"The mind is like an umbrella -
it functions best when open"
In today's globalized world, stereotypes and assumptions are failing us even more than they have in the past. It is in our best interest and bottom line that we capitalize on culture with intercultural competencies to mitigate miscommunication and misinterpretations.
Intercultural skills enable teams to work together more productively, prevent project failure, preclude the problems of disgruntled employees and premature repatriation, all saving time, energy, and money. Training is important for anyone working with others of different cultural backgrounds, and is an essential part of executive training today and crucial for anyone working, studying, or living in another country.
