  Case Study - Being a Manager in Thailand

Our client was a UK company involved in the auto parts sector.

They had decided to move the majority of production to Thailand which involved sending a British manager to oversee operations in the country.

We were responsible for providing coaching and mentoring to the manager before he left to Thailand as well as after his arrival. As well as helping him and his family settle into expat life in Thailand we were also spent time with the manager helping him understand how best to manage this new operation.

Our Training Approach

Our name - Commisceo - perfectly describes our training ethos.

Commisceo is Latin, meaning “to unite, to mix, to mingle”; it infers that through people coming together, mingling and sharing knowledge, that unity can be brought about.

Many businesses and organisations appreciate that their staff need this understanding - with the global economy more important than ever they are investing in training courses, resources and intranet content to bring about “cultural competence”, “cultural sensitivity” or “cultural awareness”.

We feel many of the cultural awareness courses on offer today are defunct; they tend to be based on old, tired, monocultural paradigms and on top of that stick to the standard training-room-style format. Very few achieve true “cultural awareness” - in fact, if anything many courses entrench people further in their own cultural definitions rather than allow them to break free of them which is exactly what is needed.

As leaders in cultural awareness training and coaching we have adopted a different approach. We emphasise self-critique, skills based cultural understanding and experiential learning.

Our focus is on creating ‘global mindedness’. We don’t want “culturally conscious” people at the end of our courses, we want “culturally unconscious” people in that culture never becomes an issue for them; they don’t even think about culture as they have the skills, insight and know-how to think beyond this and see things holistically. No matter where in the world, or who they work with, they know how to make things work.

Our Cross Cultural Trainers

We are very proud of our trainers.

We believe they are the best in the business in terms of their know-how and more importantly, how they relate to and educate others.

Where do our cross-cultural trainers come from?

Professionally all our trainers are people from industry. If we deliver a course on management in Indonesia, our trainer would have been a manager in Indonesia.

If we are designing and delivering a team-building course for a global brand, our trainer would have been a manager of a multicultural team for a global brand.

Our trainers are picked specifically for individual clients based on professional experience.

Trainers are also chosen for their training styles and charisma; we don’t do ‘stand in front of audience and talk’ training. Our style is engaging, interactive, explorative and creative. All our trainers reflect this in how they deliver. Although all are natural motivators and educators, they all keep abreast of innovations and developments in methodologies, tools and the like.

The final requisite for our trainers is to wholeheartedly share our beliefs in why and how we train people. A shared ethos ensures our clients receive outstanding consultancy pre- and post-training.
