Thinking with a global perspective, being receptive to foreign people and cultures, and developing behaviors that aid in cross-cultural interaction are a few of the skills necessary when dealing with international organizations or working abroad. While all of this may seem like a daunting task, the consequences of not working proficiently across cultures can cost companies millions of dollars in lost and wasted revenues. This workshop enables participants to gain an appreciation and respect for working with associates from different cultures. Learning about a culture before diving into an agreement can save a company time and money.
Each participant will learn how to:
- Identify culture specific concepts;
- Understand cultural constructs;
- Make appropriate cultural adjustments;
- Develop global awareness.
