Global Cultural Competence

Building Global Cultural Competence (2 Session Options)

Human behavior can be better understood in the context of culture. Ultimately, it’s the application of cultural knowledge that enhances one’s ability to interact effectively with people from different cultures.  Business and personal relationships in global and local settings can be enhanced when cultural differences among people are understood and such knowledge is applied.  Culture drives patterns of human activity and the symbolic structures that give these activities significance and importance.  Both sessions dissect culture into several elements that translate into behaviors that participants will recognize. 

Participants will learn strategies that will:

  • Enhance one’s cultural competence
  • Self-assess their own cultural style
  • Learn to identify the style of others
