  Case Study - Turkish/British Team-Building

Our client is a UK engineering company with an operation in Turkey and the UK. We were approached as issues started to emerge within both sites which were affecting productivity and morale.

We provided interventions to both offices which promoted communication and dialogue and sought to identify the issues and help staff to find an in-house solution.

This intervention also sought to equip staff with an understanding of the differences in work approach between Turkish and British staff members.

This increased cultural understanding helped staff to appreciate that ‘differences’ on both sides were cultural and not due to ill will or negativity.

The training was a great success and provided the foundations for the teams to come together with greater trust and understanding.  Training is now repeated at both sites on an annual basis and targeted at new employees.

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.
