Company Human Capital in the global era

escalera colores yohan

“90 percent of leading executives from sixty-eight countries named cross-cultural leadership as the top management challenge”

D. Livemore. Leading with CQ.  Amacom, 2009

The Intercultural Communication Center was established in 2012 with the objective to add Intercultural Intelligence in the global organizations and train leaders and international workers to become intercultural aware and effective in their fields.

Cross-cultural differences impact every function of an organization and its people. Being intercultural competent is defined as being able to positively interact with people, co-workers and external stakeholders of different cultures.

Survey data from over 1000 Senior Executives across 40 nations identified a lack of high quality talent that can operate in multiple cultures as the greatest challenge facing global organizations. CEO briefings (2006, 2007)

As the demand for cosmopolitan human capital exceeds its supply, it is vital for firms to develop such global talent internally in order to sustain its competitive advantage.

Just as educated parents are able to create a home environment that transmits values and habits to their children to aid them academically, we propose that organizations that possess global culture capital provide a work environment that fosters the development of human capital through the process of situated learning (Brown et al. 1989; Lave and Wenger 1991)

Our Clients


zahnrad gelb
HR Professionals 

Choose your international work force effectively, train for international proficiency, assess Intercultural Communication skills, learn about generations’ culture (X,Y, Flux) and make value from that knowledge.

Intercultural Intelligence is one of the basics in HR. Assessment, training and team coordination are fundamental HR tools. One of the common misconceptions is to mix up “Ethan/Culture- knowledge” and “Cultural Intelligence”. One of the reasons why only certified Interculturalists should submit professional training in the field is that Intercultural Intelligence is proved one of the most important work-force pillars.

Develop “Intercultural Intelligence (CQ)” One of the fundamental skills international leaders should not overlook and will make them so much more efficient.  CQ is assessed like Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Quotient (EQ) and can be taught and improved.


zahnrad blauInternational teams / Virtual Teams / International Projects

Build profitable workforces. Often virtual teams remain inefficient and act as a source for conflicts, while Project Managers are unaware from the fact that 73% of these conflicts are culture oriented. International and Virtual Teams coordination is a must for international projects success.

Intercultural Customer Relationship Management (ICRM)

Customize sales, according to cultures. Just to get some information about your customer’s culture will not help you when you are unaware of your own culture. Learning how you influence your customers and to manage that influence is fundamental for increasing sales.


zahnrad gelbDiplomats

Improve Communication. Diplomats understand that communication is the basis of their work. Achieving Intercultural Intelligence is a  way to secure switching between cultural attitudes.


zahnrad blauMultinational Companies DOM (Diversity Office Management)

Build a Diversity Office. Since Intercultural Communication affects most aspects of a global company, the cheapest solution for it is to have in-house assistance concerning IC issues such as Company Culture Management, Intercultural Marketing, Training, Assessments, Relocation assistance and IC conflict-solutions.

Consulting

In the Consulting Journey we will analyze and define the Company’s Culture and outgoing communications. We will increase effective communication in your in-house-teams, your virtual teams and with your external stakeholders. Together we will take the road to global success by achieving intercultural capacities that will affect the bottom line.

Unfortunately often companies call when international projects are already locked. They should have understood that the reason is a lack of healthy communication in their teams.

We will go through a diagnostic journey, detect the issues, develop strategies and implement solutions.
