Case Study - Coaching Local Content

A British company working within electronics had opened an office in Moscow. As part of the global training curriculum for all personnel the company wanted to find a training consultancy that could take their training material, understand it, translate it into Russian and deliver it to their people in Moscow.

Three years later and we are now responsible for the localization & delivery of training content across their global locations.

Insights into Russian culture: Course Content

What the contents of any given course are completely depends on who we are training.

Once we know a little about a client’s circumstances we offer solutions and suggestions not only about content and topics, but also in how we deliver the training and who delivers it.

Our courses offer you the benefits of a bespoke, tailored training combined with robust, well-researched content.

Examples of topics we can cover include:

» Russia and the West

Modern history’s influence on cross cultural (mis)perceptions
Breaking stereotypes
Theoretical and practical cross cultural models and examples
Steps to effective cross cultural communication

» Communicating with Russians

Beliefs, culture, values, ethics, customs and national character
Interpersonal relations
Building relationships
Communication – verbal and non-verbal
Social etiquette and protocol

» Doing Business in Russia

Language tuition

» Relocating to Russia

What to bring?

These topics are typical of those covered in a course looking at Brazilian culture - if there is anything in particular you wanted to cover, this won't be an issue.

Flexible Training Delivery

All our training courses can be delivered in a number of ways:

self-study guides
simulations & games
mentoring & coaching

Which format a course will take depends on the client - we are open to any way of training as long as it is effective - this may be traditional face-to-face training in a classroom style environment, a webinar or even a hands-on coaching session.

As well as flexibility in how we deliver the training, we can also deliver our courses in any international location.

First-class Cultural Trainers

All Commisceo trainers are hand picked for their expertise in four key areas:

1 - Deep knowledge of intercultural studies
2 - First-hand knowledge of a country/culture
3 - Experience in industry
4 - Inspiring training style

First and foremost, our trainers are passionate about intercultural communication and have a deep, academic knowledge of the subject.
Secondly, in order to be able to teach people about a country or culture we believe it is necessary to have lived and worked there, not just to have visited.
Thirdly, a trainer has to bring practical business know-how to the table such as management, marketing, sales or HR which can only come from work experience.
Lastly, we demand trainers that inspire and who can create fun, interactive learning environments.

The trainer you received will be the one best suited for you. For example, if we are coaching a family moving to Moscow then our trainer would be someone who has been through the move themselves and can give first-hand insight. Similarly if a manager needs coaching on how to remotely manage manufacturing staff in Russia their coach would be someone who has been there and done it.

Eye-opening Training Style

We want people who attend our courses to leave with their eyes wide open. We don't believe we can do this unless our training courses engage - this can only come when learning is relevant, fun and enriching.

  • We guarantee relevance through a thorough needs analysis.
  • We keep it fun by making it all about interactivity & self-exploration.

Our trainers are at the forefront of training and coaching developments and are constantly introducing and using new methods and techniques.

Whether you want a traditional group training course or an elaborate fantasy role-play, we deliver.
