Cross-Cultural Management and Ministry, A toolkit to help you and your organization improve cross-cultural effectiveness,
This course provides a toolkit for those working in cross-cultural environments. Topics include: cultural intelligence, ethnic identity, social class, cultural dimensions, indigenous leadership development, organizational culture and organizational cross-cultural assessment and strategic planning. The course centers around a final project where you will develop: 1) a personal cross-cultural leadership growth plan, 2) a cross-cultural organizational assessment, and 3) a cross-cultural strategic plan for your organization.
The goal of this course is for students to develop a plan for their own cross-cultural growth as well as their organization’s cross-cultural growth. The intent is that this free course will provide the theories and cultural assessments needed for students to have a clear understanding of where they stand personally and as part of an organization, and from there to develop strategies to serve as bridge-builders.
