CROSSCULTURAL AND VIRTUAL COOPERATION

CROSSCULTURAL AND VIRTUAL COOPERATION

During 4 x 2 ½ hour virtual workshops, you will gain new evidence-based knowledge about cross-cultural and virtual collaboration.
You will also get a chance to increase your CQ and develop personal strategies to optimize the virtual collaboration with global partners. You will train new competences to assure that the new knowledge transfers into competences and into cultural intelligent behaviour. The virtual workshops are involving and interactive and we will use tools and apps that you can go out and use yourself to create dynamic and inclusive virtual meetings. 

You will receive a certificate after having concluded this course.
