10:00
Have you ever struggled with styles of communication of others (peers, lecturers, supervisors, staff), wondered why some people seem to use more formal language, or be more direct than others? Culture plays a big part in how we communicate, and adjusting to the cultural communication norms means more than learning a foreign language.

In Cambridge's diverse and multicultural environment, we constantly communicate with people whose cultural communication norms differ from ours, whether you are a native English speaker from the United Kingdom, a native English speaker from elsewhere in the world, or have learnt English as a foreign language.

In order to avoid misunderstanding, or worse still, conflict, brought on by variations in communication styles we need to learn to make allowances for the cultural differences in how people communicate. To better understand cross-cultural complexity and increase your awareness of cultural identities, come to a session on intercultural communication to increase your cultural awareness and give you a better understanding of how culture may affect your everyday communication.

We are pleased to welcome Laura Roper and Susanne Clarke from Bournemouth University who will be visiting to deliver our next continuous improvement seminar

Discover the transformative power of the KIND AP-3 Framework in our upcoming fun, and engaging workshop! Immerse yourself in an interactive session where we explore and discuss how this innovative framework seamlessly integrates traditional lean methodologies with appreciative inquiry and positive organisational scholarship.

Appreciative Inquiry and Positive Organisational Scholarship bring numerous benefits to organisations. Appreciative Inquiry fosters a positive workplace culture by focusing on strengths, fostering collaboration, and inspiring innovation. It encourages a shift from problem-solving to appreciating and amplifying what is already working well. On the other hand, Positive Organisational Scholarship emphasises the study of positive aspects within an organisation, promoting resilience, well-being, and exceptional performance. Together, Appreciative Inquiry and Positive Organisational Scholarship contribute to increased employee engagement, improved organisational morale, and enhanced problem-solving capacities, ultimately fostering a more vibrant and thriving work environment that drives sustainable success.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to see Laura and Susanne show how we can extend Lean principles to cater specifically to Higher Education whilst you enhance your professional skills and broaden your perspective.
