Essential tools to increase understanding and collaboration in a multicultural business environment. This course will give you the skills and knowledge to develop your ‘cultural intelligence’, allowing you to adapt your communication strategy and build rapport and communicate effectively across cultural barriers.

The culture we are brought up in instils in us a set of values, habits and traditions which have an ongoing influence on how we communicate with others and navigate our social and professional worlds. The 21st century business environment not only brings together workers and stakeholders from many cultural backgrounds, it also involves working within dispersed teams and collaborating across the globe.

A lack of cultural intelligence and poor cross-cultural communication skills can cause misunderstandings, embarrassment and conflict, leading to real business consequences.  Therefore these aptitudes are increasingly essential to you and your organisation’s success.
