Mastermind with us at the SIETAR USA Annual Conference

How many of you will be attending this year’s annual SIETAR USA conference?
Let us invite you to join us in Tulsa, Oklahoma, from November 9-12, where the leading professionals in the intercultural arena will gather to learn from each other.

For the team at The Culture Mastery this will be a first, as Christian Höferle will be leading through one of the presentations at the conference. The topic of his session:

Mastering the Mastermind – Why think-tanking is the killer app for building cultural competence

Mastermind Groups have become quite the rage in recent years. More and more business leaders are recognizing the benefits of this concept, which combines brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support in a group setting to sharpen one’s business and personal skills. These Think Tank-like groups are an ideal format for expanding the cross-cultural competence of each member and an elegant remedy for preventing disengagement in a global work environment.
This session highlights the key benefits for masterminding as a development tool for global leadership. Participants will identify how they can design mastermind groups and start using this concept as a tool for their clients. We will discuss which facilitation skills and frameworks are required to successfully orchestrate and lead mastermind groups. As part of the workshop participants will interact during group activities and conduct a mini mastermind.

The annual SIETAR USA conference serves as a forum for interculturalists from varied professions and disciplines to come together to share their knowledge, insights, and questions with other members of the intercultural field. Members of SIETAR USA share a passion for deepening their understanding of cultures, increasing intercultural competence in themselves and others, and continually fostering culturally respectful and inclusive ways of making the world a better place to live and work.
Whether it’s Baltimore or Beirut, Paris or presidential elections, the people and places around the world are polarized – distanced by varying perspectives that fuel society’s tendency to “other” each other from afar – or even right next door. Our differing cultural, racial, political, and religious identities and ideology prevent us from connecting with the oneness of our shared humanity.
