Synopsis: For HR directors, corporate trainers, college administrators, diversity trainers and study abroad educators, this book provides a cutting-edge framework and an innovative collection of ready-to-use tools and activities to help build cultural competence―from the basics of understanding core concepts of culture to the complex work of negotiating identity and resolving cultural differences.

Building Cultural Competence presents the latest work in the intercultural field and provides step-by-step instructions for how to effectively work with the new models, frameworks, and exercises for building learners’ cultural competence. Featuring fresh activities and tools from experienced coaches, trainers, and facilitators from around the globe, this collection of over 50 easy-to-use activities and models has been used successfully worldwide in settings that range from Fortune 500 corporations to the World Bank, non-profits, and universities.

Learn updates on classic models like the DIE (Description, Interpretation, Evaluation) framework and the U-Curve model of adjustment. Engage in new exercises to help build intercultural competence, using the practical step-by-step guidance on how to effectively facilitate these activities. Stay relevant and have positive impact with clients, organizations, and students with these well-organized, easy-to-implement, and high impact collection of frameworks, models, and activities.

The new, research-based models work for developing cultural competence in any environment, and for designing effective cultural competence courses. Education abroad administrators will be able to use these activities in their pre- departure orientations for students going abroad. Corporate human resource professionals will find these activities invaluable in cultural competence building programs.

From the Back Cover: "A new book of training activities is always welcome, but this volume offers something more: a thoughtful, careful analysis of how to design and execute relevant cultural training. You get the toolkit, in short, as well as guidance from some of the master builders."
- Craig Sorti, author, trainer and consultant in intercultural communications

"This book brings creativity and innovativeness to training tools, models, and activities. I fully agree with the authors that it is amazing that this important field of endeavor has made so little progress in the last 30 years. The cry for intercultural competence becomes louder at a time when we don't have to travel to find an increasingly diverse population, and thus training is needed now more than ever."
- Fons Trompenaars, founder of Trompenaars Hampden-Turner, a major multinational consulting firm with offices in The Netherlands, Japan, Singapore, and US

"Building Cultural Competence makes a valuable contribution to intercultural trainers by presenting 50+ innovative activities designed specifically for the development of intercultural competence and framing the use of these activities in terms of intercultural facilitation and intercultural development."
- R. Michael Paige, author of Education for the Intercultural Experience and Professor of International and Intercultural Education , University of Minnesota
