What is cross-cultural training?

It is training that provides you with the awareness, understanding and skills needed to communicate successfully with people of other cultures and backgrounds. Culture Boleh Global Training will generally focus on helping you cultivate Cultural Intelligence as a framework for ensuring you will stand out as an effective global communicator.

Why do I need cross-cultural training?

According to BBC, “the number one predictor of your success in today’s borderless world is not your IQ, not your resume, not even your expertise. It’s your Cultural Intelligence (CQ).”

What is the difference between cultural differences and personality differences?

This is one of the most common questions we get, and it is a very valid concern.  The basic difference is that personality is based on a combination of an individual’s genetics, and for the most part, their upbringing.  Culture on the other hand, is the shared values and beliefs groups of people hold on to and how those values and beliefs impact the way they behave and the environment they create.  Culture can shape an individual’s personality; however, an individual’s personality wouldn’t shape the culture they have grown up in.  Cultural groups can be national, generational, ethnic or even organizational. 

What are some examples of cultural issues at work?

We write dozens of examples of cultural issues in our blog. Read about them and you may be surprised at how relatable these real-life scenarios are to you. Keep in mind that research shows that culture impact 70% of everything we do on a daily basis at home and in the workplace.
