Luthans and Doh (2012) mention multiculturalism and diversity in the workplace. Diversity can present communication barriers, which can affect productivity and positive work environments. Team-building activities offer an opportunity for work groups to collaborate, communicate, and learn about one another. Create your own, or select a team-building activity that creates opportunities for collaboration and communication among a diverse work group. Include the following criteria in your team-building activity: a. Describe the participants: i. At least three cultures ii. 4-15 members in the work group b. Describe an activity that: i. Promotes team work ii. Is not offensive to the cultures iii. Provides opportunities for fun iv. Provides opportunities for learning c. Describe how the activity will be effective for the diverse participants Create your own or select an activity from the Internet. You can find activities at websites such as www.managerialskills.org. Feel free to search the Internet for other activities. This team-building activity does not have to be industry or job specific. In fact, it should focus on teamwork and communication. The purpose of this short assignment is to encourage you to begin thinking about managing diverse work groups and how the work groups can participate in activities to enhance teamwork, which contributes to collaboration, innovation, and productivity. Management is not always about creating the activity, but selecting or recognizing an activity that is appropriate for the intended participants. Will it contribute to the overall return on investment of the organization? Prepare your assignment in a word-processing application and submit it as one of the following file formats: DOC, DOCX, or PDF.
