As organizations bring cultures together in the workplace, there is often an imbalance between creating a cohesive workforce identity and respecting differences. When it comes to 21st Century leadership in culturally diverse, change- filled, and complex contexts, our ability to navigate these intercultural differences is key.

Globalization has catapulted people from different cultures into shared physical and virtual spaces in homes, relationships, schools, neighborhoods, and workplaces, resulting in new forms of misunderstanding and conflict. Evidence suggests that the ways we resolve conflict differ greatly across cultures and social groups. Whatever issue sparks the conflict, the methods we use for resolving it frequently make the problem even more problematic. Organizations value the idea of collaboration, but aspiration and reality are often far apart. Having people work together across physical, psychological, and cultural distance presents both challenges and opportunities to facilitate human connection and understanding.

Think of this workshop as intercultural strength training with fast-paced core exercises and activities that are designed to improve intercultural effectiveness and support the characteristics of cultural agility. Topics will include emotional intelligence, cultural patterns of thinking and behavior, styles of communication, assumption and values, and cultural adaptability.

We will examine the impact of intercultural communication on our perceptions, attitudes, and values; how we judge others by the way they speak or behave; how we each can contribute to better understanding and reduced conflict among people of different cultures.

Above all, you will have the opportunity to examine your own deep cultural programming and identify strategies to enhance intercultural effectiveness and truly embed inclusion within your organization.

Note:
The Workshop will be held in October. The finalised date will be updated in due course.

Based on the framework set out by the recent Tripartite Advisory on Managing Workplace Harassment, which recommends that all companies train their staff in this area, this workshop on Managing Workplace Harassment and Being an Empathetic Manager will help managers to understand the fundamentals of recognising and avoiding workplace harassment – including sexual harassment and corporate bullying.

 

Interactive in nature, this workshop will give participants an understanding and awareness of harassment, including learning to recognise and respond to it on an individual and organisational level. They will learn to set boundaries in an assertive yet diplomatic manner should they experience harassment, and to avoid behaviour which may be construed as harassment.

The workshop will also equip managers with the knowledge of how to handle a complaint through fair, sensitive investigations, including providing tools and techniques for dealing with incidents of workplace harassment calmly and empathetically. By developing nurturing, compassionate and effective managers in your organisation, you can create supportive working environments where employees feel that their safety and concerns are valued.

Rewire: A Radical Approach to Tackling Diversity and Difference  takes a fresh look at the issue of equality, diversity and inclusion at work. It critiques current thinking and practices that are responsible for slow progress, while presenting a new, holistic and tactical perspective that leverages what we know about influencing and changing people’s mind-sets.

For sustainable positive change, we need to focus not only on monitoring policies and metrics, but on overcoming unconscious bias and creating a culture of openness, empathy and inclusion – which in turn enables corporate strategy and drives innovation.

This workshop will introduce a structured, six step approach to culture change. It will focus on the role of imagination and how we can shift mindset through the use of positive intentional communication in order to instigate positive change at an individual, organizational and social level.
