Cross Cultural Training Program
Cross Cultural Training is a program created to develop awareness between people where a common cultural framework does not exist.
Cross cultural training programs cover a number of topics that address the needs of a particular group or corporation. In general, cross-cultural training courses consist of either general cultural training or culture/country specific training, although they certainly can be a combination of the two.
We offer 2 different types of Cross Cultural Training:
- General Cross Cultural Awareness Training
- Culture/Country Specific Training
General Cross Cultural Awareness Training
Cross cultural awareness training deals with the manifestations of culture in the workplace and has many applications. Its main purpose is to evaluate and constructively tackle the challenges cross cultural differences can bring to the workplace.
It helps to narrow the communication gap between employees and clients within a multinational company. Today’s multinational corporations are seeking to create a cross-cultural environment that focuses on the development of effective communication between employees and a multicultural business landscape.
Culture/Country Specific Training
This training enables participants to understand their own culture and the culture of their business partners. This training shows you a way to work effectively in the host as well as in your home country. It focuses on the specific region and business challenges of each client. Participants will learn about the particular cultural nuances of different areas.
We design all "Country Specific" courses from scratch and will certainly be able to meet your needs and requirements.
