    Cross Cultural Conference Room: An Interactive Video Seminar

    Video - Purchase $550.00/$450.00 (Item#PDDC-IRCCrossCulture)


    The Cross-Cultural Conference Room program provides unique and timely insight into the global business world. The program demonstrates how teams of experienced managers from the United States, South America, and Japan, all working for the same multi-national company, attempt to solve a product failure dilemma.

    At first, each work team tries to reach agreement on the best course of action. However, because of the great disparity in their decisions, two of the teams come together to reach a final recommendation. The non-scripted deliberations bring out striking ethical and cultural differences in decision-making, teamwork, and management styles. By viewing how the management teams discussed the same problem, and came to sharply different conclusions, you will observe cultural differences that are rarely recognized and seldom understood.

    One of the beauties of this exceptional program is that it is designed to be used with or without an on-site trainer, with or without your participants coming together as a group, and with or without individualized (at-home) learning modules. This means you may mix or match any of the program's components to meet your needs.

    The package includes one resource guide, business case study, videotape, DVD, and CD-ROM. The CD-ROM, which can be used by individuals as a self-directed learning and/or in a group setting, outlines fundamental concepts in intercultural relations and explains the dynamics of the management team's deliberations through exercises, text, animation, and video.

    A Different Place: The Intercultural Classroom

    Video - Purchase $395.00 (Item#PDDC-IRCADP)


    This powerful two-part video program, with an accompanying comprehensive instructional guide and an extensive bibliography, addresses difficult situations in contemporary U.S. educational institutions. Educators, trainers and managers have found this unique program an essential tool in meeting the challenges posed by diverse groups.

    Part one is a docu-drama that depicts a classroom where conflicts occur based on cultural clashes. In this scenario, differences are often perceived as deficiencies, while notions of cultural variation go unexamined. Neither the students nor the professor are able to embrace the diverse classroom as an opportunity, but instead all of the participants feel dissatisfied and frustrated. The result: American students and the professor are annoyed and often combative and many of the international students become discouraged and withdrawn. Expectations about learning and teaching are not addressed. Historical and personal experiences are not explored. The cultural gap widens and the educational impact is lowered, rather than enriched. An opportunity is lost.

    Part two provides an analysis of the incident depicted in part-one: the communication patterns, learning styles, mutual negative perceptions and differing assumptions that lead to conflict. An interdisciplinary team of experts comment on the behaviors and values in the classroom that are neither recognized nor examined. this program explores problems, and challenges the audience to seek ways to resolve them. Viewers are guided through the challenging process of bringing the reflective self into consciousness.

    Although the setting is a university, the program's application extends beyond the confines of the classroom to the boardroom and multiple international settings. Participants have found that reactions to the material facilitate provocative discussions that bridge communication gaps, resolve conflict and expand perspectives of interactions and relations.

    Go For Broke

    Video/DVD $49.95 (Item#PDDC-PDDCGOBROKE)

    Like the feature film Glory, this movie tells the story of the much decorated 442nd Regiment through the eyes of its white commander played by Van Johnson. The 442nd Regiment, comprised of Nisei - loyal Americans of Japanese ancestry - exhibits heroism far beyond the call of duty, overcoming the Nazis as well as the extreme prejudice of white Americans who cannot accept "Japs" on their side.

    In the entire course of the war, only 10 people were convicted of spying for the empire of Japan -- and all of them were Caucasian. The video comes with a information on the Japanese internment and context questions about fear and hatred.

    During World War II the U.S. Government forcibly removed over 120,000 Japanese Americans from the Pacific Coast. These individuals, two-thirds of them U.S. citizens, were sent to ten concentration camps built throughout the western interior of the United States.

    The dollar loss suffered by Japanese-Americans is unknown. After the war Congress permitted victims to seek compensation from the government, but failure to produce any documentary records demanded by the government was punishable by a $10,000 fine and five years imprisonment. Victims who had already lost thousands of dollars and several years of liberty to the federal government did not rush to take advantage of the offer. Those who did make claims often received compensation far below actual loss. Nearly fifty years passed before the U.S. government formally made applogies and redress.

    The video comes with a information on the Japanese internment and context questions about fear and hatred. This video is a great teaching tool that utilizes the entertainment medium to enlighten.
