What will I learn?

In this session, you will learn what a cultural pattern is, how it differs from a stereotype, and how you can use this information to build powerful and effective cross-cultural relationships.  Learning how to recognize a cultural pattern helps you to better understand others, as well as yourself.  We will also explore the important topic of values and how these can trigger emotions that risk derailing important conversations and relationships.

Topics Covered:

• Discerning different cultural lenses using “dimensions of culture”
• Understanding values, emotional triggers and their importance
• Looking at the difference between a cultural pattern and a stereotype
• Exploring the history of race, ethnicity, and gender differences
• Practicing effective, conscious use of cultural patterns

Disciplines Learned:

• Stereotype vs. Cultural Pattern
• Seeking the Underlying Value
• Behavioral Interpretation of Values
• Cross-Cultural Trust
• Tolerance for Ambiguity
