You have been hired by a well-known international company and are now a member of a multicultural team. You worked hard to improve your communicative English skills and it has paid-off. However, your learning has just begun. Effective intercultural communication requires much more than the ability to speak the same language as your colleagues. Likewise, recognizing and understanding differences in values, thought patterns, expectations and motivations is just the first step toward becoming an effective member of your team.
You must distinguish 2 types of training: cross cultural training and intercultural training. Cross-cultural training is to help people from one culture adapt to another while Intercultural training helps people understand how to adapt to people of different cultures
Cross Cultural training in Vietnam is strongly recommended because working with Vietnameses is very challenging and is a practice that has proven itself over time. It allows managers to perform well in a new cultural environment. Indeed, working in a new country can severely challenge even the most effective leaders as they find the management skills, styles, and techniques that drove their success back home, don’t work with their new teams. Thus, cross-cultural trainings in Vietnam are highly recommended for a good integration and adaptation in Vietnam both professionally and personally.
By being educated on cross-culture, assignees will be able to recognize how culture influences behavior of peers and direct reports, to understand their own personal cultural preferences and how it affects their behavior, and to develop strategies for adapting their behaviors for effective interactions.
Intercultural training is recommended if you are going to work in a multinational team to manage and adapt as well as possible with your future colleagues, partners or collaborators.
