Culturally Intelligent & Inclusive Communication for Professionals

3 Hours

Communicating in ways that support diversity and inclusion is a valuable core competence in today’s workplace. Effective communication is the exchange of shared meaning. But with less than ten per cent of our communication being verbal, we rely on our tone, body language and other non-verbal cues to convey our message. The way we communicate is also shaped by our culture and social identities which can create unintentional barriers if left unexamined. Communicating in culturally intelligent and inclusive ways helps build trust and rapport with clients, improve working relationships with teammates, and enhance supervision and management style.

In this full day workshop participants will:

  • Gain tools for effective communication across perceived differences
  • Identify personal blind spots that may stand in the way of effective communication
  • Develop a foundational understanding of equity, diversity and inclusion in the workplace
  • Learn and practice inclusive body language
Harmony@Work offers deeper intercultural awareness to improve your employees’ ability to provide inclusive services.
