Crowne Plaza | Leveraging Cultural Diversity

About the Event

Vedatya a workshop on Leveraging Cultural Diversity at Crowne Plaza Today Gurgaon.

The key focus of the session was learning to recognise and understand cultural dimension in the context of business performance.

The invigorating discussion during the workshop had the participants appreciating the fact that cultural diversity exists, but is not essentially leveraged. The difference between being a part of a 'group' and 'team' was also deliberated upon, and at the end of the session participants arrived at the conclusion that performing teams are essentially an output of the 'cultural orientation'.
