Cultural Competence Training
LTC offers a variety of different options for cultural competence training, and will tailor your training to the specific culture where you plan to visit or relocate. We also consider what depth of knowledge you need in designing our training. Private and group cultural competence training options are available. We’ll work together to determine the course that best fits your needs.
What participants love about one-on-one training options is the optimal learning environment. Participants may jump in to question, or share an experience from previous interactions within the target culture/area. Instructors have an intimate knowledge of the culture they train in and therefore can provide the degree of detail needed, ranging from superficial do’s and don’ts to more deeply rooted values such as time, event, task and people orientation.
We guide participants to confidently discuss prior knowledge, language study, and even experience in the culture/area being studied. Every cultural competence program is customized to YOUR needs and culture-based questions!
Group cultural competence programs work well for both small and large teams who will be moving into new cultures. If you are frequently traveling internationally for business or if you have been promoted to a team of professionals who regularly need to communicate with global business partners, a group cultural competence program will strengthen your effectiveness.
The group program not only provides YOU the opportunity for cross-cultural exchange and learning, but is also highly motivating. You glean critical information from others who may have more experience than you, as well as expand your understanding of cultural values and norms in the target culture/area where you will be traveling or visiting. All of this occurs in a group setting, where meaningful dialogue and real-life scenarios are analyzed and discussed. Whether you’re looking at a short term visit or permanent stay in a new culture, YOU will be ready to cross the border with confidence.
Leaders in booming industries across the country rely on executive communication courses to increase their EQ, or emotional quotient, in English. While this course does not focus on learning a new language, it trains top professionals in their field on how to be an excellent communicator in the contexts they most often interact. LTC provides EQ training to both non-native speakers of English as well as native speakers. Our purpose is to equip emerging leaders in their companies to communicate effectively every time whether in presentations, professional meetings, email messages or formal reports.
When relocating to a foreign country, even familiar tasks become overwhelming. You may feel your world has turned upside down! We have tons of experience helping expatriots deal with a new culture, culture shock and associated language barriers. How do we do this?
Our repatriation programs (we have both adult and children programs!) point to the clear differences between how YOU may be used to interacting with others, and interacting with individuals in your new culture. We customize your program to your work situation, daily life, and family needs. We also focus on the acclimation process by helping YOU successfully accept and respond to your new culture and cope with the most challenging parts of relocation.
Do you find yourself continually hitting a wall within your organization? Are you struggling to move up the hierarchy or achieve the role of your choice? Perhaps you are missing training in emotional intelligence—or CQ.
LTC offers CQ training designed for professionals who are interested in building efficiency in their business interactions at home OR abroad. This fast-paced, interactive training is set up to train individuals and groups within companies just how to create meaningful business and social relationships.
We prepare you to do this by expanding your understanding of how specific cultural values and communication styles affect both your day-to-day life and business relationships.
We offer 2, 4, 8, 12, and 16 hour options for all of the above programs. The top countries we offer courses on are the following: United States, China, Korea, India, and Latin America. If you are traveling a region beyond one of these, we probably have something for YOU too.
