A Skill to Position You for Success

Intercultural competency is a top priority for hiring managers even if you aren’t pursuing an international position. Managing increasing cultural diversity in international business, or in any other working environment, is one of the major challenges that globalization has introduced to our world. These differences in culture can lead to higher levels of stress, conflict and uncertainty in the workspace. Cultural variables must be understood regardless of the background of each professional and it is imperative for organizational success now, more than ever, to bridge cultural gaps and embrace intercultural diversity.

In this program you will:

  • Know the basic concepts and variables at play to successfully lead and manage in multicultural contexts
  • Become familiar with models to analyze multicultural dynamics at work
  • Learn what to do to successfully interact with people from other cultures
  • Understand the reason why intercultural conflicts happen and practice how to solve and reduce intercultural conflicts
  • Learn tools to lead and manage across cultures such as how to reach an agreement with cultures different from North America
