Seamless Transitions

The challenges of adjusting to a new cultural, political, social, economic, and legal environment can easily be underestimated. Cross-cultural skills and knowledge are crucial to the success of international projects. Intercultural training will provide you with the tools to communicate effectively in this new cultural context.

According to the 2014 Global Relocation Trends Survey, two of the leading causes of relocation failure are inability to adapt to the host location and partner dissatisfaction. Intercultural training can help you and your family to navigate the cross-cultural encounters that are part of your day-to-day interactions.

Since your Intercultural Training Program is highly customized, it begins with a questionnaire followed by an interview to determine concerns/motivators/issues.
