It is oftentimes relevant to have members of different teams, project, or departments participate together in a single Diversity Icebreaker (DI) workshop. DI is particularly fitted for this purpose as it builds trust, evokes positive climate, and makes people to get to know each other and quickly develop a sense of community – despite coming from different parts of the organization.
The default group profile is always included when ordering the online DI questionnaire. It will provide you with an overall picture of the total group, e.g. a whole organization. However, sometimes you might want to see total group as well as different subgroups represented in your workshop. The additional subgroup function makes that possible by asking participants an additional question about which team/department/project/etc. they belong to in the beginning of the questionnaire. You can then view the total group profile as well as the profiles of different subgroups present in the workshop.
This function allows for up to 20 subgroups.
Subgroup profiles are shown on the same page as the total group profile – below and slightly smaller. See an example below.
You can use subgroup profiles for follow-up work after the standard DI workshop. For example, ask participants to reflect on their strengths as group, their dominant preference, or how they can compensate for the colors they have little of.
Oftentimes, team-subgroups will have few enough members to discuss "distance" and "closeness" in terms of communication style between individual members.
Teams and project teams can also compare their own profiles with the total group: "Is our color profile representative for the entire organization or not? What consequences the difference we see can mean for us?"
All sub-profiles can also be shared in plenum for everyone to discuss various groups’ importance for different processes in the organization; or what could be improved in communication between teams and departments.
Sub-group function costs additional EUR 250 totally for up to 10 groups. (USD 280 outside Europe).
Use the Sub-group check box in the ordering form.
