Culture Pop-Up “The Culture Salsa” on 4 OCT 2016

salsaDoing The Culture Salsa*Salsa (mixture) is the name of a dance which evolved from multiple dance forms such as Son, Cha cha cha and Mambo, all popular in the Caribbean, Latin America and the Latino communities in New York since the 1940s. Through the years Salsa has gone through a lot of variation and incorporated elements of Afro-Cuban and Afro-Caribbean dances. Different countries have distinct salsa styles of their own Just like salsa or “sauce” in Latin American countries is a mixture of different ingredients, Culture Training blends different elements and your ability to come up with the right mix for each trainee is part of the training’s success!

As you engage in intercultural training and coaching in your day-to-day practice, what kind of a “dancing” partner are you? In this day of blended learning programs and program customization, how do you adjust your style and steps to your partner(s), how do you pace yourself to their rhythm? How do you teach them new steps? When do you lead? When do you let them lead? What kind of “partner” are you most uncomfortable with and why? What can you do to deal with those who refuse to engage and how can you build on your faculty to “improvise”?

Sabine Baerlocher and Anne-Claude Lambelet will facilitate this interactive workshop, engage you to reflect on your style and share some tips and tricks to keep the Salsa alive.

Who should attend? While this session is primarily directed to Intercultural trainers and coaches, anyone interested in intercultural interactions and creating connections across cultures is most welcome to attend and expand his or her ability to adjust their style in day to day interactions.

What will you get out of the session?

  • An exchange of best practices,
  • An occasion to reflect on your own training style,
  • An opportunity to learn other “steps”.
