Managing Across Cultures

Managing Across Cultures

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.
