So are you...
The UK is a small island with a big international presence. London, alongside New York is one of the worlds’ largest financial centres and has the largest number of international visitors of any city in the world.
Comprised of four countries and home to over two hundred different nationalities the UK has a truly international representation. And with this in mind I invite you to develop your understanding of the country that resides beneath this international profile.
What are the cultural norms, beliefs and values of the typical person from the UK? This programme provides a general overview and useful insights. These are offered as a starting point for your personal cultural discovery.
Understanding a national culture has been described as being a bit like peeling an onion, you reveal one layer only to discover another. Part of that discovery involves understanding your own cultural origins, beliefs and values, reflecting on the similarities and differences and developing strategies for bridging or negotiating the gaps. This course will help you do exactly that.
My name is Louise Wiles and I am British, English in fact. I have lived abroad for most of the last 14 years and am currently living in Portugal. Through my business, Success Abroad Coaching, I provide support to people relocating, helping them to overcome the challenges of relocation enabling them to build successful and happy lives in their new locations.
Arriving in a new country is always exciting but at the same time disorientating. I know from personal experience. I also know that it can take time to develop an understanding and appreciation for the new culture. Success abroad is facilitated through developing appropriate coping strategies and cultural intelligence and this is why I have joined forces with Margarita Gokun Silver from the Global Coach Center to offer this course on Living and Working in the UK -- the course that:
• provides you with a foundation of what the UK 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 the UK 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.
