How should we communicate in a world where differences in perspective, experience, job function, culture, gender, age and a myriad of other factors often lead to distrust, misunderstanding and reduced productivity? We can all benefit from learning the tools of dialogue - how to communicate across differences in a way that is both respectful and effective. This is a 4-program series.
Part 1: Communicating in a Diverse World
Learn the skills of dialogue with this overview module. This program answers what dialogue is and when to use it with a contrasting debate and dialogue.
Part 2: Dialogue for Cultural Understanding
Apply the skills of dialogue outlined in Program 1 to challenges faced in culturally diverse work environments. See a dramatization that demonstrates how dialogue can be used to open communication, uncover hidden assumptions, break down stereotypes and facilitate more productive relationships.
Part 3: Dialogue between Genders
A dramatized dialogue shows us how the skills we learned in Program 1 can be used to overcome misunderstandings, break down gender stereotypes and improve communications between men and women at work.
Part 4: Dialogue among Generations
A team dialogue demonstrates how the skills of dialogue can be used to bridge the personal and professional style differences that exist between employees of different ages.
