Intercultural Training - USALooking for intercultural training in or on the USA? Look no further...
Assumption: The cultural proximity between Americans and Europe negates any need for cross cultural or intercultural training.
Reality: Behind this outward manifestation of cultural proximity lie many cross cultural differences that can and do lead to communication and interpersonal difficulties within the business environment.
Differences in language, business practices, work ethics, interpersonal communication styles, management techniques, etiquette and world view are all factors that are leading to intercultural communication breakdowns in companies on both sides of the Atlantic.
Our progressive intercultural training courses help all involved with their cross cultural communication needs by helping them achieve intercultural synergy.
Rather than allow intercultural differences to become obstacles to communication and productivity, we embrace and utilize cultural differences. Using culture as a vehicle to positive change we achieve clearer lines of communication, better interpersonal relationships and higher levels of creativity.
