    Today’s global economic climate is dictating more than ever that business decisions will be based as much on the quality of the product and service promised as by the people element of the business.

    Deborah works to identify and rectify blockages, build empathy between members of staff of different nationalities and from different cultural backgrounds, overcome cross-cultural problems/misunderstandings and creates a strong set of shared values. She helps develop such personal attributes as:

    * Curiosity about other cultures
    * Acceptance that there are other people of different backgrounds equal to yours.
    * Tolerance of ambiguity when you are not sure of the outcome or the communication flow
    * Flexibility in looking for alternative solutions to provide a win-win solution to disagreement
    * Empathy in being able to see a situation from the other person’s point of view
    * Ability to adapt your use of language to the level of the other person and to develop strategies to improve essential fluency

    In addition, Deborah’s approach will help you to get more out of meetings, to make team presentations that work, and to engage and motivate your key staff.

    That's a really interesting post Deborah. But why are you talking in third person? I also don't know how "Curiosity about other cultures" can help in getting more out of meetings, to make team presentations that work, and to engage and motivate your key staff.
