The general objective for this module is to facilitate a better understanding amongst the Chinese working in Nordic companies in China of the importance of being assertive and accountable in the workplace.

Module 2: Working Effectively: Focus on Nordic Cultures

Facilitator: Emily Cai

Time: September 24th 2020, 9.00 - 12.30

Venue: Radisson Blu Hotel Shanghai New World

All cultural understanding begins with self-understanding. Basic and off-course you might think, but how competent are you actually in explaining what you define as "normal and typical"? And how often do you explore the cultural self-understanding of your Nordic colleagues? on etc. when working with people from the Nordic cultures?

In this dynamic and interactive global mindset workshop we raise the awareness of your cultural self-understanding, give you valid knowledge about the Nordic culture, leadership and working style as well as give you input on how to use very practical and easy-to-use cultural tools to improve your cross-cultural communication and collaboration.

Aristotle said "Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom". The better one can connect with him/herself, the better one can connect with others and with business. Self awareness is the foundation of authentic leadership. It allows leaders to lead by their value, strengths and talents. The journey starts with reflecting one's own life.

Through a half-day workshop, participants not only have an opportunity to review their core value and strengths but also work on their leadership brand and vision. Of all which will facilitate their continuous leadership development path.
