The Four Key Competencies for Engaging Confidently with Other Cultures


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.

Join experts Dr. Colleen Kelley and Dr. Judith Meyers, as they teach the four competencies that are critical to cross-cultural adaptability. They will also examine how to use them as a springboard to self-awareness and cross-cultural success.
