Understanding the other by understanding our self – examining culture and identity

  • Are you someone who finds themselves frustrated when dealing with or interacting with others?
  • Are you simply looking for a little more peace at work?

About the workshop

During this workshop Participants will examine why we all do what we do, specifically why we have misunderstandings with others, all while increasing their international business acumen.

This explicitly will be done through investigating how people make meaning, how we define culture, what culture conditioning is and how it affects us, and finally how and why we identify as we do. When we better understand our own actions and decision-making, we have better insight into why others do what they do, which can lead to an increased ability to make good judgement and take quick decisions in life.

 

By participating you will be able to…

  • Understand the effect of culture on perception and meaning (to better appreciate why we do what we do).
  • Explore cultural conditioning and how it affects us personally and professionally (which leads to why we have misunderstandings).
  • Query how they and others make meaning, thus improving their personal and professional connections (increasing their international business acumen).

 

Together we will be examining:

  • Perception – how people make meaning, to better appreciate why we do what we do
  • Broad culture – How we define culture,
  • Culture conditioning – What it is and how it affects us, which leads to why we have misunderstandings
  • The self – How and why identify as we do – when we better understand our own actions and decision-making, we have better insight into why others do what we do, which can lead to an increased ability to make good judgements and take quick decisions in life.
