Being successful in one culture is no guarantee for being successful in another…

Four decades ago a well-known multinational encountered difficulties when they sent their best managers from the USA to Germany, China ect. Most of them were unsuccesfull! Scientific research by Prof. Dr. Ir. G. Hofstede brought up very interesting cultural dimensions, which provided very strong managing tools. Prof. Hofstedes saying is: “There are thousands of cultures, but only six cultural dimensions!” Leaders, managers etc. who are aware of these insights know how to push the ‘right cultural buttons’ of the people they have to work with! Knowing about these six cultural dimensions will broaden your horizon, so open your windows and influence your world, get a grip!

More over, in the light of human evolution, it is a fact that collaboration is the magic word for success. Global collaboration is next, and needs of course knowledge of intercultural communication to avoid intercultural miscommunication.

Why almost for free?, you might wonder.
That is because we want the knowledge to be available for every person on this planet.
Of course face to face training is not to be abandoned.
But an intercultural training has a large knowledge component in itself.
We recommend you to do the e-learning for the knowledge, and use training time to experiment with behaviour!

We wish you an interesting and joyful journey!
