Diversity is the unity we create as we accept the differences in others. Every encounter with another is an opportunity for positive change.

"Diversity is the unity we create as we accept the differences in others. Every encounter with another is an opportunity for positive change."
Dr. William A. Guillory, Innovations International Founder
In this century diversity has stretched beyond race, culture, or gender. It now encompasses the unique qualities that individuals possess. How well workers understand each others ' culture , background, and paradigm can correlate directly with a company's success.
Dr. William A. Guillory, taps 25 years of experience in diversity training and consulting, to create the rich content in his newest book, Diversity--A Unifying Force. He illustrates how in today's society, diversity is more important than ever in how we measure and produce success. Dr. Guillory says each of us as individuals, are responsible for making small yet dramatic changes in how we work with others. This can be achieved through a three-cycle learning process.
- Cycle One is recognizing our survival instinct, our basic needs and what we will do to meet them.
- Cycle Two focuses on achieving the next highest state of being, which goes past pure selfish instinct and teaches us to work with others for our mutual benefit.
- Cycle Three emphasizes the highest state of being and the spirituality of truly knowing yourself and how to give to others.
Diversity -A Unifying Force , defines these states and offers a manual on how readers can use basic exercises and self reflection to accept and work with others from diverse backgrounds. This e-book is now available as a free download at the Innovations International website.
Over the last 25 years Dr. Guillory has helped thousands of individuals at companies like Amgen, Toyota Financial Services and Textron learn to successfully collaborate with others through his publications, facilitated seminars, and workshops. He has found that "All conflicts have two equally justified positions." By recognizing this and using the tools he describes in his book, anyone can come away with a refreshed way of thinking about how to compromise, understand new perspectives, and achieve success.
