Cross Cultural Training: Living and working in Sweden
Success in a new culture requires an understanding of values, behaviours and attitudes as well as a working knowledge of social and business protocol and etiquette. Our cultural background has a strong impact on our behavior and communication. Cross-cultural competence is a powerful tool to improve communication and business. BBi Communication offers Cross-Cultural Training in order to prepare expatriates for the different challenges that moving abroad can cause, and to give tools to understand and handle the Swedish business culture. Our online workshop will facilitate integration into Swedish culture and reduce unnecessary cultural shocks.
