What if working with other cultures was easier than you think?

Let me guess: You’ve just been offered a position working with colleagues from other countries. You’re excited about this opportunity and think this will be a great experience, but you’re also feeling disheartened from reading many “do and don’t” lists which weren’t helpful in understanding.

 

Despite all your preparation, you haven’t been able to find the answer to your most pressing question:

What is the other culture really about and how do you work with them?

Maybe you’re frustrated not knowing how to handle socialising? Who needs conversation to build relationships and who just needs to get to work?

Maybe you don’t understand how people can have such different concepts of time?

Or maybe you feel stressed not knowing how decisions are handled? With some cultures it seems to be the boss and with others it seems to be the whole team.

Right now, you feel like you’ll never figure out how other cultures work, and – honestly – you don’t think YOU need to change because your way of doing things is the best.

You think working in different cultures is a real challenge and that some things are simply not normal. They’re just plain foreign.

In your dream work-world…

Imagine feeling joy starting your new position because you know what to expect! You are ready to communicate your ideas clearly, and you are no longer worried about offending anyone because you are open to how other cultures behave.

You’re happy that you and your colleagues are working together toward the same result. You have a newfound understanding of cultural values which helps get your project up and going with ease.

You feel like a real team! And you feel excited about their world without losing yourself in it.

You are feeling all fired up to dive in and make the most of your time together achieving the project goals in comfort.

When you’ve managed the social aspects, the different concepts of time, and where the power is, you feel deep satisfaction that it was a great experience.

However, that great experience isn’t always easy and can feel like a frustrating exercise.

Do any of these sound familiar?

  • You wonder why some colleagues want to get right down to work and others would rather socialise.
  • You feel like they just do not respect time, place, and deadlines.
  • You aren’t sure when it’s a team decision or the boss’s final word.

You’re impassioned to give it a go and ready to take the necessary steps so your great experience will be a comfortable fit and even a great fit.

How would your life be different if working in another culture was more comfortable than you imagine now?

I’m here to help you find a comfortable fit despite the challenges. I’m an intercultural coach and trainer for corporate individuals and teams who don’t feel comfortable working with different cultures because it’s just not easy.

Together, we will find ways of working across cultures that are effective and logical so you can produce excellent work, build confidence and bring joy into what you do.

After your ‘Discover Your First Steps to Effectively Working Across-Cultures coaching session, you’ll feel less stressed about working in a cross-cultural team.

You will:

  • Recognise who wants to get down to work and who needs to socialise so you can adapt your behaviour and find a happy medium.
  • Pick-up on why some people don’t seem to respect time, place, and deadlines so you can intervene at the right moment to make it work.
  • Recognize who’s the decision maker (the boss or the whole team) so you can feel comfortable in either situation.
  • Understand when the other culture is doing something normal for them but not normal for you, which will help calm the stress.

That’s when you begin to feel that your work is effective and excellent, and when the joy of working across-cultures sets in.

You stop feeling panicky and you start feeling confident!

Answer a few questions about what cultures you are working with, what your biggest challenge is, and what you will gain after you overcome the challenge. Take your time to answer them.

A 90-minute call to pinpoint some of the elements that make the culture you are working with so different from your own and how to handle the situations that arise out of it. Discover 6 key elements that give you clues as to when something cultural gets in the way and makes your work frustrating. We’ll discuss the cultures you are working with so can adapt your behaviour without losing your sense of self.
