Cultural awareness and its relevance in current relationships

We live in a global and multicultural environment where we may interact with professionals of different culture than ours, thus the need to adapt both within and outside of companies in intercultural terms.

In this context, intercultural skills are critical for individual and organizational success; they contribute to the creation of “ global leadership skills” which benefit an entire company or organization.
