Cross-Cultural Training

Cross-Cultural Effectiveness in the Global Workplace: Culture to Culture

Leveraging the talents and expertise of two or more world cultures is challenging, but so rewarding. When we are aware of the values and attitudes that drive our culturally inherent behaviors, we are able to communicate, participate, delegate, and perform at an optimal level for the benefit of the corporation and for all. This full day workshop explores the elements of cultural conditioning which influence our social and professional lives.
This program contrasts and compares up to four cultures (e.g. US and Japan, Mexico, Germany) and discuss lessons learned and strategies for efficacy.
