A profound life-changing experience.

The 6 Stages of Cultural Mastery course is a deep and honest journey into the leader’s soul. In the course, each participant will be guided through teaching and experiences that will prepare them to successfully connect, create and collaborate with people different from his or herself. In addition, leaders will honestly confront their own deeply held beliefs and biases about people of other cultures. We implement a unique multi-tiered approach to the course experience. First, participants choose a version specific to their profession. Second, participants choose a cultural group concentration. Third, participants are paired with another person in their learning cohort to experience the 6 Stages together. This multi-tiered approach ensures a transformative and profound experience for all participants.
