What really sets organizations apart in an increasingly competitive global marketplace is their people, their ideas, their expertise, their ability to work together, and their ability to overcome mindset limitations. Decisions as to whether or where to expand internationally, who should be put in charge, how to communicate globally, whether to employ expatriates and/or local nationals, how to hire foreign transferees for local assignment in the United States, how to compete against off-shore organizations that may be taking market share from your enterprise, or how to prepare executives for international assignments can have dramatic effects on success or failure and the speed with which your financial investment is returned.
Our global management and cross-cultural consulting and training practice provides meaningful and rapid assistance to many organizations in the United States, Latin America, South America, Asia, Africa and eastern and western Europe. Our consultants have not only worked internationally, they have also lived there. Our understanding of cultural expectations, restrictions, languages, beliefs, requirements and limitations is second to none.
Our consultants bring extensive experience in both the conceptual and practical aspects of their fields of expertise. We help you to deal successfully with how cultural differences impact internal communication, negotiation, conflict resolution, relationship building, organizational structures, leadership styles, human productivity and market share.
