The Importance of Global Fluency in Today's World

Today’s global economy and our global communities demand that all employees are able to collaborate and interact with people from different cultural backgrounds. Global Fluency Training gives professionals the awareness, tools, and confidence to interact effectively across cultures.

The trainings involve hands-on experiences, practical examples, and a research-based, comprehensive framework for understanding the six main dimensions on which cultures differ. Participants are provided opportunities to practice recognizing and adjusting for those differences through practical scenarios.

More than 300 professionals have already rated the training as critical to their global business success.

Half-day Workshops

Up to 4 hours

Half-day workshops define intercultural competency and its role in professional environments. Participants explore a comprehensive six dimension framework to facilitate effective cross-cultural understanding and apply it to selected case study cultures. Participants are guided as they create a meaningful plan to successfully interact with another culture.

Full-day Workshops

Up to 6 hours

Full-day workshops examine the content offered in the half-day sessions on a deeper level. Hands on activities are used to get participants to consider other perspectives, common misunderstandings in cross-cultural interactions, and to develop successful tools to use in these situations. Participants are given resources on three selected countries that are used as case studies.
