Efficiency and Effectiveness in Global Business

Your company's decision-makers recognized a decade or two ago that global business would require the real-time collaboration of people in far-flung corners of the world.  They acquired, and continue to acquire, the latest I.T. advances so that your company has the capability to integrate key players worldwide with breathtaking efficiency.

Right now, however, we are not talking about global business efficiency.

We're talking about cultural competency development leading to global business effectiveness.

How globally effective are your firm's key players?  To what extent does their current global-mindedness enable them, with counterparts unlike themselves,...

  • to share meanings, insights, and intentions with accuracy?
  • to develop and maintain productive teams and networks?
  • to influence others and reach mutually respected agreements?
  • to build integrated systems that will enhance your global market-share?
  • to intentionally be effective in providing leadership for others from abroad?

And to what extent are your managers able to recognize and contextually interpret new opportunities and challenges when these arise within other social systems and cultures?

The extent to which a company's key managers possess a global mindset is a critical competitive advantage today, when not only competitors, but also collaborators, turn up in distant and poorly understood world regions.

Our Solution: An On-Site, Year-Long, Three-Component Program

For over a quarter century, GROVEWELL has contributed to the development of global mindsets among executives, managers, and other business professionals, many of whom were on an expatriate assignment.

That kind of long-term living and working experience, when supported by the kind of learning that we provide, does enable most expats to return home with a far more global-minded perspective.

But expat assignments must be supplemented with some other way of building global mindsets that's far less expensive.

That's why we've developed a program that will enable American managers to build, or to enhance, their cultural competency and ability to flexibly adapt...without leaving home.

Our three-component on-site program combines...

  • cultural self-study experiences
  • in-community experiences
  • in-company experiences

...all interrelated through small-group coaching and facilitation, and customized for the specific global objectives of your company or business unit.
