Event Description

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 organization, and leveraging the global talent pool.

 

In this 2-hour interactive webinar you will learn to;

  • Define what culture is and how it shapes the workplace.
  • Identify how stereotypes shape our perception.
  • Develop useful cross-cultural attitudes.
  • Communicate effectively across cultures.
  • Effectively manage employees from different cultures.
  • Help teams overcome cross-cultural and virtual barriers.
  • Promote acceptance and awareness in your organization to help create a multicultural environment.
  • Leverage the global talent pool.

While this session is part of a series, participants are not required to attend all sessions in the series or attend in any sequence.  Each session can be attended independently.
