MDBC Education 360: Reskilling Team Management & Efficiency II

September 3, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Dear MDBC members,

Please note: This event has passed.  
Thank you to those who attended this event.


Together with MDBC member Cultural Impact and our colleagues from the Malaysian French Chamber of Commerce (CCIFM), we are organizing another MDBC Education 360 event on Reskilling Team Management & Efficiency II on Monday, 3 September from 9:00 – 13:00 hrs.

HRDF Claimable!

Multicultural teams offer a number of advantages, including a deeper and wider variety of knowledge, and culturally sensitive customer service.  In order to maximize on these benefits however, one needs to ensure that the problems which can arise from multicultural teams are first neutralized.  With increased regional and global market participation, developing intercultural competencies has become a necessary skill.  Leaders now need to be able to engage and influence employees from different cultural backgrounds so join us at this workshop to learn effective, practical tools on adapting faster to multicultural teams.

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
* Comprehend the impact of multiple cultures in the workplace.
* Use a proven competence – based framework: Intercultural Readiness, to build intercultural competencies.
* Decipher different cultural expectations and adapt their behaviors accordingly
* Optimize communication within a Malaysian context
* Effectively handle challenging situations

Who should attend?
Expats, Malaysian employees who work in multicultural environments, team leaders, and managers.
