In any organization, communicating and collaborating effectively are paramount. It’s important that, as professionals and leaders, we make intentional and strategic efforts to bridge differences in communication and the way individuals work together as a team.

Part of that process is recognizing that our culture influences how we communicate and behave at work, as well as our perceptions of behaviors that differ from our own. By building awareness of our own default communication and work style, we can learn when and how to adapt behavior to collaborate more effectively with others, more efficiently achieve tasks and execute well on projects, build and maintain trust, and enhance overall team performance and productivity.

This workshop is designed to equip you with practical tools that will:
• Enhance your awareness of your own and others’ communication and work style preferences;
• Understand how culture influences these preferences and shape our perceptions of others’ behaviors that differ from our own;
• Explore how are brains are wired to respond to cultural difference and can cause cultural bias in the workplace;
• Identify how differences in communication and workstyle preferences play out in a workplace context and how they can cause inefficiencies;
• Gain strategies and skills to know when and how to adapt behavior in ways that further collaboration, inclusion, efficiency and productivity.
