Happy New Year 2023! We are still in transition, but with a new website upcoming. What is 3stones Consulting? The three stones are translation, training and cultural mediation (minimising misunderstanding and building communication).

Edtech - R&D phase

Cultural mediation Edtech in formation! 

Embracing differences on behalf of sustainability and innovation partnerships. Helping businesses transcend geopolitical tensions by utilising cross-cultural communication and management insight and tools (with a focus on contradiction and paradox management).

At the heart of the company: The Art of Relationships 

"Relationship skills and networks are our gold"

Knowledge can be studied, but skill must be acquired. And true skill is only learned via practice! We provide experience-based live training via which personal cross-cultural communication & management skills can be practiced in a psychologically safe setting - before stepping out into the real world. For both Nordic to China and China to Nordic transitions!

In practical terms, are you transitioning from

-a high hierarchy context (China) or to a low hierarchy context (Nordics)? 

-direct communication culture (Nordics) or indirect (China)?

-individualist or collectivist?

...Or a mixture of the above (company-level cultures)?

How to style switch? It is possible. As a first step, it is essential to map your unique personal style and cultural preferences. Let's meet for tea and take the first step, creating a training strategy together (This first step is free). 

Our training experiences can be produced at, for example, a lake-side cottage, startup office, teahouse or boardroom! Would you like a simulated startup interview? Some boardroom drama? Intrigue at the legal office? Guidance through a tricky management scenario where two management styles collide? We bring in live actors, create a tailored setting for experiencing different communication and management styles... and guide you through strategic options. Luxurious historical contexts are possible as well - for example Finnish President Kekkonen's sauna experience for guests.

(FIN) Ihmissuhteiden Taito 

Tieto ja taito hankitaan eri tavalla. Taito luodaan harjoituksen kautta.  Me tarjoamme turvallisen alustan näille harjoituksille!

Kulttuurisensitiiviset viestinnän ja johtamisen taidot ovat henkilökohtaisia taitoja, joita opitaan "tekemällä oppien". Kauttamme näitä taitoja voi harjoitella turvallisesti ja elämyksellisesti (live simulointi), jotta kalliita reaali-elämän kulttuurienvälisiä väärinkäsityksiä voitaisiin ennalta-ehkäistä mahdollisimman tehokkaasti. Jokainen tämänkaltainen kulttuuri koulutus räätälöidään. Ensi askel, alkukartoitus, on maksuton.
