Working Across Cultures

Alternative Description

Working Across Cultures: You will learn about cultural preferences towards building relationships and socialising, leadership and management styles, performance and feedback, risk and failure, schedules and punctuality and how to build trust remotely. One of the key outcomes is to help you communicate more effectively across cultures. You’ll practice telephone role-plays, email writing skills and using ‘Global’ English for communicating with non-native speakers.

"We really enjoyed the workshop. To be honest I was a little bit sceptical beforehand but any thoughts like that were very quickly banished, and certain subjects were discussed that I hadn’t even thought about. We both got a lot out of the day and would highly recommend to everyone."
