Training objectives and advantages
This training creates the awareness needed to understand what makes Russia tick and how one can use the Russian-Western differences to one’s benefit.

Training program
Foreign managers in Russia face challenges that are particular to Russian culture and the Russian business environment.
Problems arise when foreign managers are unaware of how Russian culture and the Russian business environment influence the work floor.
This training creates the awareness needed to understand what makes Russia tick and how one can use the Russian-Western differences to one’s benefit.

The training will help foreign managers to decode:
• Russian culture
• The Russian business environment
• Russian Management Practices
• Russian Negotiation style
• It will also help you to enjoy and appreciate Russia

The training is based on 25 years of managerial and entrepreneurial experience in Russia. The main principles of the training are that: “Every day in Russia is different, unpredictable, controversial and relative”, “Whatever you say about Russia, the opposite is always true as well”, “Everything is situational and fluid”, “Awareness leads to understanding; understanding leads to acceptance; and acceptance allows foreigners to overcome and use our differences instead of fighting them”, “build personal relationships”, “enjoy Russia!”.

Are you a Russian manager and you want to onboard your foreign colleague as quickly and effectively as possible? Then get your foreign colleague to follow this training.

Methodology of training delivery
The Ketting method combines practical and applicable leadership and communication techniques that are based on the Value Based Leadership and the Value Based Communication concepts that were developed during the 25 years of Russian-Western entrepreneurship.
