Do you need strategies for collaboration with international partners? Get started with an intercultural training by one of our experts.
Organizations engaging in international projects as well as expatriates relocating to foreign countries need up-to-date knowledge about the cultural challenges they are going to face. BAMIK’s team of experts is there to assist with the development of appropriate strategies. Our certified trainers are either natives of the respective national culture or have a long-standing academic and work background in the region.
In all our trainings, we use state-of-the-art research and methodology. While drawing on the large selection of cultural dimensions that are currently available (Hofstede, Trompenaars, GLOBE, and others), we also avoid the stereotyping patterns that are so often found in cross-cultural comparison.
We „zoom“ into the context for which the training is designed. If, for example, a training is about China, it will not be sufficient to make general comparisons between the country of origin and China. Instead, we look at the context given by the region (e.g. Shanghai), the company’s sector (e.g. car manufacturing) and the tasks that are ahead.
At the end of the training, our participants will be able to understand and appreciate the cultural differences and have developed strategies to cope with the more difficult ones.
Training formats can range from a short half-day impulse to larger programs of several days. We offer in-company trainings for which our trainers are generally available worldwide as well as the development of customized material for distance learning.
