Bridging Cultures

Cultural Detective Bridging Cultures focuses on taking cultural awareness and savvy to the next level by looking at how to develop effective bridging strategies for working across cultures. Recognizing that cultural understanding is essential but not enough, this long-awaited development in the Cultural Detective series is focused exclusively on connecting cultural similarities and bridging cultural differences effectively to reap the benefits of diversity.

Through a series of short exercises and discussions, Cultural Detective Bridging Cultures helps individuals to develop the third intercultural capacity that is at the core of the series and develop effective, transformative, out-of-the-box solutions to challenging dynamics.

This addition to the Cultural Detective series helps individuals to:

  • Identify both bridge builders and bridge blockers to their success
  • Learn techniques for in-the-moment bridging of differences to ensure conversations spiral upwards instead of down
  • Develop strategies to both prepare for and repair cross-cultural relationships
  • Develop high impact, creative resolutions that take into consideration interpersonal, intercultural and situational factors

This package can be used as a standalone exercise but is best used as a powerful complement to any Cultural Detective package for enhanced skill building.

Cultural Detective Bridging Cultures is authored by Kate Berardo and Dianne Hofner Saphiere.
