BUILDING INTERCULTURAL VIABILITY(TM) IN ORGANISATIONS: The Development of Collective Intercultural Adaptability

Join this course to help your organisation—or those of your clients if you are an external consultant—pursue the strategic goal of sustainable adaptive potential to social change.

In addition to predictable changes such as increasingly multicultural societies and greater emphasis on equity and inclusion issues, future social situations are sure to include unpredictable changes such as the ones that have occurred during the Covid pandemic. Since organizations cannot prepare for such changes specifically, they need help in developing a general adaptive capacity.

The course will use the new concept of Intercultural Viability™—the probability that an organization can adapt to unpredictable changes in multicultural social conditions—to guide advanced practical applications of a constructivist paradigm, a model of perceptual development, and coherent activities that foster intercultural consciousness. Participants will learn how to approach organizational adaptive capacity in a coherent way, how to explain it to stakeholders, how to coordinate program design elements, and how to select appropriate assessment methods.
