About: Mudita's vision and goals
Mudita, a small business specialized in Intercultural Communication, aims to offer a different angle on diversity: our goal is to provide learners with a better understanding of what "culture" truly means, of how cultural diversity influences each and every interaction in today's globalized environment.
"The whys before the hows": Mudita's beliefs and priorities.
“Spoon feeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon.”
- E.M. Forster -
What makes us special? Our unique approach to teaching about workplace dynamics: our goal is to help learners understand the "Whys", so that they can work on the "Hows" with a deep understanding of what makes people tick across different societies.
Since every workplace is different, we cannot promise that our courses will provide blanket solutions to individual challenges: our commitment is to equip our students with the tools to implement the best strategies for their businesses, with the well-being and the prosperity of their people in mind.
We believe that:
- long-lasting, successful relationships are only possible between parties who understand each other's mentality, driving factors, and core values;
- "business culture" is a reflection of national culture and it is prone to ethnocentrism;
- it is not possible to understand how people behave in the workplace while being oblivious to the principles that drive them through their daily life;
- "Everyone speaks English" is no guarantee of effective communication: misunderstandings are common occurrences between people who speak the same language but don't share the same cultural references. There's language, and then there's context: understanding context requires familiarity with social norms, dictated by one's culture.
Mudita doesn't work FOR learners, Mudita works WITH learners on building organic knowledge and understanding around the complexities of human behavior.
A short guide to the role and influence of national culture on business practices and corporate culture.
What challenges do organizations face in an increasingly globalized place? Can knowledge and understanding of basic concepts and social conventions be assumed across different societies? Can uniformity and consistency of results be achieved in situations that involve stakeholders who don't share similar values, beliefs, and priorities?
