WE OBSERVED AND ABSORBED
We observed and absorbed the vast changes in the world of Business Etiquette and International Protocol. We’re ready to meet those new challenges with our up-to-the minute online and onsite programs. Our goal is to ensure your success anywhere in the world!
HUMANITY IN A STATE OF SHOCK
March 2020 was a month that will not soon be forgotten. Humanity across the globe was in a state of shock, disbelief and fear of contracting Covid-19. Priorities shifted from success in business to cheering our medical heroes from our balconies. Nothing was more important than survival. It was both heartbreaking and heartwarming seeing true human kindness and resilience at its best.
COMPANIES EMERGED FROM THE “FOG OF COVID-19”
Slowly, but surely, like many other companies, The International Protocol Institute of California® emerged from the “fog of covid-19.” Through a process of observing and absorbing the new realities, we set about reinventing our programs to be ready to meet the challenges of our new world of diminished travel, stay-at-home workforce and precise re-opening protocols.
WHAT DOES THE BUSINESS OF PROTOCOL & DIPLOMACY LOOK LIKE NOW?
In completing this task, we asked: what does business, international protocol and diplomacy look like now? How long will these changes be around and will things ever get back to normal? The general consensus was that, while things may return to relative normalcy, this pandemic will forever change how business is conducted on a global scale.
At the core of all of our new programs will be consideration for:
- Safety Protocols when returning to the workplace.
- Communication platforms such as Zoom, skype and everything between.
- Conducting effective meetings online.
- Leading and motivating your team virtually.
- International travel from arrivals to departures.
- Communication shifts and updated emotional intelligence skills.
- The new technology involved in the hybrid of online and onsite events.

The goal is to succeed in a new cultural environment and avoid an international incident. To ease your team’s transition to a host country, we research and create a customized cultural orientation video to ensure their smooth assimilation into their new environment.
A breakdown in communications can often be attributed to cultural misunderstandings. Unfortunately, this may progress to serious legal consequence for one or both parties.
