Awareness of our own cultural identities and experiences is the first step to becoming more effective cross-culturally. The Cross Cultural Adaptability Inventory™ (CCAI) workshop is a powerful experience that helps participants identify their personal areas of cross-cultural competency and provides examples of ways to improve them.

Participants Will Learn

  • How to define culture and one’s cultural identity
  • The four competencies associated with cross-cultural effectiveness
  • Methods to assess cross-cultural competence
  • A common vocabulary that allows for self-improvement, continued growth and perspective-taking in cross-cultural situations
