As the world talks about mature offshore markets, India buzzes as a growing economy capitalizing on its demographic dividend.
If you are here because you
Whatever the reasons, the common denominator is that you are going to interact in a culture that is different. Moving to another country is like dipping yourself in a new environment, with different sensors. Would it help you if you understood the Indian YES?
When you move across countries with a foundation of the cultural value system of the new country you will be able to handle the stress & frustrations that come with cultural difference.
My name is Deepa Natarajan. I am Indian. I spent the early years of my life in Chandigarh [a city in the north of India, designed by the French architect and planner, Le Corbusier]. Each summer I visited my grandparents in Chennai, a city I found strange and different. At the age of 14, I moved to Chennai. Everything changed, the food, the clothing, the climate, the habits of people & the traditions. At 14, I experienced the complex diversity of Indian culture. In the next 20 years, I grew to love Chennai, culturally very different from Chandigarh. Since then I found that moving to another country, interacting with people from other cultures comes to me very easily & naturally.
I moved on to work in the silicon valley of India that took me around the world on business. The business aspects & extended stays in North America and Europe exponentially contributed to my cultural learning. Having worked in North America and Europe I realized that each time the plane lands and takes off from India I automatically turn my cerebral inside out.
My travel and work, drew me to the south of France as an expatriate, where I now live and work as a global strategic consultant, trainer and coach with a passion to promote cross cultural effectiveness. I work with executives and managers in multinational organizations from the stage of writing the Offshoring business plan to executing, designing transformations and closing projects. At RShore, I bring personalized methodologies to manage uncertainty & cut through complexities to deliver results.
In this course I am going to talk to you about my country through an outside lens, as an expatriate in France and after having lived and worked in India for 32 years.
As a founder of RShore, with an experience of having worked with Americans, Canadians, French, British and Japanese I talk about India through your eyes, as you see it. I am thankful to Margarita Gokun Silver for putting forth this brilliant course structure and together we created a “Welcome to Living and Working in India course – the course that:
• provides you with a foundation of what India 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
...you want to learn what motivates them
...you want to learn how to manage them effectively,
...you want to know how to communicate and how not to communicate,
you'll need to know their prevalent cultural blueprint as well as your own! Both will become clear to you as you test yourself through our Culture Mastery Module's 11 cultural variables and then compare your score with that of the country you are going to.
This depth of information isn't available on the internet.
You won't find that on the internet either.

HOW MUCH DOES THE COURSE COST 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 India 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.
