The Cross-Cultural Transition Program is designed for assignees and their families going to foreign locations and covers:

  • Day-to-day living in the host location: people, housing, health, education, shopping, travel, etc.
  • Doing business in the host location: means of communication, negotiation, conduct of commercial business, local work practices, leadership styles, decision-making and effective business transactions
  • Cultural value systems: examples of differences between home and host location cultural values and the implications of these differences
  • Managing the transition: an examination of the psychology of transition and its impact on the assignee and their family
  • Assignee performance coaching: addresses interpersonal and leadership competencies and challenges in a cross-cultural context
  • Cross-cultural adaptability assessment: an examination of personality qualities considered influential in cross-cultural communications and effectiveness
