This course can be used as:
Recently I was fortunate to return to and live in Russia for an amazing 4 years. The country has changed so dramatically that at first I didn’t recognize it. But then, as I started coaching expatriates, I began to come across things that were very familiar.
My clients were stressed, frustrated, and in many cases even angry at the effects that living in Russia was producing in them.
My job is to coach professionals on expatriate and cross-cultural matters. Success and happiness while abroad and out of your own “element” is what we focus on in coaching. And as I worked with client after client in Russia I began to notice something — those clients who came to the country with a foundation of a cross-cultural training fared better in their levels of stress and frustration than those who came without it.
That’s when I decided to expand into cross-cultural training. Having the benefit of truly knowing Russia and also seeing it from the point of view of an outsider, I knew I could help expats from many different countries and so…
I created a “LIVING AND WORKING IN RUSSIA” course — the course that:
When I started these trainings in-person, I soon realized that I can help only a handful of people, if I limit it to the in-person format. And that’s why I decided to make “LIVING AND WORKING IN RUSSIA” available on line.
So whether you are living in Russia, preparing to move there, or only take business trips — you can take “LIVING AND WORKING IN RUSSIA” course and know what awaits you and how to deal with it.
We often get asked: why would I buy this course if I can find information on the internet for free?
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; 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. See discussion of some of these variables in an article on Expatica -- Tips for understanding the Russians.
This depth of information is not available on the internet.
II. Once 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:

HOW MUCH DOES IT 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 Russia 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.
