What is Cultural awareness coaching
Cultural Awareness becomes central when we have to interact with people from other cultures. People see, interpret and evaluate things in different ways. What is considered appropriate in one culture is frequently inappropriate in another one. Misunderstandings arise frequently.
Becoming aware of our cultural dynamics is difficult because culture is not conscious to us. From the day we are born we have learned to see and do things at an unconscious level. Our experiences, values and cultural background lead us to see and do things in a certain way. Sometimes we have to step outside of our cultural boundaries in order to realise the impact that our culture has on our behaviour. It is very helpful to gather feedback from foreign colleagues on our behaviour to get more clarity on our cultural traits.
During the training, we will tackle the following topics:
- What is cultural awareness?
- Cultural values and attitudes (time, space, group dynamics, authority, tasks, relationships)
- Communication styles
- Cross-cultural management skills
- Working together across cultures
- Developing cultural awareness
- Language issues
- Tips and strategies for specific countries
