Cultural Awareness Training

Cultural Awareness Training is more important than ever when when technology and increased mobility means that even if we don’t move the world comes to us!

Do you work with people from different cultural backgrounds?
Cultural misunderstandings prevent people from collaborating effectively even when they are speaking the same language!

Working with clients or partners from other cultures?
Planning, meetings, negotiating, managing, conflict, appraisals are all influenced by culture!

People work better together when they understand each other, when they understand different cultural perspectives. How to see it from the other cultural side.

Cultural awareness training explores how culture shapes how we act and behave and influences our expectations when communicating with people from other cultures. Cultural awareness training provides the knowledge, skills and expertise for anyone working with EU project partners, international staff, colleagues or clients to manage how cultures differ in how they work, plan and make decisions.

Using theory, practical examples and activities the training explores:

  • Invisible/ visible aspects of culture
