Building Bridges: Crossing over to a New Cultural Frontier at Work

Building Bridges: Crossing over to a New Cultural Frontier at Work


Product Description

Our modern workplace is forever changed. Global economic and demographic forces have altered the workplace landscape more rapidly expected, and many organizations are simply not prepared to venture into these new cultural frontiers. As the range of cultures represented in our colleagues, clients, and supplier’s increases, real and perceived differences emerge along with challenges that can impact our relationships, productivity, communication, and the bottom line. However, when understood and effectively harnessed, this diversity enables us to work toward common goals and contributes to growth and innovation. By building our cultural competence, we can bridge cultural challenges and learn to better understand ourselves and others, to prevent and rectify misunderstandings, to communicate effectively across cultural boundaries, and to successfully cross over to the new cultural frontier at work.

After attending this session, attendees will be better able to:

  • have a strong understanding of the current economic, demographic and social realities Canadian businesses face and learn how they will impact how we work
  • understand the nature and role of culture in their workplace
  • identify benefits of building cultural competence – to themselves, to their teams, and to their organization
  • review general legal and regulated issues related to culture at work (included in full-day session)
  • consider success stories of organizations that have successfully built bridges to address cultural challenges
  • start a conversation about next steps towards building bridges in their own organization    
  • co-create an action plan for building cultural competence at work (included in full-day session)

Session is a half-day and can be expanded to a full-day. Sessions may also be combined.  Please email us with your preferred date.
