Learning Bites – Cultural Awareness

Cultural awareness starts by recognising that we sit at the centre of our universe and this represents the ‘norm’. As we move out of our comfort zone we begin to encounter difference and this grows the more we are exposed to other cultures in today’s fast moving world.

We need to be aware of this dynamic, the impact it has on our perceptions, and how we should welcome and harness these differences to encourage better understanding and collaboration.

The great thing about discovering other cultures is that as you move further out you can look back at and learn about yourself.

Course Objectives

The objectives of this programme are:

  • To increase your cultural sensitivity
  • To give you the tools to work successfully across cultures
  • To learn more about your own culture

The course is structured around six big cultural theories from internationally recognized experts who are consistently referenced when cultural awareness is discussed. These are explained, examples given and brief case studies provided to enable delegates to translate the theory into ‘real world’ practice. People with different cultural influences may well behave and act differently, problems arise when we are unable to be flexible and don’t try and understand what those differences represent.

What our clients say about us – Berendsen

We had already put in place LEAD Development Centres for our senior leader group, and it was very important to introduce Centres that would work for our large population of Plant Managers across Europe. Cegos have been excellent partners in helping us get the design right, and then in the delivery of lively, action learning based programmes. I have greatly enjoyed seeing our managers have ‘light bulb’ moments!
