How to Address the Cultural Aspects of HPT Interventions
Eileen Maes
o, CPT, United States Coast Guard, and Andrea Edmundson, PhD, CEO and Global Learning Strategist, eWorldLearning
The human performance technology (HPT) process allows us to identify potential interventions in international environments. However, sometimes performance issues might be related to–or exacerbated by–cultural differences. In addition, whether the performance issue is related to cultural Andrea Edmundson Photodifferences or not, you Eileen Maesomight need a culturally appropriate intervention to address the issue. For example, is mentoring a good intervention in Malaysia? Is your manager in Japan not a decision maker or are her cultural ways of communicating sending you the wrong message? In this presentation, you will learn (a) methods to discern performance issues created by cultural differences, and (b) alternative interventions that are culturally appropriate. This session addresses what to do when cultural differences are the cause of–or complicate the adoption of–performance improvement interventions. Register Online
