Cultural Compass Training is like none you've ever experienced.
It's just the tip of the iceberg.
Cultural Compass training will teach you to look below the surface to see how deep you can make a cultural connection. We have more than 25 years of experience building bridges to close the cultural gap. Through a wide offering of programs, Arts events and great partners we help others better utilize cultural assets to live and work together more harmoniously. We embrace the challenges of integrating cultural values and skills into a team or organization enabling it to understand and assess the resources available from the group which will then put forth efforts, resources & profits in synergy.
Cultural Compass starts from a completely different place than other diversity and cross-cultural communications programs. We believe that people are more alike than different, so we help build that bridge of trust for participants to feel safe and open up and find that common ground. It is much like intensive mediation in that there is an experienced guide who works to find a win-win outcome. Because The Cultural Compass Institute is a civil society organization & social enterprise, we go even further to help you create a win-win-win outcome - that's a win for each partner as well as a social win!
This training offers framing and re-framing skills - new ways of looking at issues and elements from multiple perspectives. It will go beyond that deep into the structures of assumptions. Trainings are highly inter-active and take your organization dynamics, mission and workforce into careful consideration to customize a course especially for you.
Discover the 'Missing Link'
This program was created to bridge the gap in understanding among people of one culture or social strata and how they interact with those in another. Time and again we discover that synergies are not being used as engines to achieve organizational aims and harmony among all stakeholders. Cultural Compass busts the myths of differences and brings you around to the fact of equalities. Use your new skills to add polish or increase efficiency. All will certainly gain a deeper sensitivity to similarities more than differences - and there is the magic! Your new navigation tools will carry you not only through this project, but far beyond.
Get an Inside-Outside View
Understanding a partner's decision-making process can be a tremendously valuable tool. Imagine if you will, being able with some degree of certainty, to know how a person or business will decide on a given matter . . . You will because you will have a 360 Degree View of the Culture and evaluated core values, both your own and each others.
