An intense PRACTICAL course designed for those working on international teams, or with customers or suppliers from other countries. (Tailored for global or European teams.)
This course goes beyond business culture tips, providing a deeper look into the value differences that drive variations in business practices and communication styles. Combining research from academia and business, European Market Link’s easy-to-use Culture Insight Framework provides insight across various business situations and cultures. We start by giving examples of business problems when culture differences were ignored. Then, we consider how the brain locks-in culture, and offer a tool to overcome this natural reaction. Next, our Culture Insight Framework breaks culture into key value dimensions with real world business examples. We value indicators, and connect them to everyday business tips. Then, we take this even further by considering typical business situations, and how we may prepare to do business in certain regions or countries. The process provides both, tips for doing business and a foundation for diagnosing other business situations and cultures.
Cross-cultural seminar training topics:
- Define culture in a way that focuses on business.
- Culture’s effect on the brain, business processes & business decisions.
- Culture Insight Framework — Business culture “value” dimensions, indicators, and the corresponding business practices.
- Compare personal culture and country culture.
- Comparing business practices to others — communication style, management style, giving/receiving direction, planning, meetings, decision making and more.
- Country, language, or regional business tips and practices.
- Tips for any culture.
Note: Many of the topics above are integrated with minimal theoretical presentations. Information is primarily conveyed with exercises and workshops that use real business examples.
What makes this course different:
- It’s the REAL WORLD. The course is based on culture research, real business needs, and practical business situations.
- It goes deeper than just etiquette and avoids stereotyping. The Culture Insight Framework enables you to distinguish cultural differences and respond accordingly.
- Provided by experienced international business consultant. Read more…
