When I begun my course at Federal University of Santa Maria, Brazil, I didn't like before of work with other people. The main reason of this is because always exist some people that don't do them work of the best ways and hence the responsabulity of the bed work is put on the hands of someone else. For example, you are working with people that frequentily make a bed work and you must have been correcting their work when they have wrong, but the problem here is how often they make a mistake. Sometimes one activity is put on the hands of someone else, when it's supposed that the activity is their responsability, not yours. However, at my 2nd semestrer at university, I joined in a group of people that have so different ways to see differente situations about something and I can see, today, that I learnt a lot with these people, which is amazing. The conclusion of this long coment is that: sometimes we are thinking that work with people is really bed, but we can have a lot of experience work with other people, learn how look at something of a differente way, for example.

there are so many diversity at my work also. I agree that different diversities get different ideas and experience and creative things.We also imitate who working skills, thinking skills and management skills as well.We can share our experience and culture also . Finally,i would like to advice you that different diversity is good one to improve your business.

In my office, there are many people from different origins, cultural groups and kinds of think. This is good because each insight might look since various points of view.

GOOD that is the world is need to help each other

When we talk of the diversity in team work I think that is important because from point of view business is necessary have people aligned for achieve of goal, and for this the ideas and opinions of the all can be complementary.

In my opinion it's very important to have diversity in all the type of groups because it will help you to have new ideas, new ways to think, learn about other countries, cultures or religions.
No matter which are your thoughts or your way of life, you have to respect others thoughts and ways of life.
I believe that the best way to do it it's sharing time with many different types of persons and learning how to work with them.

Diversity is the role of the life ,
we should learn from different culture different prospective which may lead to more success in the organization ..

I had a diverse workplace when I worked on ship. We got people from different countries like Russia, Ukraine, China, Philippine and so on. We had different ideas and ways in solving problems. It was fun. But not every times, we had a problem such a pronunciation when we talking. We used to talk about our traditions, ways of living and so on.

The harmony in the work group can be created by making the most of each person's skills and therefore the differences of thought and opinions, which must be verified and accepted from time to time, if they contribute to solving problems and achieving objectives

Diversity = New ideas!
