Cross Cultural Training

Cross-Cultural Training, how to adapt to others…

Either you are a young professional, or a well-rounded senior, leading a Team, or working as a Team-Member in, or just landing on an intercultural context is never an easy challenge. This Seminar aims at helping Foreigners or Thai people to learn how to adapt to different culture(s). To avoid cliches and stereotypes, this 12 hours Group-Coaching will focus first on a deep understanding of what intercultural is, not by using opinions, but using metric approaches.

On a first part, we will consider the “big Picture”, especially thanks to the 6 Dimensions of Culture Theory, initiated by Geert Hofstede. The attendees will then have a questionnaire and feedback that will help them to position themselves on the 6 dimensions scale.

On a second part, we will be defining each and every personality type of the persons attending the training, thanks to the MBTI®, to help them understanding better their own communication and how to adapt it to their current or future environment.

Thanks to this 2 legged training, attendees will be able to develop their own action plan.
