In an increasingly globalised business environment, ubiquitous technologies such as email, Zoom, MSTeams, etc, have massively facilitated cross-border peer-to-peer communication.
At the same time, they have massively increased the potential for mis-communication.
We expect everyone to be able to use the medium, the technology, and we give them training for it, but for some reason we don’t pay as much attention to the message, and how we communicate in a cross-cultural work environment.
Cross-border teams, virtual teams, remote working, agility, collective intelligence – these all require a greater level of cultural awareness, of cultural intelligence, than ever before.
Hence this unique range of 90-minute virtual classroom sessions, focused on understanding cultural difference and sharing numerous practical tips for working as part of, or managing, a global team.
The sessions have been designed, and are delivered mainly, by our lead cross-culture specialist, Angela Lequenne. A tri-lingual Italian living and working in Paris, this is a subject close to her heart. She delivers these sessions in English, French or Italian, as required. Sessions can also be run in other languages, by other members of our global delivery team.
‘Understanding cultural difference’ is the best starting point and a pre-requisite for the ‘deep dives’ and ‘country focus’ sessions.
These are best run as a series, although ‘pick and mix’ can work well too.
Other countries can also be covered, on request, by members of our global delivery team.
We can, of course, tailor any of these webinars to your precise requirements or we can design a programme from scratch. Just give us a call today on 01582 463460.
