S.T.O.P. — TECHNIQUE FOR REDUCING CULTURAL COLLISIONS

How to Diminish Cultural Collisions through Courageous Conversations

Inclusive cultures encourage courageous conversations.

There are barriers, booby traps, and blocked roadways on our journey toward achieving a culturally competent work environment. People say and do things in the workplace without malice of intent, but nonetheless, some of these actions create a less than inclusive environment.

The biggest barrier to giving feedback when these challenging situations occur is fear. The major reason people do not speak up when they experience micro-aggressive behaviors is they do not know how to do so, especially  if they must interact with the colleague on a regular basis.
