Presenter 1

Presenter 2

Have you ever wanted to be on a team or work on a project but were not asked to join or help?

Think for a minute about . . .

The people in your unit at home

The people you work with

Are there people you count on all the time? …same familiar people — Your “first-string players” …


First-String Players

Do they have the same work ethic as you do?

Are you alike in many ways?

Do you know them better than others?

What about the other players?

How are they different?

Leveraging Diversity Through Inclusiveness

Any dimension that can be used to differentiate groups and people from one another.

What is Diversity?

Human Diversity

Our “raw material”

Leveraging Diversity

What are the barriers?

  • Comfort in sameness, learning in difference

  • Resist change, even when positive

  • Lack of understanding drives difficulties

As leaders and role models help our youth

Achieving Diversity

Accepting Diversity Drives Inclusiveness

  • Successful patrols function as a team

  • Successful patrols put differences to work

What Happens…

…when a patrol makes diversity work?

  • Achieve success

  • Experience richer for ALL

What Happens…

…if diversity isn’t made to work as a strength?

  • Experience negative treatment

  • Emotions build and become a barrier

What can I do?

When you lead…

  • Offer challenging opportunities

  • Demonstrate leadership behavior

  • Show you care

  • Recognize achievements

  • Learn something

Food for Thought

  • Are you teaching one another skills?

  • Is there a supportive environment?

  • Is the team ensuring everyone is performing?

  • Does the group celebrate?

  • Does everyone feel like they are contributing?
