An Overview

 

Cross-Cultural Transitions trains individuals, families, corporates and non-profit organizations in understanding the challenges and advantages of living and working with people from other cultures. We therefore assist people who are moving abroad as well as those who work in multicultural workgroups in their home country.

 

The work of smoothing intercultural transitions has never been so critical. More people than ever are moving to and from different countries. Inter-cultural understanding helps people see the world from someone else's perspective, and that leads to empathy and open-mindedness.

 

“Cross-cultural training is therefore essential if people are to acclimatise as effectively as possible to their new environment.”
 
 
Cross-Cultural Training in the Workplace

Our aim is to increase retention rates and cultural understanding in the workplace by providing exemplary cross- cultural training and workshops that is supported by leading research in the field. Our hope is that all organisations will strive to lead with cultural intelligence. The work of smoothing intercultural transitions has never been so critical. More people than ever are moving to and from different countries for work.

As workplaces become more multi-cultural by nature, it is important that organisations avoid cultural misunderstandings as they can lead to serious business risks. Unrecognised and understood cultural differences may lead to suboptimal performance, miscommunication and confusion within work teams.
