Our conditioning and cultural backgrounds influence our thoughts, beliefs, attitudes and behaviours. We tend to see the world through our own limited cultural experiences. This perspective is short-sighted as we now operate in a more culturally diverse society.
Culture is often misunderstood. It is not merely different ethnicities, but in fact is much wider. Consider different age groups, different religious beliefs, sexual preferences, indigenous cultures and more.
Organisations now realise that their internal and external customers hail from multiple diverse cultures. The pursuit of cultural awareness can be haphazard and token unless there is sufficient organisational capability. Building the organisation’s cultural awareness capability is crucial to ensure that opportunities for growth, competitive advantage and talent and are not missed.
Designed by a team of organisational psychologists, change managers and cross cultural experts this course will help springboard your cultural ambitions. The course is a wakeup call to participants that culturally diversity is everywhere.
The tide of cultural change has never been bigger and it will continue to grow.
