Walking in Two Worlds

Walking in Two Worlds is a course Cross Cultural Consultants have designed to fill what they saw as a gap in the market of cross-cultural training, both in the Northern Territory and Australia-wide. That gap is a distinct lack of training tackling cultural issues from the other side, working from the perspective of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities.

Cross Cultural Consultants believe that effective cross-cultural relationships work best when both groups understand better the unique differences in their respective cultural frameworks. That is why Walking in Two Worlds is intended specifically to give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities the tools and skills to literally ‘walk in two worlds’. That is, to give them an understanding of other cultures, and an ability to interact effectively with those cultures in a way that works for both parties.

Walking in Two Worlds Outcomes

Over the years, Cross Cultural Consultants have worked to polish the Walking in Two Worlds course framework into a training experience that delivers consistent results in almost any group. The course works on a series of learning outcomes for participants, and is made up of a series of modules that can be altered or adjusted as per your specific needs.
Participants in the Walking in Two Worlds course will:

  • Examine

    Examine, using a compare and contrast model, a common base for understanding cultural difference,

  • Learn

    Learn why cultures organise the world the way that they do, and how difference cultural approaches can be managed, using practical examples and instructive role-playing,

  • Discover

    Discover how to apply self-reflection tools (often lacking in the cultural frameworks of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples) to better understand an individual cultural perspective, and

  • Develop

    Develop skills and strategies to work more effectively in cross-cultural contexts.
