Training Confident Westerners to be Humble Participants in Multi-Cultural Teams (TR)
Thursday @ 3:30pm
The reality of multi-cultural teams is upon us and demands our attention if we desire missionaries from the West to be prepared to serve effectively in collaborative communities with members from all over the globe. The staff of Center for Intercultural Training is anxious to share some of the perspectives and techniques they’ve been employing. They’ll also share examples of how other organizations are training future and present missionaries for service on multi-cultural teams. You’ll experience participation in a currently-used learning activity and spend some time-sharing experience and perspectives that workshop participants bring to the table.
