About the course
This workshop provides participants with insights, knowledge and practical strategies to sensitively manage the issues and challenges associated with leading a culturally diverse team. Managers will understand how cultural diversity impacts on human behaviour and learn effective strategies to negotiate and deal with the competing challenges arising between staff from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
- Participants will gain understanding and knowledge of what creates their cultural lens.
- They learn why men and women communicate differently, what drives the communication style of other cultures, how to resolve conflict and how to maximize the benefits of a diverse workplace.
- Everyone leaves the session with a better awareness of their own personal values and how their past has created their current perceptions, behaviors and communication style. They develop new understandings for their own personal growth.
