What You Will Learn :
- Use this knowledge to prepare for cross-cultural business interactions, identifying critical global communication barriers and devising efficient ways to handle them
- Utilize a variety of resources to communicate more effectively with their international colleagues
- Deal with culture shock to successfully engage in business relationships across cultures
- Recognize how culture impacts interpersonal interactions, learn how their own behavior impacts their personal and professional effectiveness, and develop more effective and productive work relationships
Businesses big and small are participating in the global marketplace, and employees need not travel across the ocean to experience different cultures and ways of life. By equipping each employee with the appropriate knowledge, deal-breaking and costly mistakes can be avoided.
Global Effectiveness is based on working within the five cultural dimensions—Task and Relationships, Power Distance, Uncertainty Avoidance, Individualism/Collectivism, and Context Communication. This program will teach participants what types of behaviors to expect from certain cultures and how to prepare themselves for business interactions. As participants learn about each of the five dimensions, they will understand stereotypes differently and will be able to make business interactions run more smoothly.
