Description

Excel in multicultural working environments

Our workplaces are fast becoming more diverse and multicultural. To be successful in the 21st century workplace, the ability to communicate and behave appropriately with people from other cultural backgrounds has become an asset. In this interactive workshop participants will explore to what extent and how culture influences interpretations of the world, what to expect from a manager, how to communicate, make decisions, approaches to work and deadlines, and much more. The focus will not only touch on national cultures, but also layers of culture such as academic disciplines, gender, and generation. Participants will also practice different behaviors like communication styles and learn strategies to be more effective in a diverse and multicultural team and workplace.
