Working with colleagues and service users from other countries or cultures can be challenging if experienced without proper understanding. They may approach work tasks totally differently and have alternative priorities. Body language can differ and common use phrases can get misunderstood. This course raises awareness and encourages delegates to celebrate the differences which can unite rather than divide us all.
