Cultural Detective Facilitator Certification
San Diego, CA, Oct. 21-23, 2017

SIETAR USA is excited to offer a post-conference Cultural Detective Facilitator Certification Workshop in conjunction with Cultural Detective, from October 21 - 23, 2017.

Cultural Detective (CD) is an extremely useful tool for those committed to developing intercultural competence. It develops skill in a developmentally effective manner, guiding the learner to look at people as unique individuals influenced by multiple cultures—not just nationalities but gender, spiritual tradition, generation, sexual orientation, ethnicity, organizational culture, etc. CD is process-based so it combines well with other tools and content and encourages critical thinking. Regular use shows remarkable improvements in interpersonal and organizational effectiveness—Microsoft reports a 30% improvement in their customer satisfaction using CD.

While certification is not required to use the tool, the Cultural Detective Series is so robust that users have asked for in-depth workshops to learn more about the many applications and strengths of this approach, and to network with peers using the Cultural Detective Method.

The workshop is designed for small groups who share two-and-a-half days of intense, guided interaction. We explore what “intercultural communication competence” means, and offer ways to use Cultural Detective to enhance intercultural effectiveness in your organization or community. Cultural Detective is partnering with SIETAR USA to provide a Facilitator Certification Workshop. Proceeds will be split 50-50 to support SUSA activities.

Certification Workshops are a wonderful way for the advanced practitioner to reflect on the things that matter, and develop the ability to combine and integrate various theories, approaches, and tools in the field. The workshop is also invaluable for those new to the field. We explore the impact of multiple cultures on each of us, the idea of layering Value Lenses to visually represent these influences, and a variety of ways to incorporate Cultural Detective into your training, coaching and educational curricula.

Workshop attendees receive the Facilitator Certification Manual, Cultural Detective Series Guide, and personal-use copies of the full Cultural Detective package used in the workshop (both the facilitator and participant materials). In addition, they receive a one-month subscription to Cultural Detective Online, a 10% discount on Cultural Detective materials they purchase directly, a certificate of attendance, and the opportunity to be listed as a Certified Facilitator on our website. Plus, you’ll support SIETAR USA!

The workshop begins Saturday evening, 6:00PM to 9:00PM, then continues Sunday from 9:00AM to 6:00PM, and again on Monday from 8:00AM to 1:00PM, allowing time for attendees to return home for work on Tuesday.

Facilitator will be Tatyana Fertelmeyster.

One seat in the workshop is $995.00 USD; early-bird rate through 30 September is $925.00.
