Topic: Cultural Bias

Course description:

In order to manage people and business globally, it is important to recognize and work on latent cultural biases. It is very common to see employees, clients, suppliers to react based on cultural stereotypes when working globally.  “Bias refers to the stereotypes, both negative and positive, that exists in our subconscious and affects our behavior”. Bias can lead to negative interactions among people, a toxic culture, and consequently unsuccessful businesses.  Years of research has shown that a diverse workplace is more innovative and thus performs better than those that aren't.

Unconscious biases are social stereotypes about certain cultures and groups of people which you are not aware: the way you feel, think and react towards certain cultures and people.  You will be speechless to recognize how biased we can be and how our concepts about people and culture can rule our behaviors when interacting and managing people globally.  Recognizing and working on cultural biases will boost your business, team, relationships, and career.

Once you recognize your potential biases or your team’s potential biases, you can start replacing misrepresentation to a more appropriate way of seeing cultures and reacting to them. It will lead you to be more social effective in your interactions accelerating your professional career in a global level.

  • Lead people more effectively
