Our intercultural training, which we deliver in in internal coaching sessions, will also sensitize you and your employees to all the challenges involved in dealing with customers and colleagues from other cultures. EHLION’s intercultural coaching will help your multinational teams to become unbeatable. Talk to us – we’ll adapt our coaching service to meet your specific requirements.
What is Intercultural Coaching / Cultural Coaching?
Intercultural competence is the ability to interact and communicate successfully with people from other cultures. Intercultural coaching aims to equip you with the skills needed for successful intercultural interactions and communication in a targeted manner. A central aspect to this is knowing how to handle cultural differences in a sensitive manner.
Avoid problems due to culture-specific misunderstandings and conflicts!
EHLION’s intercultural coaches are qualified trainers who will prepare you or your employees to deal with all the challenges you’re likely to encounter in the intercultural business world. We’ll ensure that your employees develop the necessary sensitivity and competence they’ll need for interfacing with customers and colleagues abroad.
The importance of intercultural coaching in business life
EHLION’s intercultural coaching will help you to build successful business relationships across cultural divides. Our experienced and professional coaches are completely familiar with the local cultural customs and business etiquette.
Building successful business relationships – across cultural boundaries
For example, our intercultural training will familiarize you with the working and leadership styles in the target country so that you can successfully communicate with and motivate employees there. EHLION’s coaches will give you valuable tips on conflict management and negotiation in the target country, and will explain the differences in attitudes towards physical contact as well as the meaning of gestures and facial expressions.
Who benefits from intercultural coaching?
EHLION provides bespoke intercultural coaching, primarily targeted at international corporate executives who often have to conduct high-level negotiations abroad. But we would also be happy to prepare your employees for assignments abroad.
Is yours a global company with a workforce made up of different nationalities? We support companies by providing bespoke intercultural training services for their multinational teams. We design and implement intercultural team building for both smaller and larger groups.
