Crossing intercultural & interdisciplinary boundaries; learning to collaborate
Collaboration in multicultural and multidisciplinary teams can sometimes be challenging. Hence the Autumn Challenge will include special attention to intercultural competences.
DEALING EFFECTIVELY WITH (CULTURAL) DIFFERENCES
During this online session of 2,5 hours you will become more aware of your own cultural background and the influence on your own behaviour and, often unconscious, perception and bias. Concepts as culture, diversity and inclusion will be explored. You will receive tips on what is needed to create an inclusive environment within a diverse team. In addition, you will become more aware about differences in how we communicate, the various communication styles and how to deal effectively with these differences.
At the end of the session you will be more aware of the complexity of culture, diversity and working inclusively and will also know more about the effects of your own culture and personal characteristics on your own communication and behaviour. All of these elements are of high importance to fulfil an assignment together successfully and with joy!
