Cross Cultural Needs Assessment & Quiz
The attached needs assessment is designed for people who are doing
business in foreign countries that have languages and cultures that
are significantly different from Canada’s. When an organization
is doing business in foreign markets, there are two learning focuses:

requirements; secondly, the people component, including language,
culture, business practices, values, decision making locus, etc.
We focus on the people component.
Whether you are entertaining foreign business delegates, visiting
foreign counterparts’ operations, or are preparing to be an
expatriate, our services are designed to enable you and your business

to build better relationships with foreign counterparts, and to
enhance your professionalism and prosperity in the global village.

cultural expert in six weeks. But, we can make considerable progress
towards the above goals depending on how much time you are able
to devote to training

fact, we would recommend some survival language skills too.

in communicating effectively cross-culturally. Both assessments
are for your use, but if you would like to hand it in to us, we
would be happy to meet with you to discuss your needs in a free
