Diversity can be both a big value to your team and a great challenge.
In everyday life, where we more and more often live or work with people from different countries and backgrounds, it is an important competence to notice and acknowledge the diversity of cultures and facilitate the work of such a team so that it is fruitful and gives joy.
Research shows that diverse teams perform better than homogeneous when diversity is seen and taken care of.
How to see and acknowledge these different aspects of diversity? What can be specifically done to take care of diversity in a group of people?
In this training we will reflect on different aspects of culture and diversity. We will raise awareness and look for ideas on how to manage diversity when working with groups.
This training covers:
- basic models and theories of intercultural communication
- raising self-reflection and self-awareness of diversity
- ideas for working with diverse teams and methods of facilitation
- elements of intercultural competence
You will experience:
- an interactive online session delivered by experienced facilitators
- a good balance between input and practice
- space for your questions and peer exchange
This training is for you if:
- you want to foster your intercultural competence
- you work in diverse teams and want to be more aware of different aspects of intercultural communication
- you facilitate group learning processes and look for methods that help diverse teams work together
