Cultural Training Asia is a training division of DGL. For over 15 years Cultural Training Asia has been offering impactful and practical cross-cultural training
Working across cultures: Developing cross-cultural competence
Working in an international environment with different nationalities on a regular basis requires effective cross-cultural communication skills. Our ‘Working across cultures’ programs develop cross-cultural awareness and competence for employees working with different cultures across borders or locally, in a multicultural office.
Local multicultural offices: Effective communication in the office
In a growing number of organisations we work alongside different nationalities in our office location. Our ‘Local multicultural offices’ programs aim to help internal interactions become more effective, and create greater understanding and a more harmonious, open working environment.
Leading multicultural, global teams
As a leader you want the best performance from your team. In order to do so, you have to be able to shift your style according to the different cultures you are working with. The ‘Leading multicultural, global teams’ programs develop global leadership skills.
Short-term and long-term (expatriate) international assignments: Country-specific training for international assignees and their families
Longer-term international (expatriate) assignments are the best way to develop global talent and future leaders, but due to cost constraints, family commitments, etc. short-term assignments are also on the rise. Our relocation/ mobility programs help international assignees and their families prepare for the cross-cultural challenges of their role in the new location as well as support them during their adjustment period.
Developing local employees
Expatriates need to learn about local employees, but if we want to increase the effectiveness of expatriate-local interactions, local employees also need to learn about the behaviour and communication styles of expatriates. Our ‘Developing local employees’ programs help prepare local employees to work successfully with expatriates coming from different cultures.
Cross-cultural competence for induction programs
For organisations employing a multicultural workforce it is very important that all employees be culturally aware and competent. One way of ensuring this is to include some cultural awareness building into the new employees’ induction program. Options include preparing written materials for the induction package, adding a cultural interpretation of company values, or providing brief cultural training as a part of the induction program.
Cultural coaching for global success
An international career or a job with international responsibilities requires additional business skills. By addressing the ‘usual’ leadership issues as well as cross-cultural challenges we assist our clients to thrive in the international work environment. This program is a mix of coaching and knowledge input.
Assessments: Cross-Cultural Competence and Global Mind-set
Do you want to know whether your international assignee (expatriate) is well-suited and prepared for the assignment? Would you like to know whether your senior executives or high potentials have a global mind-set? Our assessments will help you identify strengths and potential areas for development. Based on the results we help individuals design their developmental plans.
