January 25-26, 2017
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
One study estimates that 85% of success in business is determined by communication skills. A Harvard Business Review survey showed that readers ranked communication skills as the most important factor when considering someone for promotion. Additionally, today’s business environment is increasingly global in scope, making cross-cultural communication issues more important than ever before.
In addition to providing participants core communication skills, this course provides tools for financial professionals who work with colleagues and clients internationally. The course shows you how to communicate the right information the right way, especially financial information. It will also help you understand how people from other cultures approach context (high vs. low context), how to work with people with different decision making approaches (consensual vs. top down) and how to deal with people who handle disagreements differently (confrontational vs. non-confrontational).
