GOBINDER GILL BIOGRAPHY

Gobinder Gill is a #1 Best Selling Author on Amazon – “Achieving Prosperity through Diversity.” He trains companies in the art of Diversity and Cultural Sensitivity to bring greater harmony, productivity and profitability in the workplace. He has worked in many facets of the media dealing with diversity issues. Gobinder Gill experiences cover all facets of radio, television, film and print.

Gobinder Gill was a reporter for CBC television, contributed freelance articles for the Vancouver Sun and wrote a weekly syndicated multicultural column for the Metro Valley Newspapers. As a journalist, he interviewed high profile personalities including Mother Teresa. In 2013, he spoke at the TEDx Stanley Park Diversity: Evolution of the Unthinkable. Gobinder Gill was also featured in the Canadian Immigrant magazine. In addition to appearing in films and television commercials, Gobinder Gill has worked as a Set Dresser on such shows as Dr. Doolittle, Air Buddies and Psych.

Gobinder’s purpose and passion is to motivate and inspire others to embrace our differences and similarities. Gobinder Gill teaches his clients to make a shift in their attitudes toward others by approaching them with the recognition that we are all different, gifted and follow different journeys – and that there is much we can learn from each other. Gobinder Gill approach is always positive. He also urges businesses, CEOs, HR personnel, managers and supervisors to view :Diversity in the Workplace” as a business opportunity and not as a hindrance. Gobinder holds a bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Richmond, B.C.

Everyone is gifted, but not everyone realizes their gift and leads a fulfilling life. Many fail to recognize their true purpose and passion in life. One of the main culprits is that people begin to believe the false labels stuck onto them by their family, friends and society. Over time they begin to shackle themselves with these labels. This stunts their potential to fulfill their dreams and aspirations and they become prisoners of these labels.

Gobinder Gill, himself, was once labelled as stupid, ugly and one who would amount to nothing. As an immigrant orphan child he endured more obstacles in life more than one can imagine: he suffered all kinds of abuse and racial prejudice, ate from garbage cans, weighed 61 pounds at the age of 13 and had no jacket in minus 30 degree winters. However, Gobinder Gill refused to believe the naysayers who said he wouldn’t amount to anything.  Gill followed his passion and built a distinguished career in the broadcasting industry where he found himself once again facing prejudice and naysayers.

Gobinder Gill looks at the fundamental flaws we all face and offers practical tools and techniques to free yourself from self-imprisonment.  He offers private consultations, public speaking engagements, seminars and workshops.

Avoiding Stereotypes in the Workplace

  • Stereotyping is one of the biggest culprits in determining the morale of a workforce. People who get typecast for whatever reason inevitably perform poorly, which adversely affects the productivity of the entire organization. Stereotyping is a form of personal bias and can occur at all levels in the workforce.

    This presentation will assist managers, business owners, executives, employees and human resources personnel recognize the warning signs so they can avoid and keep this hurtful and detrimental practice from occurring on their watch.

Successfully Leading a Multicultural Workforce

  • The biggest asset any organization has is their employees because they are the ones who make things happen. It has been proven that many recruits leave their employer, not because of the wages, but rather because they are not respected, appreciated or valued for their contribution at work. For companies to successfully compete and prosper at home or abroad, they must know not only how to retain, but more importantly, know how to successfully lead their workforce in the 21st century.

Free Yourself From Imprisonment

  • Everyone is gifted, but not everyone realizes their gift and leads a fulfilling life. Many fail to recognize their true purpose and passion in life. One of the main culprits is that people begin to believe the false labels stuck onto them by their family, friends and society. Over time they begin to shackle themselves with these labels.

    This stunts their potential to fulfill their dreams and aspirations and they become prisoners of these labels. A positive change can often occur at a moment’s notice when a person finally decides that he or she cannot take it any longer. They awaken to the fact that they need to mentally unshackle themselves to move forward in life. What is the difference between a person who succeeds and one who doesn’t? Often it’s because they have a different way of thinking which empowers them to take concrete action.

    You too are gifted and have unlimited potential but your gifts and talents can only be attained when you learn to free yourself from self-imprisonment through believing in your true potential. Gobinder Gill, himself, was once labeled as stupid, ugly and one who would amount to nothing. As an immigrant orphan child he endured more obstacles in life more than one can imagine: he suffered all kinds of abuse and racial prejudice, ate from garbage cans, weighed 61 pounds at the age of 13 and had no jacket in minus 30 degree winters.

    However, he refused to believe the naysayers who said he wouldn’t amount to anything. He followed his passion and built a distinguished career in the broadcasting industry where he found himself once again facing prejudice and naysayers. Gobinder Gill looks at the fundamental flaws we all face and offers practical tools and techniques to free yourself from self-imprisonment.

Benefits of Overcoming Unconscious Bias in Organization

  • Unconscious bias is one of the biggest culprits in degrading the morale of a workforce. Employees who are typecast for any reason usually underperform, which ultimately affects the productivity and profits of the organization. Unconscious biases often are the underlying attitudes and stereotypes that many people unconsciously attribute to another individual or group of people that affect how they understand and engage with a person or group.

    Apparent unconscious bias in the workplace, also referred to as implicit bias, is much more frequent than conscious discrimination and often inconsistent with conscious values. Bias is a prejudice in favour of or against one thing, person, or group from a certain culture compared with another, usually in a way that’s considered to be unfair. If not eradicated, it can often spread like rust on an automobile.

Advantage of Cross-Cultural Awareness and Understanding

  • Today’s workforce is growing increasingly diverse and at a rate that can be overwhelming. The diversity of its nature presents challenges for many in the workforce, be they management or staff. Understanding cultural differences is a two way street. However, diversity, inclusion and equity works when everyone understands and respects each other’s cultural proclivities.

    It’s not possible to know intimately every different culture, however, the more one knows, the better the chances are to avoid workplace cultural clashes. Being more aware and having a better understanding of other cultures not only improves harmony, but also boosts higher productivity and benefits.

Embracing Differences - Prosperity for Business and Community Success If

  • If we look around, the makeup of our streets, neighborhoods and communities are changing. And so is the workforce, which is now culturally diverse. Today’s average workplace consists of baby boomers, X-generation, Y-generation, Millenials, people of color, disability and LGBT2Q, etc. Community decision-makers as well stakeholders of organizations must make a mind shift to embrace and cherish the differences. These changes need to be viewed as tremendous opportunities in business and communities.

Becoming Resilient in Life and Career

  • Everyone is giftedbut not everyone realizes their true gifts that can lead to a fulfilling lifeOne of the main culprits is that people begin to believe the false labels impressed on them by their familyfriends and societyAnd such beliefs begin to shackle their potential growth in life and career

    But positive change is often around the corneryet to discover and implement change takes timepatience and thinking outside the boxAnd once they find itthe new reality comes into playwhich allows them to achieve unimaginable goals in life and careers.

As the Director of Talent Acquisition & Development for Beall’s, Inc., I have the pleasure of sourcing, assessing and implementing our corporate training and development initiatives. In 2016 Bealls wanted to focus on the importance of cultural awareness, in order to further embrace diversity within our organization. During our annual employee appreciation meeting we invited Gobinder Gill to be our Keynote Speaker.

Gobinder Gill presented a motivational speech to our team that was fresh, inspirational, enriching, and created a wonderful message. The feedback from our team was extremely positive, and his delivery was both authentic and full of grace. Gobinder has a very moving and elegant personal presence and presented the concept of cultural diversity with tremendous warmth and genuine tone/spirit. I highly recommend Gobinder Gill for any and all opportunities that he might seek in the future.”

Gobinder Gill was a delight to work with. His reasoned thinking, fair-mindedness, limitless energy, positive attitude and boundless enthusiasm made him a great team-mate and valued leader. He was much loved and respected by all. In fact, if it wasn’t for Gobinder, I doubt that these TEDx Stanley Park conferences would have been the wild successes that they transpired to be.

Gobinder Gill’s seminar was truly amazing! He was practically able to reach, connect and engage with every single person in our group. One of the many things I learned from his talk was how to find my purpose and passion in my career and life by simply asking several questions that I never thought about in the past. And since then, my outlook on life and job has changed for the better. Gobinder is professional, down to earth and…funny!

Your easy to follow ideas not only make sense, but are also thought provoking.

I learned many new ways to work within the ethnic community and appreciate the opportunity to be able to expand not only our own businesses but also the business of our 800 members.

Thank you Gobinder, I appreciate the help.

P.S. I received many comments that your passion is evident in your presentation. it’s encouraging to hear a speaker who loves what they do.”

Your words made me realize that although you experienced the same or more intense discrimination, and I am sure it hurt you, you did not let it bring you down. You had chosen a path for yourself and you continued to move forward while fighting all these distractions. You did not let them make you stagnant. That is the day I realized my mistake. It took me a long time to realize it, but I am glad you got me there. I was letting that hurt make me lose my focus. I was letting it make me feel incompetent and insecure. I was losing control. I had lost control.

November 3rd is when I realized that I need to take that control back. And now that you have helped me get back on the right track, I hope I don’t lose sight of who I am.
