Our master classes explore and evaluate the impact of processes on business today Our master classes “Cross Talk”™ are designed to stimulate topical discussion, create forums of knowledge and develop methods proactive to change. Using our ASK™ Model we coach and mentor organisations how to integrate awareness, skills and knowledge to increase performance.
Communication is vital for all organisations. Globalisation has made cross cultural understanding into a business and the financial return on training is an asset which adds value. Cultural competence helps you to understand how and why people think, act, and do business in the way they do and also what they think of you. Cultural differences can result in a variety of approaches to business, even when English is used as the common language. Cultural competence training can help you succeed, by raising awareness of how people from other cultures think, behave, and approach business. Othella™ feel that promoting supportive environments is essential for business development. Effective Intercultural working is learned over a period of time through experience and reflection. It develops a greater potential for local business growth and builds a more productive workforce. Places are limited to support the learning experience. All the sessions include lunch and refreshments and a valuable opportunity to network with like minded individuals. We deliver our master classes in half and full day sessions. We run a rolling program during the year which you can book on or if you would like us to deliver any of the master classes’ bespoke for your organisation. We are happy to discuss your personal requirements to ensure your learning experiences are fulfilled to the optimisation of your organisation.
