Build Cultural Diversity Skills and Understand Others With More Clarity

This Workshop employs tools, case study, role-play, and diversity activities to help participants build awareness of unconscious biases that can form stereotypes leading to a lack of inclusion in the workplace and that can cause discord with clients. Participants learn what drives their own common sense and to develop a new “cultural sense” helping them to see others more clearly.

Fathom’s cultural competence skills workshop is critical for managing cultural diversity and enables your organization and your leaders to meet the demands and expectations of an increasingly global workplace. The course helps build awareness leading to more effective collaboration and better decisions for your organization. The materials used are a result of the collaboration of acclaimed intercultural experts from countries across the globe.

Clients can select specific cultural modules which best represent their current workplace and challenges. Case studies and role-play are completed for targeted cultures.

Participants in this workshop learn to implement a model for navigating cross-cultural communication more effectively and to develop practical strategies for developing workplace and client sensitivity.

Thanks for walking us through the methodology. It was a good session and I feel I still have a lot to read and learn from the materials I brought back from the session last week. It’ll keep me busy!

As an international corporation made up of a widely diverse workforce, we had need for a solid and thorough Cultural Diversity Workshop. Fathom Corporate Training in Austin did a remarkable job.

Learning to use the behaviors and values template helped me to understand others actions more clearly. This has enabled me to avoid conflict and develop a better basis for working relationships.

I really gained a better understanding of our multi-cultural workplace and can now see where I could have facilitated a different and better outcome in many situations. I only wish I had taken this course years ago.
