Working internationally can be challenging when you are met with different ways of working and thinking from clients and colleagues who come from different cultural backgrounds. Understanding the theories behind these cultural differences can help you navigate the workplace with a greater knowledge and understanding of others and perhaps even more importantly, yourself.
Anna Robb conducts an online 90 minute seminar on Cross Cultural Communication in Entertainment.
In this session you will learn about:
- Hofstede’s Cultural Dimension Theories
- Cultural Motivations and The Globe Study Leadership Styles
- Non-Verbal communication
- How understanding the above theories can be applied practically in the entertainment sector as you work and/or tour globally.
