We offer various cultural programs:
Working across cultures: Developing cross-cultural competence
Working in an international environment with different nationalities 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.
Local multicultural offices: Effective communication in the office
In a growing number of organisations there are multiple nationalities working in the same office location. Our programs aim to help internal interactions become more effective, and create greater understanding and a more harmonious working environment.
Leading multicultural, global teams
As a leader you want the best performance from your team. You need 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 and can be tailored to your organisations’ cultural diversity.
Short-term and long-term (expatriate) international assignments and global projects: Country, or region specific mobility and relocation training
Whether the employee is on a short-term project abroad or a multiple-year expatriate assignment, it is essential that s/he can interact with her/his stakeholders in an effective way. Our programs help employees and their families prepare for the cross-cultural challenges of their role as well as support them during their adjustment period. Programs include: Successful assignments in Singapore, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, South Korea, Vietnam, Japan, Australia, India, Southeast Asia, APAC, Asia.
Developing local employees
Expatriates need to learn about local employees, but if we want to increase overall effectiveness, local employees also need to learn about the behaviour and communication styles of expatriates. Our programs support local employees to work successfully with expatriates coming from different cultures.
Cross-cultural competence for induction programs
It is important that all employees be culturally aware and competent, and this can begin right from induction. 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 Mindset
Is your international assignee (expatriate) well-suited and prepared for their assignment? Would you like to know whether your senior executives or high potentials have a global mindset? Our assessments will help you identify strengths and potential areas for development. Based on the results we help individuals design their developmental plans.
