Working Across Cultures

Global competition for talent is in high demand. Skilled professionals are needed to work across borders more than ever. According to McKinsey Global Report, by 2030 there will be 3.5 billion people in the global labor force many of them engaging across cultures. We know that lack of cultural awareness and cultural intelligence leads to misunderstandings and misinterpretation which can be very costly for the individual, their team and the organization. Therefore, the skills needed to work across cultures are no longer ‘nice to have’ but necessary.

This workshop will help you build the cultural competence and cultural intelligence necessary at work across the globe. We will explore cultural complexity, different values around the world, examine six ways how cultures differ globally and how to build bridges across the cultural divide. Case studies and examples will help us to analyze misunderstandings and build stronger engagement and relationships across cultures and for you in your work. Everything you learn will be practical and applicable right away.
