Cultural Impact / MDBC: How to Understand Your Indian Colleagues Better

November 23, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Dear MDBC members,

Cultural Impact, in collaboration with MDBC, CCIFM, and MGCC, is pleased to invite you to the upcoming In Conversation #5 – “How to Understand your Indian Colleagues Better” webinar on Tuesday, 23 November.

From the food we eat to the language we speak, the influence of Indian culture on the Malaysian culture we all know and love is undeniable.  The Indian people, however, still seem to be an enigma to many despite their long history here in Malaysia.

In this talk, we will be joined by Ravinder Kaur (Head of Human Resources, Carrier Singapore / Malaysia / Brunei), Dr Marcella Lucas (Innovation, Strategy & Leadership Consulting), and Raj Kumar Paramanathan (Founding Partner, CnetAsia (Malaysia / Thailand)) who will give us insights on Indians in the workplace, as well as exploring what mindset, skills, and attitude one needs to display to collaborate effectively with Indian colleagues.

Date:  Tuesday, 23 November
Time:  16:00 – 17:30 hrs
Platform: Zoom

This conversation will benefit anyone working in Malaysia, especially those with Indian colleagues.

Our objective is to:
· Provide some insights into Indian culture in Malaysia
· Offer tips to open meaningful conversations with Indian colleagues and deepen cultural understanding
· Understand the specific Indian cultural traits that have an impact in the workplace and give the social and historical background behind these behaviors
· Discuss the values, traits, and behaviors that are shared among colleagues of Indian descent in the Malaysian workplace

As a bonus, we will be providing The Cultural Impact Scan© to MDBC members for free. You are encouraged to complete the assessment prior to the webinar as your report on your personal preferences will help you relate to the session better.
