Cultural competency is the ability to understand different cultures, to establish relationships, to negotiate successfully in a global setting and to lead sensibly and efficiently in a culturally aware manner.
Cross-cultural training will mitigate the risks and maximize the benefits of global working.



Given the dramatic cultural transformation in today’s marketplace, the relevance of inter­cultural communication competence cannot be overstated. To compete in the global and U.S. markets, today’s managers must possess the skills to interact with people who are different from themselves.



Professor Philip Rosenzweig of Harvard University argues that successful cross-cultural interactions depend on the abilities of individuals to communicate effectively. Rosenzweig points out that communication is especially important during the initial stages of a business relationship.



We are living in exciting times that call for courageous and authentic leadership in leading through blurred boundaries. The changes we see are opportunities for growth and development as individuals, organizations, and communities. We have an opportunity to identify and clarify our interpretation of the world through our relationships with one another. Within this framework, we can seize the chance to identify our blind spots and to uncover the stories we tell about ourselves and why we can or cannot interact with others.

Lastly, we have the potential to explore our work around cultures in a way that uncovers the hidden routines and habitual behaviors that contribute
negatively to human relationships.

The focus of the 3-day conference was on building a global community of Israelis living in Diaspora, collaborating with Jewish organizations, Education in Diaspora and on improving Israel’s image in the world.
