At Cultural Fluency we work with leaders and professionals in international organizations to understand and value cultural differences so that they can work, communicate and negotiate effectively across cultural boundaries and succeed in the global marketplace. Simply put: we help leaders, managers and professionals from different cultures work together effectively.
Our core belief underpinning all our work is that cultural fluency is the key to business success in the global marketplace. Whether you are a Japanese business person trying to understand and deal with Americans or Australians, or vice versa, cultural fluency means developing the ability to understand the cultural assumptions upon which the behavior and thinking of your international colleagues rests. Of equal importance is the ability to understand the myriad of subtle and not-so-subtle ways we are all influenced by our own culture.
Culture is something that is perceived and felt - an intangible. Characteristics considered an individual's strengths by one culture could be viewed as weaknesses by a different culture. Our job at Cultural Fluency is to remove the enigma that surrounds culture and turn it to a known and measurable quantifier so that international organizations can achieve outstanding business results.
