The oil rich states of the Arabian Gulf have experienced unprecedented growth. This is in contrast to the financial constraints in many of the world’s other economies and so there is an increase in interest in living and working in this stable area within the Middle East.
Qatar’s introduction to the international stage is being experienced on several fronts – from the political via their involvement in the Libyan crisis, to being named the hosts of the 2022 World Cup. Due to the small number of the national population, Qatar has always been a diverse living and working environment with people from literally all corners of the world. For those who are new to the Middle East, the move can seem overwhelming in the face of the evening news reports; but the reality is thousands of expats make their home all over the Gulf.
Most people don’t know very much about the Middle East and even less about this kidney sized shaped peninsula just above Saudi Arabia. Navigating the customs, culture, and traditions of the general Arab culture within a multinational context can be very challenging. What is considered culturally appropriate? What could be potentially offensive? “Living and Working in Qatar” is the first step to answering these questions.
I am an American who has lived in Qatar for six years and I've joined forces with Margarita Gokun Silver from the Global Coach Center to create the “LIVING AND WORKING IN QATAR” course, which:
• provides you with a foundation of what Qatar is all about
I. If you simply want to learn about the do's and don'ts of the country, you can, in fact, buy a book or search through a variety of internet resources. However, if you want to know how to successfully interact with people, if you want to learn what motivates them, if you want to learn how to manage them effectively, you need to know their prevalent cultural blueprint. And you need to know your own cultural blueprint.
You won't find that on the internet either.

HOW MUCH DOES THE COURSE COST?
Cross-Cultural training is usually expensive — it can run anywhere between $500 and $2000 dollars — and that’s why most of the time your company would have to provide it. Yet companies often decide to economize on this part of the expatriate experience and very few expats get the benefit of a real cross-cultural training.
Business travelers and companies doing business in Qatar almost never get the benefit of a cross-cultural training. Yet this training is essential to their success.
That's why we have created this online course and that's why we are making it affordable. The training we are offering you on-line is available for $199. This includes FREE short e-mail consultations with the course creators in the first 30 days after purchasing the course.
