Peer Mentoring Roundtable Workshops - Working Across Multicultural Environment
This course enables participants to collaborate more effectively by resolving conflict in ways that build relationships.
A greater cultural similarity between people tends to create ease of understanding, commonality, and relatedness, which naturally facilitates easier communication. On the contrary, cultural differences between colleagues tend to highlight variances such as language, terminology, respect for authority, group identity, the directness of communication, and reaction to ambiguity. These differences frequently cause communication issues, including difficulty understanding someone or conveying meaning to someone, or unanticipated adverse responses to a comment. Cultural differences affect management styles, project delivery, and employee development. As the global workforce is becoming ethnically diverse, organizations must adapt and develop so that employees, key decision-makers, managers, and leaders start to make inclusive decisions in all aspects.
