Background on This Chat Topic
A certain amount of conformity is needed to form an organization of any type. Demanding too much conformity crushes individuality and loses the value of diverse talents. How do you find the right balance? This is what we will explore in people skills Twitter chat this Sunday November 3rd at 10am ET.

Organizations today are embracing diversity through inclusion programs. Leaders are leading through employee engagement to tap diverse views and talents for success. This is progress. How can we keep this going and strengthen it? Let’s explore where and when the push to conform puts this at risk and how to prevent it?
Some questions that come to mind …
- What is the difference between conformity and uniformity?
- How can organizations create culture without stifling diversity?
- Does diversity have to be labelled as non-conformist?
- What tempts some leaders into demanding high levels of conformity?
- Can individual conform without losing who they are? How?
- How can we ensure that diversity is truly part of the culture?
These are just a few questions to get us thinking before we begin the people skills chat this Sunday! Actual questions will post during the chat.
So bring your personal perspective, all your experience, lots of curiosity, and your favorite beverage, and join us from around the globe for Twitter People Skills Chat this Sunday in the USA — Nov. 3, 2013 at 10am ET — to explore: Conformity and Diversity.!
