Communicate Effectively Across Cultures with our efficient programs for expats
Berlitz can help your company face the challenges of doing business globally and in specific countries. Cultural differences can contribute to decreased productivity and cause misunderstandings and conflicts. The Berlitz Intercultural tools are designed for managers of multicultural teams, expats, frequent business travelers, short-term assignees, and others who do business in an unfamiliar region or country and want to optimize their cross-cultural skills.
Berlitz Expatriation Coaching programs
The Berlitz Expatriation Coaching programs deal with the unique set of challenges caused by international relocation.
The training modules touch upon topics such as: adapting to a new culture, relocating families, attaining professional goals in a changing political and social structure, and other hurdles unique to each individual.
Coaching for Expatriates
A non-trained expat could seriously endanger your ROI as they may take up to one year to adjust and fully perform. The expatriation coaching training program allows expatriates to quickly leverage their cultural sensitivity, develop skills to perform in the new international business environment and avoid the stress caused by cultural misunderstandings.
Berlitz delivers also programs and learning plans for learning Bulgarian for foreigners – One-to-One flexible programs or Small Group courses.
Coaching for Expatriates’ Families
One the most common reasons for the failure of an expatriation is poor family adjustment. The dissatisfaction of partners and children can bring an assignee’s time abroad to a premature end. Our coaching programs for spouses and children aim at mentoring and accompanying the family members to be effective and satisfied in the new country.
The special programs for Bulgarian for foreigners are focusing on the speaking abilities of the learner in everyday situations.
