Embrace cultural differences and recognize the importance of each team member’s and business partner’s personal and cultural values
and how they influence their behavior and communication.
The Culture & Diversity modules allow you to immerse yourself in other cultures to get to know and understand yourself and others better!
1-day training can include the following topics: communication patterns, cultural dimensions, categorizations, stereotypes and prejudices, personal cultural
values & corporate values, business etiquette, manners.
Prepare yourself & your employees to work together, across cultures and national borders.
If expectations and perceptions of team members or supervisors do not match those of the company, motivation decreases.
In this module, we will analyze both your personal values and the company culture to identify the “cultural” similarities & differences of two different dimensions.
Let me help you or your expats prepare for what’s to come; a possible culture shock, different social norms, taboos, and values
that may clash.
Offer personal coaching or group training to your employees so they can (re)integrate and feel welcome – in a different culture or a noticeably changed environment.
