CultureWizard – Online Intercultural Training Tools and Courses
RW3 CultureWizard’s online cultural training tools are designed to create cultural awareness of the importance of culture, everyday business life and illustrate the profound impact that culture has on people’s values, beliefs and behavior. They also define, through the use of our cultural model, readily recognizable behaviors that are an indication of deeply held cultural values. As a result, users of the program understand, appreciate and are able to adjust to the cultural signals they’re given.
