Unique Learning Process
In the world today, we are increasingly spending more time interacting with different cultures and people from diverse backgrounds, whether at work, school, or in daily life; however, we rarely think about increasing our cross cultural skills to meet these times in which we live.
The Toolkit for Culture & Communication is designed to meet this need in a fun, interactive way that not only deepens your intercultural understanding and knowledge, but provides you with the basic skills necessary to connect to anyone, no matter their background. Sound impossible? Culture Bump has been helping people for over 40 years to be able to find a connection - despite differing cultural, social, or political views. How?
It begins from a different foundation which leads to a new way of looking at culture and people.
The Culture Bump Approach does not teach general things about many cultures or detailed things about a few. It goes to the heart of cultural division - small, daily differences. The approach teaches us how these differences are not only the things that can separate us, but also shows us that, if viewed and handled correctly, can be the very things that lead to deeper connection.
When you work through the Toolkit, you will learn how to take any difference from any culture, use it to grow a deeper understanding of yourself and others, and to dive into greater levels of connection with people anywhere.
Culture Bump understands the life's time and money constraints can often mean the desire or need to expanding your cultural understanding get put on the back burn. That's why we made Flexible Learning so you can customize a learning path that fits your interests, schedule, and budget! With Flexible Learning, you get the core Modules (Perceptions Module and Culture Bump Module) in a bundle and can buy the Topical Modules separately.
Core Modules: These 2 Modules (Perceptions Module and Culture Bump Module) will redefine the way you see to culture and introduce you to handling cultural differences using the Culture Bump Approach.
