Intercultural skills for HR Managers

This training is a ‘must have’ for HR Managers who works in an international organization. When working with different cultures you will probably recognize a sense of miscommunication or being misunderstood. You probably think you’re well in-tune with your colleague who just happens to have a different cultural background. And then it turns out that the other person misinterprets or misunderstands you, with all the consequences that entails.

To recognize and bridge cultural differences
Working with different cultures requires a different approach. Understanding cultural differences and being willing to adapt, without losing sight of your own norms and values, are important first steps. Getting started will help you bridge the cultural differences in teams and work environments. Goodbye misunderstanding! Hello effective communication!

HR professionals in international or multicultural organizations have to deal with different cultures every day. A global workforce requires a different approach to recruitment, assessment, talent management and other HR processes. It is, therefore, essential that you develop your intercultural skills.

In addition, multicultural teams even have the potential to function better than teams with no diversity. As an HR manager, you can be a key factor in unlocking this potential and get value from that cultural diversity. 

This training will give you:
• insights into various cultures,
• help you develop the right competences to guide an international team,
• the skills to perform successfully and effectively in your role as an HR manager working internationally.
