The desire for trust is a constant across cultures. In any setting, a person must know how to create a trusting environment to increase creativity, productivity and morale. The decision to trust is influenced by one’s cultural norms, values and other life experiences which in turn, impact how people behave in organizations or groups. The behaviors of trust across cultures, driven by the desire to trust or be trusted, can be similar, contrary and many places in between. This class exposes students to intercultural and organizational theories, research, and the instructor’s 20+ years of experience with dozens of global teams in high tech, automobile, big pharma, oil & gas, entertainment, and retail industries.
