Spreading the Word

I know the work I do is different from many other consultants. I always seem to be pushing at the edges, not being prepared to accept the professional or political mainstream. Why do I feel the need to do this, I ask myself?

As a part of my Gestalt training, I learnt that we learn and develop the most when we are at the edge. Personal learning happens best when we are unsure, taking risks and pushing at the boundaries. There is nothing wrong with existing within the safety of the mainstream, but do we find the need for personal development when existing in our own safety zone?

The Equality Edge signature project “Working with Difference” came about because of the continual need to push back boundaries. Existing anti-discrimination legislation has many deficiencies – it protects but does not make change. That is why I have become so passionate about “Working with Difference” because it does change the way people think and work.

Making connection through difference, as does the WwD model,  is a powerful way to address problems at work; raising the equality practice bar, managing dysfunctional management relationships or handling sensitive issues of bullying and harassment. Even team building and other professional and personal development initiative can be undertaken through Working with Difference.

Three years of developing the project informs me of the success and potential benefits WwD can bring and it’s there for everyone to see! Why not check out some case studies and see how WwD could bring lasting benefits to your organisation.
