Class size is limited to 24.While many of the examples we will explore concern employees from other countries, the skills and awareness involved are equally relevant to culturally-based differences among AmericansThis workshop will introduce participants to key dimensions of culture that are critical in the workplace, including approaches to hierarchy, team work, uncertainty and gender.
