How well does a leader shift cultural perspective and adapt their behavior to cultural differences and commonalities?
A high level of intercultural awareness accelerates the executive's cultural adaptation curve, resulting into higher productivity and job satisfaction. On the contrary, a low level of awareness produces disengagement and loss of motivation, together with costly breakdowns in communication, misunderstandings, and business blunders.
We offer our services to executives and business people considering moving to or doing business in Latin America and the United States.
We work with cross-cultural adaptability tests that measure the leader's ability to living in another culture and to interacting effectively with people of other cultures. We use objective measures that help leaders become more aware of their own cultural identity and the level of their intercultural competence
INTERCULTURAL COMPETENCE ASSESSMENT
Awareness of the leader's own cultural identities and experiences is the first step in becoming more effective cross-culturally. We partner with our clients in processes that will help them understand, motivate and engage employees from other cultures, by focusing on the leader's self-awareness and the impact they have on others. We discuss the culture of the destined country, and the main behavioral differences in business and personal contexts.
We help the leader enhance their level of their team awareness. We design an ad-hoc team introduction workshop to discuss perceived values, behaviors, and cultural differences among team members, accelerating the leader's adaptation curve.
