In this blog, Sue Bray and Diane Landsiedel reflect on their own journey of lifelong learning to develop their competencies to teach and coach others in global teamwork. Keys 2 Culture is taking a trip to London to participate in a conference sponsored by WorldWork Ltd. entitled "Building Intercultural Competence: from self-awareness to personal change". Daniel Ofman, internationally recognized guru in personal development is the keynote speaker. Sue Bray, K2C Principal, will also be a panelist to discuss her experiences with helping others to create sustainable personal change. This annual event is a terrific opportunity to renew professional contacts and also, to share and learn more about personal change, team development, and best practices in creating change through the use of WorldWork's research-based assessment tools.

Sue Bray from Keys 2 Culture blogs in the K2C Reflections about the session she taught to a group of professionals at the International Association of Continuing Engineering Education (IACEE) business meeting in Valencia, Spain. As a member of this working group, Sue motivated everyone to think about their different cultural perspectives on reading and writing emails and what makes for effective cross-cultural communications.

This blog entry, written by Sue Bray of Keys 2 Culture, describes a cross-cultural course offered by the College of Engineering to working professional engineers in the University of Tulsa's ELITE Program: Executive Leadership Institute for Technical Professionals and Engineers. Sue taught a module in the program on "Leading the Global Organization Across Time, Distance and Culture". The content of the course helps engineers to develop an intercultural mindset, to better understand the perspective of the "other", and to improve their cross-cultural communication skills in a virtual and widely distributed work environment.
