Communicating and Coaching across Cultures
Managers and their staff, businessmen/women, journalists, diplomats, MPs, humanitarian workers… are all increasingly confronted with people from other cultures. As a result, management, organization and communication difficulties may arise, sometimes leading to misunderstandings or even communication breakdown. It has become essential to develop an understanding of cultural issues and the way they can impact efficiency when running meetings, leading teams, negotiating and organizing work on an international level.
If you want to know how to improve the way you deal with people from other cultures, whatever your circumstances, come and join us for this presentation by Magda Fahsi.
You’ll learn how culture influences perception, actions, behaviour; and how cultural preferences might affect one’s interactions. You’ll also get a first glimpse on how to increase your cultural awareness & adaptability.
Our Speaker: Magda Fahsi
Magda Fahsi is a true citizen of the world: born in Belgium from a Belgian Flemish mother and a Moroccan father, she lived for several years in Morocco. Faced with parents who found it difficult to reconcile their cultural differences, she very early developed a deep sense of belonging to humankind. Eager to understand how the world works, she travelled extensively, including in the Arab world and Latin-America; she worked as a volunteer and a humanitarian in the Middle-East. After studying a PhD in International Relations and Diplomacy, she worked as a journalist and a teacher/trainer.
Participation & how to reserve
She later trained as an intercultural and personal coach. She is certified in the use of the Cultural Orientations Framework assessment tool. Additionally, she studied the functioning of the human brain. Her conferences and seminars are a unique blend of her knowledge of world affairs, culture and the human brain and the insight she gained from her own experience.
The workshop is open to members and non-members.
Drinks and some finger food will be provided. catering by La table d'Arthur, Etterbeek http://www.latabledarthur.com/
