Dr. Renee Bhatti-Klug facilitates a workshop on Cultural Intelligence

BECOMING CULTURALLY INTELLIGENT

Research proves that Cultural Intelligence (CI) enhances people's communication and performance when they work with diverse individuals. Becoming Culturally Intelligent (BCI) guides participants in developing their CI to increase Cultural Openness, Cultural Awareness, and Cultural Responsiveness. Through the application of CITC’s research-based CI model, leaders and contributors alike learn how to demonstrate CI individually for organizational transformation. Interactive activities and guided conversations provide participants with opportunities for critical reflection to become more curious and empathetic in their daily practices, recognizing that compassion drives action.

 

  • All BCI trainings come with an interactive digital guide

  • Participants receive digital certificates upon BCI course completion of at least 3 hours

 

Target Audience: Leaders, community members, faculty, students

Facilitation: Online and in-person options; client provides venue

The Culturally Intelligent Enneagram (3+ hours)

The Enneagram refers to the nine personality types, with each representing a worldview that reflects the way people feel, think, and act in relation to themselves, others, and their environments. It offers insight into core personality traits, as it delves deeper into the core motivations, stress points, triggers, and security points, which often lie in the unconscious layers of our personality structure. Ultimately, by recognizing stress and engaging security, people can increase their EI. Thus, as they interact with people across cultures, they increase CI. Organizations use it to increase empathy in leadership so they can demonstrate compassion. This 3-hour, interactive and research-based training guides participants in understanding their Enneagram type and learning to more responsively interact with their colleagues, whether during productive or challenging situations. Enneagram assessments included in the cost; individual and team debriefs are available at an additional fee. Two assessment options: simplified (Spectrum) and comprehensive (iEQ9). Meet your Enneagram trainers, Renee and Shawn
