In the current era of globalization, we are constantly challenged with cross-cultural cooperation and coordination. However, many of us are unaware of cultural differences and their impact on our ability to work effectively.

 Professional success in a global setting is largely determined by our ability to appreciate various cultures and to address cultural differences competently and constructively.

Approach

This training program is intended to raise your awareness of the possibilities and issues of working with sets of cultural values, beliefs and judgments different than your own. The training also features the impact of culture on communications, teamwork and management. You will begin by examining the various dimensions of diversity between people and later understand how examining these differences, transforms unnecessary bumps into effective jumps. You will then focus on cultural diversity between people and will analyze the basic components of culture, as well as, examine the sources of cultural differences. The next step will concentrate on describing models of cultural differences and applying them in a comparison between several cultures. Subsequently, you will be introduced to a strategy for managing cultural diversity and will implement this strategy for developing effective cross-cultural teamwork and cooperation.
