Working Across Borders, Cross Cultures
Working internationally challenges your worldviews, your ways of being and doing. Existing routines are called into question, and feelings can run high. Learning how to behave in a new cultural group is like learning to write with your other hand. The key is in how to deal with the cultural dynamics. A cultural intelligent person has the ability to apply his or her personal style of working and leadership in a way that is appropriate to a specific cultural context. Emotional intelligence applied in different cultural environments. With creativity and pragmatism. With realism and optimism. Celebrating the differences. The way we explore these differences is unique: we’ll use the universal language of music. Get ready to join us on a musical voyage of discovery, based around the Richard Lewis’ cultures model.
An up-tempo and inspiring keynote, about how to release the potential power of (cultural) differences. Depending on your needs, we will decide on the specific focus; the anthropological meaning of culture, cross-cultural communication, how to improve the levels of trust and understanding, boundary spanning leadership, inclusive decision-making...Lezing of masterclass aanvragen

The keynote will be the theoretic backbone, mixed with and followed up by interactive activities. The type of activities and working methods are always tailored to your needs, the cultural preferences of the group and the practical possibilities of the venue. We could work with an impactful simulation game to experience the dynamics in multicultural teams, dialogue further on the raised topics, statement games, and learn from the different people and cultures in the room.
