Webinar - Cultural Communication Parameters inspired by Erin Meyer

Event Details

Our thought-leader inspiration for this program is Erin Meyer, author of the book, The Culture Map. (2014) She won’t be physically present, but we will be learning from her ideas. I find her concepts and poignant stories about learnings in navigating cultural differences to be fascinating and insightful. I think these will be immensely helpful as we at RUPI continue to welcome participants from Mexico, Finland, Spain, Canada, Australia, England, Ireland, Japan…and more.

Erin identifies (backed by research) eight scales, or I would call them cultural communication parameters that map and can create invisible divides when we don’t understand them. Our own cultural ways and habits are so ingrained in us as we grow up that they are unseen by us, like the saying: “the fish are the last to know water.” These eight parameters that we use at work are: Communicating, Evaluating, Persuading, Leading, Deciding, Trusting, Disagreeing, Scheduling.

Join us for an hour of reflecting on these scales and exploring questions like how does personality fit onto the culture map, and what can we do to make understanding and sensitivity to cultural differences workable and even enriching.
