Developing a global mindset for NORDEN’s trainees

For several years, NORDEN has chosen to include the development of a global mindset in NORDEN’s internal Trainee Programme.

To reach this goal, C3 Consulting has conducted a one-day workshop for each new team of trainees.

The tailored workshops have focused on providing NORDEN's trainees with:

  • an increased awareness and understanding of their own culture and other cultures
  • a more global mindset
  • strengthened cross-cultural communication and collaboration skills
  • tools to build good working relationships globally

NORDEN manager prepared for assignment in India

As one of NORDEN’s managers was relocating to India, C3 designed an individual cultural training programme preparing him for the new professional challenges:

"The seminar with Line Mark Rugholt was tailored to the DS Norden employee who is relocating to Mumbai, and to the tasks that await him in his day-to-day internal and external work.

It gave a great insight in how to manage Indian employees as well as how to negotiate contracts with Indian businesses and which culturally-based misunderstandings might arise."
