Intercultural Communication for International Teams

Getting underneath the surface

Do you have interactions with partners or international colleagues that lead to confusion, misunderstanding and even conflict?

Breakdowns in communication may be due to factors underlying communication caused by differences in expectations and behavior. With global communication and international business, we are interacting and doing business more frequently with people from other cultures and we may not have all the tools necessary to communicate with them appropriately. 

My cross-cultural training will provide you hands-on tools to improve your communication with international colleagues and clients by providing you an understanding of where communication can breakdown. You will learn how to recognize the signs of miscommunication, develop your awareness for differences in perception and learn how to adapt your language and perspective effectively. Building your knowledge of cultural differences will help you get the tools you need to build stronger partnerships.
