Our world has never been more connected, but we’ve never misunderstood each other more.

Understand Culture

Gain Confidence

Be More Effective

“We had the opportunity to participate in The Culture Course in person. It was very interesting, enjoyable, and practical. Although we already knew something about culture (and lived overseas for years) it was very enriching for us. We were able to obtain a clearer perspective and a practical way to plan for our work overseas.”

Meet Your Instructor

Dr. Steven L. Nolen

Dr. Steven L. Nolen has a D. Min. Degree in Intercultural Studies and is certified by the Cultural Intelligence Center (CQ®) in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He has been learning, living, and teaching cultural principles for the past 30+ years.

This course is a combination of information from personal experience, personal academic studies, and sources from both business and non-profit areas of cross-cultural studies.

“The Conexion training was a very helpful experience for our workers. I believe it helped with introducing our people how to enter into cross cultural interactions with better awareness of the world view of others.  The information was engaging and helpful both to those who had a good deal of cross-cultural interaction, as well as those who had less experience.  The content in the presentation was supported by good research and sources, and it was designed to encourage discussion and participation. I highly recommend this training.”
