Working in an international environment comes with challenges. Another person seems to have the same values as you in some areas but in many ways they don’t have the same values. This training provides you with a practical application of the most famous cultural studies ever done, namely by Professor Geert Hofstede. He delivered the first and still the most relevant framework for cultural communication and cultural leadership. In this course you will be given a first introduction to his model and why people from different cultures do different things. The workshop is very interactive and insightful and provides you with two days on the best of intercultural management.
Culture and the awareness to overcome differences is the key to any success in work, in projects and in working and living in an international environment. This training is for anyone that works or lives in an international environment and wants to be highly effective and interactive.
The training is interactive, fun, insightful and provides the scientific method translated in a practical way to apply in day-to-day work. You will be much more effective after this training.
Furthermore, the training includes a culture compass, which provides you with a personal comparison between your own native culture and two other cultures of your choice. Strengths and weaknesses are customized to you as a person and this provides you with additional insights.
