Successfully Managing Different Cultures

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

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

Bill’s commitment is to provide the highest level of intercultural understanding, insights, and information to clients.  

To manage someone, you need to understand their cultural background.  Otherwise you are trying to manage them virtually “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”. When they see that you as a manager understand their culture and their “cultural comfort zone”, they will tend to respect you more as a manager. 

 Our training can also include how to build and manage a multicultural team of employees. 

We enhance the value of this seminar by incorporating  in the seminar the highly regarded Cultural Comparison Tool that has been used by 75% of the Fortune 500 companies. This intercultural tool enables clients to see where they will have significant cultural gaps with individuals from one/more specific countries and recommends the adaptive behaviours they should use.

Complimentary Post-Training Support 

For our clients who have asked us for a customized seminar, we provide complimentary post-training support to make sure they achieve the highest possible ROI from their investment in cross-cultural training from our company. Specifically: Implementation Coaching; Monthly Cultural Events Report; and Cultural Profiles.

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,
