Build Your Cultural Intelligence

Participants will learn the four factors of cultural intelligence to enhance their capability to function effectively and inclusively when working with cultures different than their own. Participants will be expected to explore their capabilities and awareness related to how they think, feel and behave to improve their engagement in cross-cultural interactions.

Establishing a baseline related to their own Cultural Intelligence level, participants will identify tools and strategies to improve their results within their interactions and will define a plan for continued development and improvement of their own Cultural Intelligence.

This course will help employees of all levels work together to drive a healthier future. Cultural Intelligence will provide individuals with the knowledge and awareness to ensure we are building a strong culture of engagement, delivering exceptional patient care and fostering an environment for workplace excellence.


Generations in the Workplace

Participants will gain an understanding of generational preferences and tendencies around communication, motivation and learning styles for each of the four generations that currently make up our workforce.  Participants will also consider the impact that major life influencers have on each generation; while these influencer’s impact generational characteristics, participants will recognize the importance of understanding that each individual is unique and may or may not fully align with their generational categorization. Commonalities between generations will be identified as well as ways to better connect with, and adapt to, each other.

Impact of Perception

It’s important to understand the impact of perceptions and how they may affect our organization. Participants will gain an understanding and realize the power of challenging their own perceptions while understanding how to influence the perceptions of others. Participants will be encouraged to explore where perceptions and beliefs come from and how to increase personal awareness related to perception.

Participants will understand the importance of their own perceptions and the perceptions of others in order to strengthen their personal and professional relationships. Each participant will be provided tools to reframe perceptions and strengthen connections amongst each other.
