Business today is global. Whether we are dealing with suppliers or customers from different cultural backgrounds, or we have co-workers from different cultural backgrounds, we need to be aware of those differences to work effectively with all people.

Cultural Dimensions

This program is designed to highlight some of the differences between cultures. It will look at the major cultural dimensions, and how different cultures fit along these dimensions.

After this presentation you should have a very basic understanding of why people may react differently to same request, or why people with different backgrounds my react differently to your management style. The important point is that if you understand some of the basic biases of different cultures, you will be more effective, and your team will perform better.
