Cross Cultural Awareness – Intercultural Communication Training

Cross Cultural Training"...the single greatest barrier to business success is the one erected by culture."
Edward T. Hall and Mildred Reed Hall

Working, meeting, dealing, entertaining, negotiating and corresponding with colleagues or clients from different cultures can be a minefield.

Understanding and appreciating intercultural differences ultimately promotes clearer communication, breaks down barriers, builds trust, strengthens relationships, opens horizons and yields tangible results in terms of business success.

Expat Relocation Courses

Expats moving abroad

Do you relocate people abroad for work? Years of research has shown that most expatriates end up returning home or under-performing in their roles due to not appreciating local conditions – both in terms of work and socially. Our expatriate cultural awareness courses help secondees and their families gear themselves up for a big move; with the right information on their new country plus practical know-how on dealing with culture shock, people are able to cope with the stresses and strains of working in a new culture more positively.

Management Training

Manager of a culturally diverse team

Managers today not only have to deal with multicultural teams but sometimes also managing such teams remotely. Our intercultural management training courses are designed to help managers understand the impact of cultural differences on their role. Our training works with managers to identify their own management styles, the expectations of others, cultural differences, remote working and sets out practical guidelines on getting the best out of their teams.

Cultural Awareness DVDs
