Going Beyond Diversity: Building Inclusive Workplaces
by Gulnar Vaswani | Best Foot Forward International

As organizations bring cultures together in the workplace, there is often an imbalance between creating a cohesive workforce identity and respecting differences. When it comes to 21st Century leadership in culturally diverse, change- filled, and complex contexts, our ability to navigate these intercultural differences is key.

Globalization has catapulted people from different cultures into shared physical and virtual spaces in homes, relationships, schools, neighborhoods, and workplaces, resulting in new forms of misunderstanding and conflict. Evidence suggests that the ways we resolve conflict differ greatly across cultures and social groups. Whatever issue sparks the conflict, the methods we use for resolving it frequently make the problem even more problematic. Organizations value the idea of collaboration, but aspiration and reality are often far apart. Having people work together across physical, psychological, and cultural distance presents both challenges and opportunities to facilitate human connection and understanding.

Think of this workshop as intercultural strength training with fast-paced core exercises and activities that are designed to improve intercultural effectiveness and support the characteristics of cultural agility. Topics will include emotional intelligence, cultural patterns of thinking and behavior, styles of communication, assumption and values, and cultural adaptability.

We will examine the impact of intercultural communication on our perceptions, attitudes, and values; how we judge others by the way they speak or behave; how we each can contribute to better understanding and reduced conflict among people of different cultures.

Above all, you will have the opportunity to examine your own deep cultural programming and identify strategies to enhance intercultural effectiveness and truly embed inclusion within your organization.

Understand and identify cultural patterns in thinking and behavior
  • Recognize and adapt to different styles of communication
  • Leverage awareness of how your personal communication style impacts others
  • Improve ability to self-advocate, communicate preferences, and negotiate terms
  • Explore culturally-appropriate tools to resolve and mediate difficult conversations
  • Learn how to build rapport instantly with new colleagues, friends, and community
  • Harness the power of non-verbal communication, body language and positive psychology
