Do you work on a global team? Do you interact with international clients or partners? Are you interested in working more effectively with people from other cultures?

WHAT

Join the Cleveland Council on World Affairs for a series of workshops to develop skills for working more effectively internationally. Participation in the full series is recommend. Participants can also select the workshop(s) that suit their needs.

Learning outcomes from the series include:

  • Learn how to communicate more effectively across cultures
  • Understand one’s own cultural perspective
  • Identify and gain awareness of underlying dimensions of culture
  • Recognize the importance of approaching cultural interactions with an open mind

The entire workshop series is designed to build participants’ global competency. The workshops are intentionally interactive and self-reflective. We believe that self-awareness and a willingness to accept diversity and unfamiliarity are the foundation of truly successful cross-cultural interactions over the long-term. Our training is rooted in this philosophical approach, and it combines interactive and experiential content to invite participants to approach cultural interactions with a more open mind, while offering well-researched information about cultural nuances.

WHEN

March 4: Understanding Cultural Norms

March 18: Developing Cross-Cultural Strategies

April 1: Panel with International Business Experts

*April 15: Optional personalized assessment with debrief to measure progress. This assessment workshop is not included in full series. Pricing includes cost of proprietary assessment and review of results. CCWA Member $95; Non-Member $110

All workshops will take place over lunch. Lunch is included in registration fee. Space is limited to 25 participants due to the interactive nature of the training exercises.
