Most internationally operating professionals are aware of general social and business norms in their business partner’s country of origin. But despite their experience, even well-traveled and seasoned business people may encounter unexpected resistance when they begin working in a multicultural setting.
Establishing fruitful relationships requires more than broad awareness—it also needs sensitivity towards hidden dimensions of culture, values, beliefs and assumptions. To properly understand intercultural effectiveness, we start with self-awareness: what are the participant’s preferences and habits and what do they evoke in others? The full training from Intercultural Professionals offers internationally-operating professionals tailor-made consulting, coaching and training solutions to help them achieve the best results they can in international business.
