Global Competency for Business – Developing Cross-Cultural Strategies

Cleveland Council on World Affairs

May 26 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Do you work on a global team? Do you interact with international clients or partners? Are you interested in working more effectively with people from other cultures?


Join the Cleveland Council on World Affairs for a two-part workshop series to develop skills for working more effectively internationally.

Learning outcomes from the series include:

    • Learn how to communicate more effectively across cultures
    • Understand one’s own cultural perspective
    • Identify and gain awareness of underlying dimensions of culture
    • Recognize the importance of approaching cultural interactions with an open mind

The workshop series is designed to build participants’ global competency. The workshops are intentionally interactive and self-reflective. We believe that self-awareness and a willingness to accept diversity and unfamiliarity are the foundation of truly successful cross-cultural interactions over the long-term. Our training is rooted in this philosophical approach, and it combines interactive and experiential content to invite participants to approach cultural interactions with a more open mind, while offering well-researched information about cultural nuances.


The workshop series will take place over Zoom.

Training dates:

    • May 19 from 12:00-1:30pm: Understanding Cultural Norms
    • May 26 from 12:00-1:30pm: Developing Cross-Cultural Strategies

Participation in both workshops is recommended.

Admission: $250 per person. Registration is required.

Registration: This event will be held as a Zoom meeting. Please register below.
