Identifying the significant correlation of cultural diversity and cultural intelligence in an organization

Identifying the significant correlation of cultural diversity and cultural intelligence in an organization Part 1 of the assignment consists of a schedule of the practical activities of the workshop (approximately 1200 words) and is based on topics discussed in class. You can be as creative as you wish in this part as long as you apply practically the chosen topic in the form of a professional workshop. Please take care to consider the following factors when designing your workshop: 1. The inclusion of activities that is relevant and interesting. 2 .The appropriate timing allocated to each of those activities. 3.The way in which the topics and activities are integrated. 4.The instructions that ensure the activities are facilitated well. 5.The potential barriers to the successful implementation of the activities. 6.The diversity of activities to suit the varied personalities of the participants. Part 2 consists of final comments (approximately 300 words) summarizing what you have hoped to accomplish through the workshop. Note: The workshop can be divided into 4 parts and relate to each other and should last for 3 hours. SAMPLE OR GIUDE THE LAYOUT OF THE INTERACTIVE WORKSHOP DESIGNED TO ADDRESS THE GARDNERS THEORY OF MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCE The proposed workshop for identification of the type of intelligence using Gardners theory of multiple intelligence is divided into four modules. Please find the table form below which presents todays workshop schedule. The workshops duration is one working day. ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION PURPOSE 1. 9-10 am Icebreaker: Introduction of the group; participants choose the some cards that represent them; a short demo about the theory of multiple intelligences. Familiarizing with the subject and other participants. (2) 10-11.30 Group discovery and discussion about types of intelligences; forming 8 groups. Participants realisation of their intelligence type in accordance with Gardners theory of multiple intelligences; connecting with other people with the same prevalent intelligence type; discussion about having more than one intelligence type. 3. 11.30-12-30 Lunch 4. 12.30- 2 pm Pairing professions. Groups will choose the best types of intelligences for certain types of jobs. Discovery which types of intelligence are the best for certain job types. Discussion on how to implement different types of intelligence to different types of jobs. 5. 2-2.15 pm Tea & healthy snack break 6. 2.15-4 pm Charades and group presentations about the types of intelligence and on how to improve ones certain The implementation of new knowledge on how to improve individually. Discovering the proper learning styles appropriate for each type of intelligence. type of intelligence. 7. Closure. Icebreaker: Participants come to the room and are asked to pick up randomly scattered cards with pictures that represent their interests, skills and abilities (there are 2 or 3 cards representing each type of Gardners 8 intelligences, there should be enough cards of each type for each participant to choose freely). After the participants choose their cards they take a sit and are asked to introduce themselves and say what are their interests. The idea of this is to see if the interests will go along with the type of intelligence they will be classified to in the next exercise. After the introduction the person leading the workshop will deliver a 15 minutes demo about the theory of multiple intelligences to give the participants an idea about it and later he will explain what to expect in the next exercise. Group discovery and discussion: Now participants have to look at their cards and discover to which group of intelligence they belong. There are 8 stations in the room to form groups. Logical-mathematical, verballinguistic, interpersonal, bodily-kinaesthetic, musical, special-visual, intrapersonal and naturalistic. Each station represents one type of intelligence and it has a piece of paper with the exact description of the type. If someone has chosen cards with 3 that represent 3 different types of intelligence they are free to decide which group represents their intelligence best. After everybody finds their group the facilitator will instruct the participants inside the groups to discuss why they feel they belong to a certain group and what skills and abilities they share and what are the differences between them. For next 15 minutes participants can also share their other types of intelligence and talk what other group they belong. During the last 20 minutes all participants are to discuss what they learned about the types of intelligence, what they had in common and how they felt belonging to one group. This exercise will make the participants realise that we are all intelligent in a different way. Pairing professions: The facilitator will form 8 new random groups. This will encourage participants to mix and get to know new persons, not only the ones from their groups. Each group has to find 3 types of jobs from 24 to choose from that will be suitable to the assigned intelligence type. The jobs to choose from are: lawyer, writer, journalist, accountant, scientist, auditor, surveyor, architect, engineer, physical therapist, mechanic, jeweller, musician, piano tuner, choral director, manager, psychologist, nurse, therapist, entrepreneur, counsellor, botanist, geologist, landscape architect. Each group will be asked to be creative and come up with at least two more job types for their intelligence type. The facilitator will lead a discussion about other types of intelligence that are suited for the selected job types. This should make the participants realise that people use more than one intelligence type for certain job and that the types may vary depending on the person. The groups have to prepare 5 min presentations about the intelligence types and what features of that type make someone a good placement for a certain profession. The facilitator will hand out cards and materials to make the presentations more creative. Thanks to the presentations all participant will have access to the discoveries of each individual group. Group presentations: The facilitator will ask the participant to form 8 groups, in accordance with the primary groups they formed in the group discovery exercise. The facilitator will hand out sheets covering different VARK learning styles (Visual, Aural, Kinaesthetic, Read/Write) for each group. The facilitator will shortly in 10 minutes explain the different VARK learning styles and explain the importance of the individual approach to learning. Each group will choose one learning style and delegate one representative to play charades. All other groups are supposed to guess which learning style the representative is trying to show them without speaking or writing. The only group that is not guessing is the group delegating the representative. After this little entertaining exercise each group, representing one type of intelligence, will be instructed to prepare a five minutes presentations explaining the assigned to them type of intelligence and also discuss which learning style suits the best to this type. The groups should also cover how this knowledge could be implemented in the organisation The groups can be as creative as they wish to be. The facilitator will explain that the participants can play out little scenes to better explain their point or present a little case study. After the presentations all the participants will discuss with the facilitator the phenomenon of multiple intelligences and how it is not easy to classify someone to just one type. The participants will be encouraged to share their feelings about being classified to one type of intelligence and what are their takeaways from todays workshop. This exercise will give the participants the idea of learning styles to choose from in accordance with their type of intelligence. The potential barrier in these exercises are the personalities and attitudes of the participants. The outcomes are strongly dependant on the participants engagement and active participation. EXPECTATIONS OF THE WORKSHOP: This workshop had a couple of main purposes. The first purpose was strongly informative and introductory to Gardners theory of multiple intelligences. It is important that employees in the organisational environment are aware of different types of intelligence, as it is well known to judge people according to their level of IQ. The workshop hopefully helps the participants understand that even when someone is not very fluent with numbers or maths they can be still intelligent but in a different way. It is crucial for the employees and managers to understand the theory of multiple intelligences to fully use the human resources potential in the organisational environment. Secondly, this workshop was aiming to make the participants realise which type of intelligence they posses. Moreover, it was hoped the participants find more than one type of intelligence within them. The workshop schedule also covered the subject of the VARK learning styles with the goal of implementation this new knowledge and combining it with the knowledge about the theory of multiple intelligences. If managers could recognise the type of intelligence of their employees they could use proper teaching/learning techniques in order to execute the best outcomes. The underpinning purpose of this workshop was to make the participants realise how much the theory of multiple intelligences and the different learning styles are relevant to the organisational environment. In todays global world big organisations employees are becoming global citizens and they have to gain new skills and attitudes to succeed in the global business environment. This workshop aimed to enhance the participants skills like flexibility and adaptability, communication and collaboration skills, as well as sense of urgency by doing the exercises and presentations with short preparation time.
