| Working with colleagues and clients
in other countries is rarely as straightforward as working in your domestic
market. Misunderstandings can occur due to language problems; distance can
breed distrust; perceptions can be taken as facts; and cultural differences can
affect the way decisions are taken, meetings are run, tasks are delegated and
completed, and how deadlines are met. Spending one or two days to learn how to
overcome some of these obstacles and to develop an awareness of how different
people think and behave can greatly improve your international effectiveness.
This is an intensive workshop, typically run over one or two days for
groups of 12-15 participants. It is intended for people dealing with the
international aspects of business, who have frequent contacts with foreign
clients and colleagues, or who work in international teams or project groups.
Each workshop is designed exclusively for the client, taking account of their
own and their partners' cultures and backgrounds.
Many of these workshops focus on a specific culture or
area. Our most popular workshops are Working with Indian
partners and Working with Chinese partners. They
can be run in English and German.
