Our culture defines many aspects of how we think, feel, and act. It can be challenging for managers to bridge cultural differences and bring employees together into a functioning team.
This course will give supervisors and managers easy-to-use techniques for communicating across cultures, building teams, promoting multiculturalism in the organisation, and leveraging the global talent pool.
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know other participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Participants will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
What Is Culture?
We’ve all heard of culture but do we really know what it is? This session takes a look at defining culture and some of its various forms. The session then segues into a look at stereotypes before concluding with a discussion of individual and organisational attitudes.
Communications can be tricky even within one’s own culture, not to mention across cultures. This session deals with communications under the lens of high and low context cultures while also tackling various forms of body language and other types of communication skills. The session wraps up with a look at handling miscommunication through a case study.
Team Building Across Cultures
The five stages of team development are covered in this mid-course session. Then the discussion veers to a look at how to handle working with virtual teams.
Managing Across Cultures
Diversity is the hallmark of working across cultures and it’s the opening of this session. Along the way the session looks at how far should you go to accommodate other cultures, dealing with culture-based conflicts and giving culturally sensitive feedback.
Building a Multicultural Organisation
This session holds forth a brainstorming session on how to build a multicultural organisation and then how to create inclusive programs for new employees.
Working with the Global Talent Pool
Today’s workforce is made up of much more than your typical 9-to-5ers from just around the neighborhood, it is made up of the workers worldwide. This workforce offers a global talent pool for employers and it’s discussed here along with how to tap into this pool.
At the end of the course, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.
For details on the differences between “in-house” and “all-inclusive” please see below
We’re keen to ensure that all the participants get the most out of the day, so ideally, we would love to have a room that has natural daylight, space to move, sit and write / work in small groups and utilise the wall space.
It helps to have the equipment provided but we can provide screen, projectors, flip charts and sound etc.
The “in-house” price includes training materials for all participants and a brilliant trainer… come coach… come facilitator.
The price excludes facilitator travel / accommodation (if required) and VAT.
Quite simply, we take all the hassle, stress and time required to organise your course off-site.
We will provide;
We think this is great value and ideal for companies who do not have the resource or time to organise the training.
Please see “Terms” for specific details on our all-inclusive offer.
Full Course Terms and Conditions are available upon request and are provided during the booking process.
