“The story-based training approach used in GlobalPeople@Work is very appealing and helpful for appreciating the impact of culture on day-to-day encounters in the professional world.”

Global People@Work is a highly engaging, case-based blended e-learning course for succeeding in the global workplace. It helps leaders, individual employees and members of diverse teams acquire Global Fitness – the personal qualities, knowledge and skills they need to function well in today’s uncertain world.

GlobalPeople@Work comprises three distinct self-learning e-Modules.

Module 1, Seeing Culture@Work helps participants understand how culture influences behaviour and communication practice in the workplace, explore the roots and impact of cultural differences, examine their own behaviour and test their own cultural assumptions, preferences and biases in the work context. (Approximate completion time: 1.5 hours*)

Module 2, Diverse Teams@Work focuses on how cultural differences may impact teamwork and communication in diverse and remote teams and guides participants through a range of strategies for successfully managing problems and increasing collaboration effectiveness in their own team settings. (Approximate completion time: 2.5 hours*)

Module 3, Global Leaders@Work is aimed at those who have leadership responsibilities across cultural boundaries and those who aspire to lead in such contexts. The module helps participants understand how culture influences the practice, perception and impact of leadership in the global context, reflect on their own and others’ leadership practice and learn strategies for flexing their leadership style to achieve better results. (Approximate completion time: 2.5 hours*)

* Exact completion time will vary according to people’s level of familiarity and extent of engagement with the activities.

Course design

Each module is built around one or more authentic case studies and incidents that illustrate the challenges that can occur when working in diverse contexts. The issues are further explored through interactive tasks and activities that explain and illustrate the impact of cultural factors and recommend ways of handling them. Explanations of key concepts are provided by an expert in the field. Each module ends with a quiz to check progress and understanding.

As our client, you can choose to enhance the potential of each module by opting for a follow-up, highly interactive webinar, where all participants have the opportunity to come together, explore their learning, answer their questions and, most importantly, practise new intercultural skills through practical group exercises in a supported environment.
