Cross Cultural Sensitivity – A basis for strong interpersonal relationships across cultures


Cross cultural sensitivity is a term that refers to the cultural shock that a person experiences when he/she go from one culture to another. When people are suddenly transported to a place that is not native to him/her, they are faced with a certain anxiety about losing the familiar grounds and the signs and symbols of social intercourse that had been implanted in him all those years. In order to prevent this culture shock from occurring, practitioners have come up with a training course for cross cultural sensitivity which would orient people to understand the difference between the two cultures and be prepared in advance.


The cultural sensitivity online course aims at not only orienting people to live abroad, but also introduce them to and help them practice appropriate behaviors. This helps professionals in developing more effective interpersonal relationships with their colleagues and leaders abroad and also enable job success by interacting extensively with individuals from cultures different their own. These cross cultural training programs are aimed at not only professionals traveling abroad but also in preparing home country professionals to deal effectively with people who are from a different country and thus a different culture. With outsourcing on the high today, different people from different cultures are bound to be thrown together and that triggers the need for effective communication between them by having a basic understanding of their behaviors, etiquettes and taboos.


Benefits  In depth awareness of cultural differences and understanding their impact  The basic foundation required for becoming culturally competent  How to deal with the cultural challenges arising in multicultural work environments  Practical training to avoid misunderstandings occurring from cultural insensitivity and motivating towards positive cross cultural work relationships

In our course, we use internal trainers, a mix of approaches and tools to help professionals become culturally aware. Trainers will share with you their personal experience about a country’s culture, geography, demography and the psyche of people. Etiquettes to be followed in various countries and the general behaviors are all covered in an interactive and comprehensive manner.
