I find that most leadership recognizes the importance of cross-culturalism, but stop short of actually taking action. Teams and leadership need practical skills and situational coaching--results and better communications will soon follow.
Kia Motors America (a division of the Hyundai Kia Motor Group) does a great job providing their teams with Korean cross-cultural support. This includes Korean culture training for new employees and ongoing Korean cross-cultural workshops for the team.
Most recently I shared my insights to a group of summer interns working at the KMA headquarters in Irvine, California. I strongly recommend all Korea facing firms follow Kia Motors’ forward thinking and proactive approach to global business. BCW offers a full range of programs to meet your needs.
