Anyone who has grown up with brothers and sisters, or knows someone who has, knows that family life has its ups and downs. Yet the family bond means that despite differences, we learn to live together and treat each other pretty well. It’s not always perfect, there are disagreements and resentments, but normally the family bond holds steady. By staying in close contact with our family, we are more likely to express our feelings openly and offer and receive forgiveness in difficult situations.
Contrast that to how we treat others who are not our family or close friends. For example, in the workplace, team members who are not of the same background, culture, race or religion. What do you have to do to get along with them? How do you establish that familial feel and closeness that siblings often have? What might you do to create the honesty and openness that is a key element to most family relationships?

Working Across Cultures
VMWare - Bulgaria
"Each year the Babel module is rated 'outstanding' by our graduates. They feel really engaged and encouraged to learn and although some of them may have studied these topics at university, they have never experienced the content within such a multi-cultural group and the advice offered by top trainers. The graduates are excited to network with fellow colleagues from different offices and cultures and Babel's programme enables us to do this perfectly."
