Developing an international mindset and preparing for the multi cultural world, with Sally Anne Gaunt | Monday June 20, 2011

Australia has emerged in recent decades as an integral part of a thriving international community especially with China and the entire Asia Pacific region. Whilst we have significant trade and commercial dealings in our region, can we also expect that communication flows easily in our interaction with these very different cultures?

This session is designed to explore how versatile and flexible a person can be when asked to work with someone whose values are very different from theirs. Our culture is a key influencing factor in shaping our values, so it’s not surprising that our internal belief system becomes challenged when travelling or simply working with people from other parts of the world.

If not addressed, people often end up blaming the other party for inappropriate behavior, when in reality they have failed to convey the necessary context, hence breaking vital relationships.

In this session we will act out simple strategies to ensure you build bridges rather than barriers when dealing with people from a different culture. Finally, we will investigate basic culture differences that, if not understood, can easily divert even an experienced facilitator off track.
