The Seminar in a Nutshell
Culture has to do with our beliefs about how things work and what is important. Our culture is such a part of us that it becomes invisible to direct observation. This is why we need a framework that will help us look below the surface and understand the roots of cultural differences. Such a framework will help us to see both the similarities and also the differences between our American assumptions and those of our Hispanic neighbors.
This seminar presents seven ways that cultures differ with an emphasis on how the Anglo-American culture differs from the Hispanic or Latin-American culture. The presentation will shed light on the sometimes confusing interplay between these two cultures.
The purpose of the presentation is to help participants successfully navigate the maze of Latin American social preferences and expectations and to avoid some of the pitfalls involved in cross-cultural partnerships.
