Tribalism Us -v- Them? Co-working in the 21st Century?

During the last 18 months the role of the Language Service Provider (LSP) has changed due to Covid 19 and its variants. We have been working remotely for quite a long time and are now slowly getting back to working on a face-to-face basis.

This course will look at the notion and suggest that a Tribalism, Us -v- Them culture exists. We will discuss how it is that this situation could possibly occur and how we adopt various methods to prevent it happening. We will look at how to recognise the emergence of ‘tribes’ and how we, as professionals eradicate it and ensure that our co-working experience is more towards an all-inclusive way of working.

At the completion of the course, participants will have a better understanding of the following:

  • Have a better understanding of what Tribalism is:
  • Have a better understanding of the ‘red flags’ that identify where tribalism is occurring:
  • Have a knowledge of what constitutes a tribal environment and recognise the underlying causes:
  • Have a ‘tool kit’ that you can carry with you when you are co-working with others:
  • Recognise the pros and cons of co-working effectively, and identify when things are going ‘wrong’:
  • Have the confidence to say ‘that’s enough:
  • …and much, much more.
