Cultural Differences Impact How We Communicate
How do cultural differences affect our behavior, and contribute to both problems – and opportunities in the workplace? We explore these issues, and provide context for multicultural teams to work together more effectively.
Culture is defined as “the behaviors and beliefs characteristic of a particular social, ethnic, age, or other group”. This includes obvious traits like language, dress, demeanor – and less obvious traits too – like time management, importance of relationships.
In this workshop, participants will:
- Understand the impact of culture on our behaviors
- Avoid team problems by becoming aware of the possible dynamics before there is an issue
- Learn more about our colleagues
Managing differences without giving offense can be a challenge, especially if you are working in cross-cultural teams, or managing projects across country borders. This workshop provides the solid grounding needed to manage this diversity well.
