Design and deliver customized solutions for more effective intercultural collaboration.

As we look at some of the macro trends in the work environment over the last few years, there is a significant increase in employees who work across multiple time-zones, national cultures and sub-cultures creating a multi-cultural virtual environment.  Organizations are increasingly building geographically distributed teams to enhance their capabilities in supporting their global growth.  As teams become more distributed, their shared assumptions and norms dissipate as the teams no longer work in the same physcial space.  That has led to fundamental changes in how work gets done.  Additionally, leaders need to acquire key intercultural business skills when doing business with different cultures for more effective intercultural communication. 

World Trade Resource offers virtual-led or face-to-face, intercultural coaching programs delivered by certified intercultural coaches for global leaders, global work teams, global assignees and business travelers. These programs create success by building cultural awareness and strategies to develop cultural competency during facilitated, interactive, coaching sessions. Additionally, our coaches can facilitate a more effective intercultural dialogue to better support global leaders and teams who work in a global environment or when doing business in different countries. GoWorldWise, our trademarked digital learning experience, is leveraged to develop a deeper understanding of cultural differences within the team members and provide a more enhanced experience.
