Global Best Practices: 

How to Establish Industry Leading Standards through Cross-Cultural Focus Groups 

It's no secret. Focus groups foster participation, innovation and productivity. Group dynamics also tend to boost morale and create stronger teams. In addition, the International Association for Contract and Communicative Management acknowledges the value of specialty focus groups. In particular, IACCM cites cross-cultural focus groups as an essential element for developing best-in-class service standards.

The WeAre1 Program is a patented six-step model designed by William Sinunu to solicit and value quality input from diverse focus groups. 

The WeAre1 Model: 

W-Who are the participants?
E- Encourage Dialogue
A- Acknowledge Hurdles
R- Restructure E- Enact the Plan
1- 1 Team Moving Forward 

Global Niches: 

Fill Intercultural Communication Gaps by Effectively Managing Cross-Cultural Communication Hurdles 

This innovative program provides insights and tools to understand cross-cultural barriers and then, master them. In addition, the program analyzes the four primary obstacles to effective multicultural communication and tips to overcome them. The Harvard Business Review said it clearly and distinctly. The publication emphasizes the ability to understand and overcome the primary hurdles to cross-cultural communication as an essential skill for unifying a diverse organization. 

This training will detail the following four cross cultural communication hurdles:

  • Unique intercultural communication styles
  • Fluency issues
  • Perceptions of hierarchy
  • Conflicting norms for decision making
