Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Susan Gimm, CEO and Executive Coach, Korea Coaching Center; Ken Gimm, Chairman, Korea Leadership Center; and Wei Wang, Director of International Relations, ASTD

As organizations become more global, they come across more challenges in intercultural communication. Naturally, a wide range of communication problems emerge within an organization, as individuals come together from different religious, social, ethnic, and educational backgrounds. Unfortunately, a lack of intercultural communication skills deters collaboration amongst these individuals.

In this webcast, you will hear how intercultural communication skills training can be applied to people from different countries and cultures. You will learn how to act, communicate, and change your paradigm for synergistic cooperation. You will learn to identify and assess intercultural communication problems in your organization and develop the insight to apply best practices that have been proven in Asia. You will learn:

  • culture and language are not the main barriers
  • common causes of dysfunctional intercultural communication
  • transformational skills that enable you to leap over intercultural boundaries
  • best practices in developing cultural intelligence.
