International or internal cooperation is not running smoothly but it is unclear what precisely the difficulties are
The existing corporate culture does not support the new strategies or brand; there is a mismatch
Expansion into foreign markets is unsuccessful, and markets react in a different way to approaches that proved successful elsewhere
Performance of employees who have come from abroad seems not as good as in their home country
The organisational culture causes people to leave, leading to a high fluctuation of staff, despite financial incentives to keep them within the organisation
Corporate culture and country/regional culture are a source of identification and belonging and provide direction. However, both can be sources of frustration and an obstacle to cooperation.
We work with a simple framework built around the seven main factors that shape culture to decode culture-based behaviours. The resulting increased understanding broadens perspectives and creates an appreciation for each other.
Result: Improved cooperation and better outcomes by using everyone's strengths
Training on cultural awareness and “cross-culture benefits” to improve cooperation
Leadership training: managing across the diverse cultural contexts of today’s workplace
Preparing both individuals who will move abroad and teams operating in foreign markets on the various aspects of culture they can run into on a day-to-day basis
