Corporate Cultural Training for Russian Speaking Expats in the USA

yay-2856219InterStar Translations offers a 1 day onsite corporate cross-cultural training seminar for Russian expats in the USA.

Moving into a new country, even temporarily, is never easy. According to the Holmes and Rahe stress scale for adults the level of stress may be 20 out of possible 100, but it may also be exacerbated by other factors.

If your company brings Russian speaking employees to the United States, helping them adjust to the new culture is only fair.

The management, colleagues and other employees, however, may be too busy with their routine duties, and sometimes the issues that expats may face are very subtle and difficult to pinpoint. The role of a cross cultural consultant is to identify such weak spots, act as a go between or a messenger between two cultures.

Such basic notions as perception of time, quality, friendship, openness may be significantly different and it is the job of a professional cultural consultant to explain the difference. When you become aware of it, many actions, words and strategies your colleagues are using may be seen in a different light.

Sometimes, miscommunication happens not because people disagree in principle, but because they use different cultural reference frames.

Corporate cultural training by InterStar Translations will help your Russian speaking managers, programmers, operators understand better various cross cultural concepts and how they can be used effectively in the US business environment.

Russian speaking employees face a variety of very specific challenges, such as a different understanding of work/home balance, friendship, of how to interact with their managers and subordinates.
