Webinar: Cultural and Communication Issues that Impact Global Business: Tools to Succeed in a Global Business Environment

We are pleased to announce a free 60-minute webinar, “Cultural and Communication Issues that Impact Global Business: Tools to Succeed in a Global Business Environment” on June 29, 2017.

Working globally is challenging for many reasons, and differing cultural communication styles often exacerbates the difficulties. Whether it is differences in the importance of hierarchy, the preference for direct or indirect communication, or the value placed on relationship-building, a lack of awareness of cultural expectations can often impede the success of global business interactions.

We invite you to join us for a one-hour session on “Culture and Communications Issues that Impact Global Business” where a number of these issues will be addressed:

  • Why agreements across global boundaries are often misunderstood
  • Understanding the multiple meanings of ‘yes’
  • How to obtain clear agreement among global colleagues

As part of this session, you will also be given complimentary access to the industry-leading GlobeSmart Profile℠ for use with your global colleagues and team members. The GlobeSmart Profile allows you to quickly see similarities and differences between your preferred style of interacting and that of other cultures, individuals, or team members.

The webinar will be presented by Aperian Global, an organization dedicated to enabling individuals, teams and organizations to work effectively across boundaries. With over 25 years of experience, Aperian Global partners with organizations to develop the skills necessary for success in a global work environment via facilitated learning programs, consulting and online learning tools. Aperian Global offers global talent development solutions to many organizations in the areas of Leadership Development, Inclusion & Diversity, Team Effectiveness and Global Mobility. Aperian Global’s GlobeSmart®, an online cultural intelligence tool, focuses on how to conduct business effectively around the world and has supported over one million registered users in over 160 organizations and universities worldwide.

Please share this invitation with as many of your colleagues as you want and encourage them to also register. If you will be in the same room listening together, only one person needs to register. If you will be in different offices or locations, each person will need to register.  You will view the power point slides via your computer and can listen either via your computer speakers or the telephone.

If it is difficult for you or others to attend, the webinar will be recorded and posted on the ELA website within a week of the live event; you are welcome to listen to it there.  We encourage you to take advantage of this free webinar.
