ESSENTIAL SKILLSET FOR A GLOBALIZED WORLD
CultureShift is a training and consulting group specializing in the development of intercultural competence. Our consultants provide assessments, training, facilitation and coaching support for individuals, businesses, and work teams.
Organizations in the global economy require employees who understand and respond to the challenge of leading in a culturally diverse environment. It is more important than ever that leaders be aware of difference and understand how to leverage it for effective performance. CultureShift's training tools help build effective multicultural workteams.
Culture is central to the experience of living in an environment different from one's own. CultureShift training provides tools for helping students recognize and respond to the challenges of social and cultural adjustments -- on top of pursuing their post-secondary academic studies.
“In the present global environment, we are bound to get multicultural work groups; understanding the communication requirements for such a group is very essential to get the most from the group. This area of training people in understanding communication skills in a multicultural setting, in my opinion, is mostly overlooked by major corporations. CultureShift’s contribution can help many organizations.” Pradipta (Business Analyst, Multinational Corp)
