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!
-Mark Horoszowski, CEO of MovingWorlds.org
I found Thriving in Brazil to be one of the best training classes I have ever had in my automotive career. I downloaded a huge amount of information and I feel significantly more comfortable with what to expect. The Aperian Global trainers are worth their weight in gold.
-Senior Specialist, Automotive Industry
Frankly, this training class never felt like one – despite all the great learning….I really appreciate all the efforts [the facilitator] put into understanding my situation and needs accurately and addressing them so meticulously.
-Thriving in a New Culture (US) Participant
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.
-Vice President & General Manager Asia, Automotive Industry
The topics and the way they were approached were relevant and meaningful. I was very pleased with the clarifications about culture and its impact on an individual. I can see that there is serious extensive research carried out on the matter and the results reveal a scientific explanation to how we feel in a different culture.
-Working Effectively with India Participant
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!
-Virtual Country Briefing Participant
Many of our mid-level managers in fast-growth markets have strong technical capabilities and are successful in their local market, but lack the skills and the networks to function effectively in a broader leadership context. Aperian Global’s program enables them to take on greater regional and global responsibilities. They gain more visibility, a wider network, better skills for communicating and influencing in matrix roles, and the ability to integrate global and local priorities.
-Country Director, Talent Development
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.
