This is my first time working for an overseas company. I appreciate that our company takes the time to teach us and make us aware of the importance of cultural differences. Not only does it help us in our daily work, but it makes me feel that our company is aware that we need to understand what we may not know about others and prepare us for future challenges.

At MovingWorlds, we help people volunteer their skills around the world, on their own time or through corporate sponsored programs. In these programs, we use GlobeSmart to not only help people be more effective in their international skilled volunteering trips, but also to grow as more innovative and capable leaders. We consistently hear from our “Experteers” that the cultural assessment helps create a foundation for a positive impact, and the lessons from it stay with our members for years to follow. We can’t recommend this tool – and the team behind it – enough!

In addition to this being a wonderful team building experience, the learning program provided an opportunity for our two teams to gain a deep understanding of each teams’ needs, philosophy and expectations. Through this program we identified weaknesses in our standard processes and highlighted challenges that may occur due to diverse communication styles as well as ways to address them.

Aperian Global and this training have been one of the best experiences I’ve had in my almost thirty years of service. I wish we had the opportunity to have this type of training years ago, but is never too late to learn new skills!

Aperian Global has helped us to accelerate the development of hundreds of our high potential employees, the key people we need to grow our business and retain for our future. The long-term development process we have designed together with Aperian Global employs many different learning methods and has had a tangible business impact. People in the program have the opportunity to exchange ideas with our top executives, and many of those who have been through the program have already been promoted and are performing well at the next level.
-Regional Director, Talent Development
I can work with anybody I want to in the global leadership area, and I choose to work with Aperian Global because of the quality of their thought leadership, their creative partnership in program design, and their facilitation skills. They are smart, responsive, work well with our team, and have helped our executives to understand global markets, customers, and colleagues in a much deeper way.
-Director, Leadership Development
GlobeSmart is one of the smartest decisions we’ve made. Our executive team fully supports the tool and we’ve been able to leverage their glowing review in encouraging employees to make use of all the tool has to offer.
The program brought fresh perspective to the group and helped us understand below the surface beliefs, values, and orientations of multiple cultures. I especially appreciated the pre-work that was done to tailor a vast amount of material to our specific needs.

The program has been a turning point for our team and also for me in understanding how I need to adapt to be the leader they need. This workshop really opens your eyes.

Indeed the training was a great experience for all of us, especially the girls. After the training our oldest daughter for the first time said she was looking forward to moving to the US. We’ve learned a lot about American culture and how to behave in business. Thanks for a great program which I can highly recommend to other expats.
