What is Cross-Cultural Training Program

No formal definition of cross-cultural training is present, possibly pointing to its occasionally quite extensive interpretations and applications. However, overall most efforts to define this area of training concur on similar points, namely that it's any type of training course that concentrates on aspects of culture and cultural differences.

Many interpretations see this as relating only to national cultures, i.e. Chinese, Chinese, Korean, etc but technically it can refer to some type of cultural difference, state regional, generational or business culture.

Nearly all formal, commercialized cultural training concentrates on cross cultural differences in business, such as etiquette, communication or direction. Other cross-cultural training can happen in the public sector, state for those working in/with diverse communities, in addition to in the army, NGOs, sports and hospitality.

To put it simply, cross-cultural training means any training that helps people overcome cultural challenges in work or in life when interacting with other people whose culture, beliefs and values we aren't fully aware. Many organization also arrange face-to-face cross cultural seminars and online training program to provide more flexibility and better learning.

Why do you need cross-cultural training?

It helps people overcome prejudice and bias that could potentially prevent them from making great decisions. It enhances communication skills and softer skills like emotional intelligence. It increases trust between individuals as it helps break down barriers.

It helps people get together and focus on more important matters such as a Doctor giving the ideal identification, a negotiator getting that sought after touch or a charity employee showing the right esteem when doing aid work in arbitrary areas of the world.

What are the different forms of cross-cultural training?

Occasionally they come under different names like Intercultural Training, Cultural Competence, Diversity Training or cultural consciousness. They may be very close in appearance, feel and content or can be quite different depending on whether they're pre-designed training courses or bespoke solutions.

Generally cross-cultural training can be split into two unique areas - Nation focused vs Ability concentrated. Country-focused training is only going to look at one (or a few) civilizations, i.e. Chinese, Japanese, Turkish. The content will appear at specific regions of the culture whether that be etiquette, communication or discussion.

Ability focused training on the other hands is a more generic sort of course that looks at areas like communication, management, persuasion, leadership, negotiation, sales, etc and addresses cultural differences within that frame. There very well could be country-specific information or there might not, since these classes are more about developing curved skills instead of focusing on a single culture.
