On-Line Workshop: Cultural Compass
A Tool for Navigating Cultural Subtleties Using Geert Hofstede’s 6 Cultural Dimensions

By Luise Schnelting

On-line 28 October 2020

Do you currently work or live in a culturally diverse group?

Then you will find our conversation useful. In 90 minutes, we will cover the six main cultural dimensions suggested by Geert Hofstede. We will discuss country variations – and then you’ll get a chance to practice what you’ve learned.

In this workshop, we aim to understand cultural contexts by paying attention to each characteristic and the related tools. Great news: every participant will be able to share his or her experience. Understanding a culture’s fundamental principles can help you properly navigate interactions with people in that society. Even better: With the right approach, you can connect more easily with people from different cultural backgrounds.

In short, based on Geert Hofstede’s Cultural Compass, you will…

  • Learn about the six main cultural dimensions.
  • Find out how these cultural dimensions vary from country to country.
  • See how you can apply them in your daily life.

At the end of this workshop, you will get a better understanding of cultural subtleties, and will therefore be able to connect more easily with people from different cultural backgrounds.

Want to hear more? Sign up today. We look forward to having a culturally enriching and intellectually interesting conversation with you.
