Today’s global economy requires personnel to either move or travel frequently to other countries. Whether your company has short-term business travelers, expatriates, or both, it is critical that individuals are well versed on how to conduct themselves and communicate appropriately in this diverse work environment. To meet this demand, Global LT provides expatriate training in language and culture, coaching and consulting for expats and their families, and for short-term business travelers.
International assignees and their families often experience culture shock when they integrate into a new cultural environment and reverse culture shock when they go through repatriation. To ensure a smooth transition, Global LT uses an international network of professional trainers to assist each participant by creating awareness, minimizing conflict and maximizing productivity through customized learning approaches, which are convenient and personalized to each individual or group.

Need a way to measure an individual’s cultural adaptability, flexibility or readiness for a work assignment abroad? Global LT’s Cross Cultural Adaptability Inventory (CCAI™) tool provides insight into an employee’s ability to adapt culturally to a new environment through a self-evaluation of four skill areas: emotional resilience, flexibility and openness, perceptual acuity and personal autonomy.
Cultural Assessment Tools
An effective Cultural Training Program must begin with introspection. Awareness of one’s own mind-set, expectations, and abilities are essential in determining where cultural connections and cultural gaps exist. When this insight is achieved, training is highly personal and participative. New knowledge and information about the others’ beliefs, behaviors and values are learned and examined through vivid and practical comparison.
