Description

Teamwork

The combinations of skill, expertise and experience in an effective team are infinite. What is often overlooked and rarely focused on are the strengths and weaknesses of teams on a cultural and heritage level especially in Canada. Focusing, understanding, and developing team members from authoritarian or egalitarian cultures can be the subtle difference between success and failure.

Dr. Lionel Laroche, Ph.D., P. Eng., a leading expert in the discipline of cultural diversity, examines and provides solutions to the challenges of teamwork in an ethnically varied work environment. From over 20+ years of practical and professional experience working with 20,000+ people all over the world, this workshop uses proven concepts of individualism to breakdown how culturally diverse teams should work together to achieve the highest results possible.

Participants of this workshop will take away valuable training that can be integrated immediately to enhance professional development and corporate goals.

Note: Please arrive to the workshop prepared with basic knowledge of Lionel’s materials. You can either read the first 3 Chapters of Lionel’s book: “Danger and Opportunity: Bridging Cultural Diversity for Competitive Advantage”, or watch Lionel’s videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEXekT5MteU&index=1&list=PLAmRYplYAcE5IuqM0LQJISyJX80aJgvRs

Optional: Participants may get together after the workshop for lunch to continue networking. BYOL (Buy Your Own Lunch). Location to be determined.
