Our world has been made up of many different cultures, religions, beliefs and differences. It’s what has sustained the diversity of life on earth. Workplaces now more than ever before reflect that diversity and differences that make us all a unique individual.
Global competency, the ability to navigate cross-cultural differences in order to communicate effectively, is a key determinant of business success across this country and worldwide. All aspects of business, including relationship building and problem-solving, are impacted by culture.
Cross-Cultural Training has become a standard component in the talent management and development strategies of many leading organizations. Understanding different cultural interactions and business styles enhances team cohesiveness and effectiveness across all corporate functions from sales to procurement, technology, and support services. In the rapidly expanding and changing global marketplace, business leaders are being asked to do more with less support, preparation, time and resources.
This fundamental understanding is also a vital component in effective communication and response for first responders and law enforcement personnel alike.
