Intercultural training helps employees and families successfully adapt at work and in daily life abroad through practical, learner-friendly cultural training.
Through insightful cultural self-assessment tools, one-on-one training, and practical cultural guides, we answer questions, address concerns, and provide assignees with the cross-cultural skills for a successful adjustment to home and work-life culture.
Intercultural training is a company’s best hedge against risk on global assignments.
The assignee sent to build a business, train a sales team, or implement a new technology, has a much greater chance of success if he or she has knowledge of the local culture. Every assignee needs help with intercultural communication skills and the ability to adapt to the local culture more than ever! Intercultural training is the key to ensuring the success of global teams and mobility.
The pace of business demands a faster pace of learning... we’re ready for it.
Our training includes powerful tools like the CultureCompass®, which helps individuals understand their cultural background in comparison with the cultural norms of the destination location. CultureCloud® is our online self-paced program, supplemented with a local culture guide and access to online training sessions. Whether a classic, in-person training, or distance learning through video conferencing and online tools, we prepare assignees for success in their new cultures.

For a lot of people, traveling for work every week or a few times a month is just the usual, but it can also feel a bit repetitive at times and a bit daunting for those who are new to work travel. Traveling for work is commonplace for a few friends and family members of mine, so when I had the chance to travel for work myself, I assumed I would know exactly what to do. While I was pretty confident, looking back I could have used some of these simple and creative ideas on how to stay busy and entertained when I wasn’t in the office.Read more. . .
- Where does classic training take place?
- Training can be delivered before departure from the home country or post-arrival in the host country at home or at work. Typically, classic training is most beneficial when it occurs 1-2 months after arrival, after gaining experiences in a new culture, and having questions to ask!
- What topics will be discussed?
- Training, information, and skill building focus on ‘living in’ and ‘working ‘in’ the host culture. Topics include stages of adjustment, culture shock, daily life, customs, social protocol, holidays, country background and values. Other topics explore aspects of work life including leadership, meetings, negotiations, projects, teams, relationship-building, virtual communications, and business etiquette.
