Some Learning & Development Solutions:

Cultural Intelligence

Being culturally aware and able to deal with cultural differences productively and inclusively, are business essentials when working across cultures.

Cross-Cultural Teamwork

This training solution focuses on communication and cooperation in the multicultural team—the factors needed for harnessing differences and co-creating new practices.

Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging

Diversity is a fact; inclusion is the action to make everyone count equally. Belonging is the feeling we want to achieve based on psychological safety and trust.

Gender and/or Young Age – Successful Around the World

Gender and age are strongly linked to status and associated with different qualities depending on the culture. Here we explore a toolbox for how to increase status and handle expectations in the most fruitful way.

Trade Across Cultures

When you have suppliers or clients in another market or plan to enter a new one, knowing the culture is a dealbreaker—market-specific or generic focus.

Cultural Transformation

Changing culture is a team effort that starts with a common understanding of our different perspectives and common goals. Values need to be translated into action, and the Culture Helix© underpins the process.

Leading Culturally Diverse (Remote) Teams

This is a session that is part of the Global Leadership Program, where the focus is on leading, inspiring, and building trust in the diverse and remote team.

Conflict resolution

Conflicts as such aren’t necessarily bad. They can be great for innovation and to build relationships, but they need to be resolved. The best time to resolve a conflict is early, so it’s necessary to know how to deal with it and have a plan/policy ready. When different cultures are involved, the process becomes more delicate.

If I had received cultural training in my 20 years of global career, I would have been more aware of myself, the other culture and be more efficient in turning national differences into equality. People are even today left to figure it out by themselves, making mistakes, creating misunderstandings and mistrust. Problems then need to be fixed, which costs time and might affect the bottom line of any company in a certain country, or not getting that deal.

Research has shown that a lot of mergers fail because of cultural differences (corporate or national).  I have lived the consequences of that while managing some joint ventures in Eastern Europe, sometimes a truly disheartening experience for all involved. Cultural awareness needs to be on the agenda of any company doing business outside its home market!
