DEVELOPING INTERCULTURAL COMPETENCE


Your Host: Alette Vonk

INTRODUCTION

Africa is full of opportunities and full of challenges: knowing how to navigate multinational settings in and from Africa is a pre-requisite for success. We will use Hofstede’s 6D model to shed light on professional differences between this and other continents and we will apply it to the differences among African countries on this vast land.

GOALS
The developing Intercultural Competence training will make you better equipped when faced with the challenges of intercultural business, enabling you to work effectively and confidently in an ever-changing world. You will gain a deeper understanding of what it means to work across borders and discover how to utilise cultural competence as a strength when dealing with cultural diversity.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Using a multi-method approach including case studies and lively intercultural discussions, this
programme will:

  • Introduce you to Hofstede’s 6-D model, a scientifically based tool that will optimise daily working practices in an intercultural context
  • Increase your knowledge of and insight into the importance of your own culture in determining your behaviour
  • Emphasise the significance of other cultures’ behaviours, assumptions, reactions, and expectations
  • Sensitise you to identify and deal with cultural challenges in your day-to-day work


BENEFITS FOR THE PARTICIPANTS
By completing the Intercultural Competence training programme, the participant will be able to:

  • Anticipate and react appropriately to culturally sensitive situations

  • Be mindful of your own culture and the effects it has on your daily work practices and understanding
