Even the best-performing employees sometimes feel outside their comfort zones when working with an unfamiliar country or region.
Culturewise’s cultural awareness training improves the confidence of global leaders, managers and team-members.
Confident employees are more comfortable with co-workers and customers from different cultures; more inclined to take on high-pressure international challenges; better able to convey messages using the right cultural tone; and less concerned about making cultural errors or faux pas.
Culturally capable employees understand their own work and communication styles. They recognise how culture shapes their approach to business and workplace behaviour, and how they may be perceived by colleagues, partners and customers from different cultural backgrounds.
Knowing that other cultures are different, and knowing something about other cultures, provides a firm foundation for high-performing cross-border relationships, off-shoring and outsourcing projects, mergers and acquisitions, international joint ventures, international expansion and partnership engagement.
Cultural misunderstandings can damage global business relationships.
To communicate and work successfully in diverse, multicultural business environments takes skill.
Above all, it requires a well-developed capacity to bridge cultural divides and develop effective communication across cultures.
Culturewise’s cultural awareness training recognises, acknowledges and reinforces current best practice in your business, and introduces new skills, techniques and best practices for bridging cultural differences in your workplace, or with global customers, clients and partners.
