CROSS CULTURAL AWARENESS & GLOBAL BUSINESS ETIQUETTE TRAINING
When we work with other cultures, it's easy to be influenced by common stereotypes, misconceptions and prejudices about our new colleagues. Without realizing it, we carry those misconceptions and stereotypes into meetings, conferences, trainings or even social gatherings that can make communication difficult and hard work.
Working, meeting, dealing, entertaining, negotiating and corresponding with colleagues or clients from different cultures can be a minefield. One wrong movement or basic misunderstanding could ruin or delay months of work.
In our own culture (where we feel at 'home'), we are all individuals with a host of differences; yet there are so many similarities that the differences can seem negligible. There appears to be more in common than may actually be so, but somehow we absorb and adjust to the differences. When we work with other cultures, the differences are far more apparent and it becomes much harder to see the similarities.
What can be done?
The really good news is that something can be done about these difficulties It is easy to make small adjustments, tweaks and fine-tunings in order to become a more effective and aware communicator when working cross-culturally. Learning the simple cultural do's and don'ts can help generate respect and understanding.
