THE CONTENT OF THE PROGRAMME (DETAILS)

E-learning on Culture

This e-learning will help you explore the impact of culture on working effectively and confidently despite differences in culture and experience. In addition, you will gain a better understanding of Hofstede’s model, a practical and scientifically-based tool for intercultural management. It is the first step to understanding and managing individual and collective behaviours in an intercultural context.

Team Culture Scan

The Team Culture scan is an online tool designed to measure the culture of a group (for teams of up to 30 members) through an online questionnaire. After members of the team have completed the survey, you will receive a report with your actual scores on the dimensions on Organisational Culture and 6 statements per dimension describing your culture. This allows you to assess whether the culture supports the goals of the team/organisation or whether you’d like to change it.  

The Culture Compass survey

The Hofstede Insights Culture Compass™ helps you understand the impact of your own cultural value preferences and behaviour  while working with people from selected countries, and recognise how your own, personal background impacts the way you see and resolve problems in the workplace.

I really enjoyed the Ambassador {programme} the course itself was intense and very practical. The lecturer really knew what he was talking about. After the course, I pointed out the issues I knew we had to my team and explained the report to them, and what we could do about it. This got me so much interested in Culture I signed up to the certification course.
