Mauricio and the DTG team, our focus, our work has moved DTG toward this nexus or “sweet spot” where valuing diversity in the workplace and marketplace intersects with respect, trust, employee engagement and higher performance. Mauricio and his team believe if you respect all differences in your workplace, your people feel valued and respected and hence, they are more engaged and perform at a higher level. This is why a lot of our work is about respect, trust, and employee engagement. Mauricio is a former human resource generalist and also served as a demographic researcher for the Internal Revenue Service where he first anticipated the rise of diversity inside and outside the workplace. He had the good fortune to work with Dr. W. Edwards Deming, Peter F. Drucker, Drs. Crosby, Jurand, and Jerry Harvey.

What is a toxic employee and what is a toxic workplace.
How do we respond and not react to such situations and such people.
How can we detoxify the workplace – what are the skills and tools to do so and we will practice said skills and tools.
You will walk away with very specific, pertinent, uselful skills and tools to de-escalate, problem-solve, and resolve conflict.
Given current events – this is a very timely workshop and quite frankly might be cathartic, almost therapy-like for you to come (LOL – I think).
