We believe that a cultural training must include more than the typical „Do’s“ and „Don’ts“. This is the reason why our training sessions are carried out by trainers with considerable experience in the respective cultural area or with a bi-cultural background, thus providing the best results.
The reality of today's global marketplace requires companies to relocate staff to foreign locations in order to establish and nurture a business presence abroad. Many executives and managers sent to man foreign operations are usually chosen for their skills and accomplishments within their native country. The assumption is that 'if they can do it at home, they can do it abroad'. Research suggests this is not the case - cross cultural differences usually make such skills defunct in a new environment.
Maximising the chances of an employee's success in a foreign location is a critical business priority. If a manager or executive is sent abroad and fails to either settle into the new culture or work effectively with his/her new colleagues, the whole venture will be a waste of valuable time, effort and money.
Cross cultural training can and does reduce the chances of expatriate relocations going wrong. Employees have now realised the importance of intercultural understanding and its potential impact upon relocation. Cultural training aids the employee and family to better approach and deal with the relocation, ensuring that the negative consequences of 'culture shock' are greatly reduced.
Cross cultural training, in essence, helps the expatriate understand the culture of the target destination and provides them with coping strategies to support them when feeling vulnerable. Although the content of a cross cultural training course will vary according to who is receiving it (i.e. employee, spouse or children) they all benefit the participant by highlighting the cross cultural differences they will face in their new office and/or lifestyle.The manager or executive will receive coaching in areas such as business culture, etiquette, interpersonal communication, conflict resolution, man-management and other key areas that will help them communicate and work effectively with their new team.
A family or spouse will receive guidance of cultural issues relating to their new environment such as schooling, lifestyle, local culture, etc. Again this aims at familiarising the family with their new destination.
