Why investing in the International social competencies of executives and teams?
In any team meeting, negotiation, acquisition, or integration of companies we deal with our cultural gaps.
Understanding cultural differencies and being able to adapt the way we communicate is the foundation of any successful International business.
When companies run an International business national borders disappear, cultural gaps open and the scope for misunderstandings and conflicts widens.
Every day we are hearing stories about arrogant foreign bosses making unreasonable demands; counterparts who seam to take a real plaseure in being obstructive or devious; audiences who unexpectedly react to a proposal with hostility and agression. It is time to do something about it.
Which is the method used by ICB&B?
- Most of the companies have the potential to Internationalize but experience problems in action or are hesitant to Internationalize because they miss a method and experience.
- The method used by ICB&B is both procedural and relational. The client and ICB&B create an operative and generative partnership that allows the client to chose autonomously the smart goals and execute robustly designed International plans of actions.
- ICB&B does not mentor companies nor supply ready to use prescriptions for Internationailzation. Every company and business is on a tailored plan of action using his own potential and resources.
