This program examines the concept of communication and the challenge of communicating with people who have different cultural backgrounds and experiences. We look at communication in relation to gender as well as culture and explore how various communication issues can affect productivity in the workplace.
Participants consider what communication is and what it's not, what makes it work and what hinders it. They can evaluate aspects of their own communication techniques and discover what they need to work on to be a better communicator. The workshop offers effective strategies and tips for successful cross cultural and cross gender communication in the workplace and in our culturally diverse society.
