The Benefits of Cross-Cultural Communication Skills Training
Cross-cultural training can lower communication barriers and build trust in the workplace. Whether you have a culturally diverse team, a group of people preparing for international work, or employees who will relocate to the United States for an assignment, a cross-cultural course can make communication and the integration process easier.
About Our Cross-Cultural Courses
Information is power. If you are prepared, even the unexpected is easier to handle. Our goal is to provide participants with the tools to handle almost anything. Whether you’re working with a multicultural team in your home country, preparing to go abroad, or expecting guests from overseas, our courses can help participants anticipate what might occur, how it will feel, and what to do about it.
During these hands-on sessions, we address such topics as cultural values and views on relationships, time, and personal space.
We can tailor our programs to incorporate information about individual countries upon request.
Our Workshop Facilitators
Our courses and workshops are led by facilitators who have had extensive experience living and working outside the United States.
Additionally, in our years of business training, we’ve had the privilege of coordinating multiple short-term exchanges and tours for international delegations. We understand the culture shock that can occur when visiting or relocating to the United States.
Our Interactive Approach to Training
While our workshops have an academic foundation, these programs are practical and hands on. Our courses are neither lecture-based nor consist of a simple list of dos and don’ts that one could easily find by performing a quick Google search. In short, we cover practical information and offer proven advice.
The summaries found on this page offer a brief description of our existing workshops. Click on the program titles to read the full course overviews.
We can facilitate the workshops as explained or tailor them per your requirements. If you don’t see precisely what you are looking for or if you are not sure exactly which of our solutions could meet your needs, give us a call. We would be happy to work with you to decide on an appropriate course of action.
