MKM provides tailored coaching programs for corporate executives who are caught in the midst of transition, looking to gain clarity and confidence in negotiating personal and professional challenges.
In an article published in the January 2012 edition of the Harvard Business Review (HBR) titled, “Three Skills Every 21st-Century Manager Needs”, Andrew L. Molinsky, an associate professor of organizational behaviuor at Brandeis University’s International Business School asserted,
“Being culturally fluent means being able to enter a new context, master the norms, and feel comfortable doing so. In situations where executives perceive a serious threat to their competence and identity, they often show a strong psychological resistance to appropriate behavior. Learning to be effective at cultural code-switching is the key to becoming a truly global leader.”
At MKM, we facilitate and support the transition with effective cross-cultural mastery training and executive coaching. We invite the coachees to appreciate cultural differences and to develop an intuitive awareness of subtle nuances between different cultures.
We have helped expatriates master the ins and outs of cross-cultural interaction, with an emphasis on business etiquette and cultural parameters such as the Power Distance Index (PDI), collectivist and individualist societal systems, harmony and conflict, and uncertainty avoidance.
