We address objectives such as these in our global leadership training programs:

  • Anticipating the constraints inherent in one's home-grown management style.
  • Collaborating productively with, and effectively influencing, one's global counterparts.
  • Acquiring cultural competence for responding empathetically to mindset differences.
  • Gaining simulated experience with a variety of communication and relationship styles.
  • Becoming familiar with the business practices and cultural styles of targeted nations.
  • Leveraging a mix of human differences to attain high performing global teams.

Two basic types of global leadership training:

  1. Culture-general training introduces the “culture concept.” This refers to the way culture is understood by anthropologists, interculturalists, and others who study culture professionally.
  2. Culture-specific training addresses the interactions among people from different cultural backgrounds (e.g., French and Chinese). This training enables participants to develop new behaviors and skills for productive work-related and social interactions.

Culture-general training may be delivered on a stand-alone basis. However, global businesses need leaders in one specific culture to be effective and productive in daily interactions with counterparts in another specific culture.

Therefore, immediately applicable training begins with culture-general training because it introduces the culture concept. It continues with culture-specific training because it addresses ways of building trust, communicating effectively, and leading convincingly across boundaries.


GROVEWELL’s trainers have years of experience living & working abroad as well as leading teams and units of global corporations. Many have held senior posts with P&L responsibility. Most are bi- or trilingual. Almost all have undergone formal preparation in training and/or coaching.

Therefore, our trainers are able to bring experience-honed wisdom to leadership training engagements. They also bring "heart." They insure that participants practice using a global mindset and applying competencies that are effective in their target regions.

Unlike most other global leadership training offerings, GROVEWELL's programs are deliberately crafted to be global. Our leadership training is not a “Made-in-America” product exported for consumption globally.
