Be Hofstede CWQ Certified

Hofstede Culture In The Workplace Questionnaire™ (Hofstede CWQ) Certification Program

Why cross-culture?

There is little doubt that globalization has changed the face of business. Traditionally, people working across cultures were either business travelers going to different countries or expatriates living in countries that were not their own.

Today, the implication goes far beyond. People working across cultures are often local workforce, living in their own country and interacting virtually with people from other countries – countries they may have never visited or had any exposure to. This necessitates attention on developing the skill set needed to work with international stakeholders in a complex, cross-border, multicultural environment.

Certification is a transformative experience for me. I’ve been doing global business for over 15 years, dealing with people from all over the world.
