Do you experience frustrations when you do business across cultures or manage cross-cultural teams?

 

If your answer is ‘yes’, InterMondo can help you become more effective by developing strategies to adjust your cultural behaviours.

InterMondo’s ‘5 Steps to Global Dexterity’ Program

If you manage cross-cultural teams or your business is expanding globally, you know cultural effectiveness is key to your success.

But without strategies for overcoming frustrations and anxieties you experience when communicating across cultures, you risk falling into cultural traps that can lose you time, money, clients…even your business.

InterMondo’s ‘Five steps to global dexterity’ program provides you with building blocks to adapt your cultural behaviours where situations demand it, so you communicate more effectively and achieve better business outcomes.

About the workshop

You are introduced to a 5-stage framework that helps you develop strategies for adapting your cultural behaviours in situations that require it.

You will work through this framework using group discussion, role play and practical activities based on real-life scenarios and challenges shared with the group.
