CLIC: Inter-Communication: The Melting Pot Mystery: Navigating International Cambridge
New

Wed 28 Feb 2024

Description

Have you ever struggled with other students' or colleagues' styles of working? Have you wondered why some people seem to be more direct than others, some don’t seem to be interested in socialising, or perhaps others are more relaxed about deadlines? Culture, and not only the national aspect of it, plays a significant role in how we learn to communicate and collaborate. Adjusting to cultural communication norms is more about shared values and expectations than speaking the same language. It requires a specific set of awareness, attitudes, and skills.

Join our workshop to:

  • Discuss cultural preferences for working.
  • Develop self-awareness of your working preferences.
  • Learn strategies for developing the right skills that will help you develop cultural intelligence.

This is not a webinar. This is an interactive workshop and you will be expected to contribute to the session.

To participate you must have your webcam switched on.

Target audience

This workshop is aimed towards participants in the field of Engineering.
