Unfreezing Cultural Conditioning
International executives tapped as SMEs and Hi-Pos are offered rotational assignments and/or international expatriate opportunities and projects as part of their professional growth, grooming, and succession planning. The high risk area for the executive is transitioning from a domestic employee to one living and working overseas. This presentation is an introduction to understanding how to use Kurt Lewin’s theory into a coaching program. Ms. Gil and Ms. Bath combine their 39 years of cross-cultural executive coaching, leadership development, and organization analysis experience to guide the audience through a recognition of how even the novice can achieve cross-cultural mastery through relating a building-block approach. The process includes a few critical thinking opportunities to engage an interactive audience, and a couple of short videos to illustrate and drive home the point of how we can apply relatable, everyday encounters towards foreign cultural values. The audience will come away from the presentation with a solid understanding of how strongly susceptible we are to association and confirmation bias; and will learn how to “unfreeze” our cultural conditioning.
