  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.

Why cultural awareness training?

For us, cultural awareness training is about helping people access insights and information that are going to make a critical difference to their roles.

It's so much more than learning about culture, dos and dont's or how to communicate with someone from another culture.

In fact, cross-cultural training helps develops 10 core professional competencies.

  1. Complex Problem Solving
  2. Critical Thinking
  3. Creativity
  4. People Management
  5. Coordinating with others
  6. Emotional Intelligence
  7. Decision Making
  8. Service Orientation
  9. Negotiation
  10. Cogntive Flexibilty

 

First-class Cultural Trainers

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

  • Academic knowledge of intercultural communication studies
  • First-hand working knowledge of a specific country/culture/region
  • Industry-specific experience and a broad commercial accumen
  • Inspiring training style with the ability to connect with various levels

 

The trainer you receive for your training will be the one best suited for you.

For example, if we are training a family moving to Beijing then our trainer would be someone who has been through the move themselves and can give first-hand insights. Similarly, if a manager needs a course on how to remotely manage manufacturing staff in Brazil, their trainer would be someone who has been there and done it. If we are training a team of sales people looking at Qatar, then our trainer is someone who has sold into Qatar.

Our trainers speak with experience, offering learners access to someone that can make an impact in their roles.

 

Eye-opening Training Approach

We want people who take 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 always make courses relevant through properly understanding needs
  • We always keep courses fun by delivering them in an informal and interactive way
  • We always ensure they are enriching by challenging people to challenge themselves

 

Pick up new skills. Create winning habits. Boost your prospects when working across cultures.
