Cross-Cultural Management

Since many managers have not had cross-cultural management training, they find that managing employees from different cultures can be a major challenge.

The increasing diversity at work has changed the landscape of the workplace significantly. Cross-cultural management skills have become important.

To manage someone, you need to understand them and their culture.  Otherwise you are trying to manage them “culturally blind”.

Please keep in mind that employees from different cultures have their own set of unique values, beliefs, and expectations of what is a “good manager”. This is what I call the culturally-different employee’s “cultural comfort zone”. When they see that you as a manager understand their culture and their “cultural comfort zone” of working for a manager, they will tend to reciprocate and respect you more as a manager. 

My management diversity training will significantly increase your understanding of a culturally-different employee and how to succeed at cross-cultural management.  

 This mosaic of cultures at work means that you will noticeably benefit from my cross-cultural management training in several important areas such as how to build and manage a team of employees from different cultures. 

Our commitment to you is that our consulting, training, and/or coaching on managing diversity at work will make you significantly more successful at cross-cultural management.

For a complimentary discussion on how I might assist you, please go to the Contact Bill tab of this website; or send me an e-mail at; or call me at 905-599-6365 (if unavailable, please leave a voice mail message).

I’ll do my best to respond to you before the end of the business day.

Thank you,
