What our customers are saying:
“The first module, Managing Cross Cultural Relationships,
has caused so many lively discussions within our department. The class has
reinvigorated our department! At the risk of using a cliché, I think our
departmental "paradigm" has shifted in reference to some ongoing
challenges. On a personal note, I have made a conscientious effort to change my
style of writing/communicating with several of my customers as a result of what
I learned these past four weeks. To my delight, it has made a big difference
with a customer I have been struggling with in Vietnam. I look forward
to the next classes!” Leigh
