This is a PRACTICAL course designed for those managing international teams, or working virtually across borders, or negotiating with customers or suppliers from other countries. (Tailored to your team’s activities and countries of interest.)
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 with examples of business failures when culture is ignored. 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. You’ll identify the indicators of business values and the learn bridges to address conflicts. Then, we take this even further working through regions or country differences. The process provides tips for doing business and a foundation for diagnosing business situations.
This course is provided in English.
