Course Overview

What is Culture? Culture is defined as the values, behaviours, beliefs, likes and dislikes, preferences, habits, and customs of a certain community or group of people passed down for generations. Culture defines a person and what culture does that person belong to completely depends on where a person comes from. Culture is a way of living. A person represents culture.

What is Cultural Awareness? Culture awareness means understanding the diversity of different cultures. It is especially important to know our own culture as well as the culture of people we work with or around.

Culture awareness is also about finding the commonalities that make working together easy and acceptable. Also, learning about differences that shape people behaviour. It enables one to communicate and negotiate with people without offending them.

In this Course by Zoe Talent Solutions, we explore the fact that with the growing business and its globalization, not only do we interact within our country, but we go cross boundaries and work with different people from different countries.
