Event description


"Expand Your Cultural Intelligence"

Cultural Intelligence can be understood as the capability to relate and work effectively across cultures.

Why do some individuals and organizations easily and effectively adapt their views and behaviors cross-culturally, and others don't? What factors explain the difference?

This workshop will help define "culture" and explore how culture influences an individual's thinking and behavior. Participants will review practical reasons why culture matters in professional relationships with clients, and have the chance to reflect on their own cultural background and how to expand their own cultural competence. Ten core cultural value dimensions will be discussed, to provide participants with an enhanced way of understanding and describing the most important cultural differences that exist across the world.'
