Why do you need our services?
Since the end of the 20th Century, the world began experiencing unprecedented economic expansion. Foreign products and services never before available in the U.S., were now found in supermarkets, showrooms, and specialized stores, and U.S. goods could also be found all around the world. Economic globalization had begun, and today we need to take full advantage of the opportunities that this economic expansion is presenting. Unfortunately, lack of intercultural knowledge often limits performance and can affect results.
In today's business world, intercultural training is extremely important as it provides executives and business travelers with the ability to analyze, understand, adapt, and handle the different ways people act and react depending on their cultural background.On the other hand, lack of intercultural training can cause a cultural shock that may eventually impact productivity and performance in a negative way.
Intercultural training is not diversity training. Harvard Business Review published the article "Diversity Training Doesn´t Work" in March 2012, pointing out that merely telling people what they can and cannot say or do when dealing with other cultures is not enough. We need to know why.
Intercultural training eases the way in global business as it actually explains and points out important historical, political, and social differences between countries. At the same time, it looks for points in common in order to help everyone feel more comfortable and in command when dealing with other cultures.
