Avoid cultural blunders (Miami)
In the recent article of the Wall Street Journal, the writer discusses how cultural mistakes, when expanding overseas, can cost your business dearly. While companies make sure they are very familiar with laws, regulations, etc when they do business abroad, they often forgo the cross-cultural training either due to the lack of time or lack of money or both.
A cost-effective solution to familiarizing yourself with the culture of the country you are about to do business with are Lunch and Learn Programs.
I am offering one such program -- "Succeeding in Russia" -- and I encourage you to take advantage of it if:
-- you are thinking of working with Russia
-- you are already working with Russia and didn't have cross-cultural training (or your employees didn't)
-- your clientele comes from Russia
Details of this program can be found here:
Any questions, please let me know. Thank you.
