Cross Cultural Training, Culture Training

Working in a new culture or with a team from a culture other than your own can be nothing short of a series of small challenges. 

A lack of cultural understanding can lead to hurt feels, lost sales accounts, and team dysfunction.

Our cross-cultural communication skills courses are practical, interactive programs designed to prepare participants to work in multicultural offices, travel abroad, or quickly become familiar with the United States.

In addition to providing an  academic framework for understanding different cultures, cross-cultural challenges, and issues related to communication, our workshops offer sound advice that can immediately be put in to practice.

As with all our programs, you can expect to be on your feet and working in teams.  What you will not get is PowerPoint lecture and a talking head reading from a course guide.
