Many miscommunications we have on a daily basis are due to lack of empathy and/or cultural awareness. When we have a better understanding of different perspectives, we are able to expand our intellect by finding new ways to approach problems and to innovate through these experiences. Papilia offers powerful sessions on how to be a global citizen by creating meaningful connections regardless of where you live in the world.
