Online Cross-Cultural Course

by Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar and Margarita Gokun Silver

Arrow_red_curved  Are you an expat, who is working or going to work in Qatar, and whose company doesn't offer cross-cultural training?

Arrow_red_curved  Are your opening an office in Qatar and need your staff to be knowledgeable about dealing with the Qatari?

Arrow_red_curved  Do you regularly work with the Qatari? 

Arrow_red_curved  Do you have clients and partners in Qatar?


If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then "Living and Working in Qatar" course is for you.

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.

This course --

  • provides you with a foundation of what Qatar is all about;
  • helps you, through the Culture Mastery process, to understand the gap between your way of thinking and the Qatari way of thinking;
  • provides extensive tools to negotiate the cultural differences; and
  • blends cross-cultural information with a coaching approach to understanding and becoming successful in any culture.

This course can be used as:

Arrow_reda self-assessment program that potential expatriates can take to decide if moving to Qatar will work for them and their families


Arrow_reda full cross-cultural course that offers expats and business leaders information they need to succeed in Qatar

Arrow_reda license for coaches/trainers/consultants and HR who want to help their clients/staff succeed in Qatar


So whether you are already living in Qatar, preparing to move there, working with the Qatari virtually, or taking business trips — you can take "LIVING AND WORKING IN QATAR" course and know what awaits you and how to deal with it.



Two reasons:


Number1If 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; if you want to learn how to communicate and how not to communicate -- you need to know their prevalent cultural blueprint. And you need to know your own cultural blueprint. Both will become clear to you as you test yourself through our course's 11 cultural variables and then compare your score with that of the country you are going to.


This depth of information is not available on the internet.


Number2Once you know your cultural blueprint and their cultural blueprint -- and once you compare the two -- you will discover gaps.  Our course teaches you how to negotiate those gaps with the use of Culture Mastery Process based on:

    • the co-active coaching model
    • the neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) tools
    • the systems and relationship approach
You won't find that on the internet either.


This “LIVING AND WORKING IN QATAR” is a multimedia course and consists of eight (8) chapters of information, a video file, and an audio podcast:

This is a wealth of information! And it’s available to you anytime, anywhere and for the fraction of the cost.



Cross-Cultural training is usually expensive — it can run anywhere between $500 and $2000 dollars — and that’s why most of the time a 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 creator(s) in the first 30 days after purchasing the course.
