Workshop: THE INTERNATIONAL WORKPLACE IN DENMARK

Cultural training for all AAU staff, guests and PhD students.

Time

08.11.2019 kl. 14.00 - 17.00

Description

ABOUT THE COURSE

Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is key in establishing positive work relationships, collaborating in teams, assisting staff and supervising students across cultures. A lack of CQ can lead to low performance, conflicts, frustration and mistrust in culturally diverse groups. While basic social skills and respect for other cultures can be enough, cultural intelligence is especially important in stressful situations.

This course provides you with useful knowledge and tools to help you react and adapt effectively in a variety of culturally diverse settings.

 

TARGET GROUP

This course is FREE and EXCLUSIVE to Aalborg University’s (Danish and international) VIP (scientific staff), TAP (administrative staff), guest researchers and PhD students working in- or/and with culturally diverse groups.
