Cultural Competence Trainings

Lifestyle changes are inevitable.  Each change brings new challenges and demands new behaviors. The graduate, the spouse, the new employee, the entrepreneur—even the entourage– should all know before they go.

Navigating an unfamiliar experience, whether a formal dinner, a religious occasion,  entertaining, an interview or a new job, requires knowledge, graciousness and flexibility.  Professionals who want to strengthen business or social relationships need to understand how to interact within many different communities and organizations.  Cross-cultural awareness—at every level—has become a prerequisite for contemporary business and social interaction. Learning how to apply this knowledge is a critical business and communication competency.

All courses are uniquely designed for each client who selects from a wide variety of topics and/or countries (international protocol) according to his or her needs.
