vickiThe "Living and Working in the USA" program offers a comprehensive foundation for trainers to educate and inform expatriates. The Train-The-Trainer program is well coordinated and engaging, and provides perspectives on the US culture, language, and business nuances. The cross cultural training sessions are participative in nature, and the materials are well organized, concise and professional.
 JayneAs a participating learner I found the concepts, tools, practice and application very informative and effective for driving understanding and transition of cultural norms. As a native of the USA I found the definitions of cultural norms, business and social practices, and language aspects to be very on target!  As a professional Trainer/Facilitator I found the curricula design, workshop activities and supporting tools and materials to be of high quality.  The ability to access information through the website makes ongoing reference and understanding effective as well.  Margarita and Jennifer conducted interactive and engaging training, and accommodated the participants’ needs very well.


So whether you are already living in the US, preparing to move there, work with the US virtually, or take business trips — you can take  LIVING AND WORKING IN THE USA 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 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 the US 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 in the first 30 days after purchasing the course.
