In today’s workforce, we work more often than ever before with other cultures across the globe – we even state that a “Global Mindset” is a desired competency for both ourselves and our leaders. Against this backdrop, HODN's April guest speaker, Tina Breslin, presents a session called “When Cultures Collide and using Values for Transformation”. Tina  will discuss why it is important to know your own culture, understand other people’s cultures, promote engagement through values, and build strong working relationships.

The session will explore the work of the Barrett Values Center (BVC) and its Seven Levels of Consciousness® model, which applies to all individuals and human group structures and how they grow in stages of psychological development. We will examine the model through a lens of striving for self-actualization in our organizations by understanding values – both our own, and those of the people we work with. This HODN meeting will include topics such as:

  1. Becoming Culturally Aware on the Global Stage: why it matters to be more culturally aware and what it looks like in the US, India, China and UK
  2. Cultural Norms and the Five Key Dimensions (from Aperian Global) – using cultural intelligence as a resource for improved cross-cultural understanding
  3. Introducing the Barrett Values Model – from Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to Levels of Consciousness
  4. Working through a case study to understand working globally and valuing differences when involved in a mutual project
