Diversity Icebreaker train-the-trainer workshop, half-day piotr-pluta-color-congress

Facilitated by Piotr Pluta ? Managing Director, Consultancy (Human Factors, AS)




The Diversity Icebreaker is a dynamic group training and development concept based on a questionnaire measuring preferences in communication, teamwork and problem-solving styles. In intercultural trainings, the Diversity Icebreaker breaks down stereotypes based on national culture, and stresses flexibility and communication skills as the bridges to explore diversity. The workshop empowers individuals and groups to esablish their own shared language and set of cultural norms to understand each other and work together effectively.

I enjoyed [the workshop] a great deal and I felt it was a great activity to make people consider diversity in different way. Lots of humour, it was very funny (…) it kept it light but gave a lot of information.

Former President of the SIETAR USA
