    Cultural Awareness

Facilitators and their audience "learners" need to trust and understand each other, and as part of this training program and its associated Continuous Professional Leadership Development (Post Graduate) Program will assist in this.

    Cultural Awareness is the foundation of communication and it involves the ability of standing back from ourselves and becoming aware of our cultural values, beliefs and perceptions and accommodating the differentiation in interpretation of other cultures.

    Prior to the commencement of any course the Facilitator and Learner both undertake an "Open Session" of getting to understand each other with this final segment of the ISO Learners Needs Analysis discussing prior learning, industry experience, the learners "Sponsoring Organisation", the Hogan and GMAT assessments and finally targets and goals for the learner to complete their Learning Program.

    The final step of the Learners Needs Analysis is taken with the Facilitator exposing the Learner to the Academy's Library of allocated Standards and resource material which will used and referenced throughout the course.
