diversity more, enhances the Human Intelligence and will reflect the principles of DEI. These activities target the typical human communication obstacles encountered by those outside of the norm. Collaboratively, we’ll uncover and reduce the impacts of both active and passive discrimination. This collaborative effort will steer teams towards a more effective team, enabling them to perform at their peak. All while having fun.

HOW REBOOTER GROUP HELPS OVERCOME DEI  CHALLENGES

In 2024, our workplaces are more diverse than ever, yet old habits of discrimination persist. Market competition and risks, evolving employee expectations and demands for clearer communication are challenges forcing organisations to adapt. And how well employees interact with each other is crucial for attracting and retaining talent. A workplace where staff are left to their own psychological devices will lose employees in the 2020s.

Therefore, an empathetic and strong culture with robust DEI policies are key to using a diverse workforce’s full potential.

Unfortunately, many cultural change or team building programs have a strong initial effect, and then diminish over the next few weeks. However, Rebooter Group believes and has seen that long-term sustainable transformation in staff mindset and attitude is crucial. Good diversity training avoids blame and shame. We are all born into this world with different backgrounds and didn’t create the structural issues we face. However, we do have the choice to be aware and make positive changes.

Rebooter Group’s Human Intelligence Programs offer a new approach to culture management in Australian business. It uses applied improvisation methodology (AIM) and is based on client experience and academic research, including insights from Gallup, HBR and others. Through AIM, employees feel accepted, respected and trusted by colleagues and management. When this is proven to the employees, they often reciprocate and this achieves great employee engagement and satisfaction.

Rebooter Group’s Human Intelligence Programs include a list of data-driven measurements to show AIM’s effectiveness. This approach, unique to AIM consulting groups in APAC, ensures an focus on the process of change management and the real time effects on individuals, teams and the organisation.

With strong data, a strong culture and good DEI policies, organisations find it easier to navigate the challenges of continuous change in today’s business world, and lead to better outcomes.

Groupthink may become more of an issue in organizations today, according to Buchanan (2012), because while organizations are consciously seeking ethnic diversity in their members, they are not necessarily seeking diversity in thought. Although a homogeneous group configuration without ethnicity, age, or thought diversity can be a prime condition for groupthink, Improvisation seeks and encourages diverse heterogeneous groups with thought diversity as a precursor to innovative breakthroughs. One of the characteristics of members of a group that is prone to groupthink is the fear of speaking up when operating under directed leadership. Fear of speaking up is the opposite of the first principle of Improvisation, spontaneity in speech and action.

Therefore, following the principles of true Improvisation in organisations can help ensure that teams circumvent groupthink: Positive group outcomes of Improvisation.
