WORKSHOP: Cross Cultural Competence

Intercultural awareness training for successful interactions & conversations between people from different cultures.

Marlborough is home to people from many different ethnicities who live, work, and volunteer together. In an increasingly mobile, globally connected world, the ability to understand culture and culture related behavious is a core skill for successful personal as well as professional interactions.

In this one day workshop you will...

... reflect on your own cultural identity and the impact of beliefs and values
... increase your knowledge about culturally related behaviour and gain insight into cultural traits beyond confining stereotypes
... get to know models and tools to compare and understand cultures better
... learn about appropriate ways to communicate in different settings and minimize misunderstandings
