The Details

Join Jamie Gelbtuch, Founder of Cultural Mixology, to learn how to effectively navigate cultural differences in a global work environment from a neuroscience perspective, including:

  • How the brain can work for us—and against us—in developing cultural agility
  • A framework for identifying where you and your colleagues are focused in conversations and how to shift into the brain’s higher realms of thinking
  • Strategies for tapping into self-awareness and consciously focusing on achieving mutually desired outcomes
