Global program design and management

Do you want to internationalize your existing program? The word “global” is popular right now – “ everyone seems to be going global. But going global is not simply putting a U.S. program overseas or expecting a global team to integrate seamlessly on a project.

Hummingbird rcc offers customized services for organizations and academic institutions on global program design, development and management. Providing thought leadership and constructive feedback we use creative solutions to help you be innovative leaders in your field. Specializing in international education and exchange, we offer advisory services, process and system design, strategic planning, relationship building, evaluation and assessment, program coordination and implementation. We work with you to build capacity, identify market opportunities and reach strategic alignment.

Organizational development training and facilitaing

There is no doubt: we work in teams. We may work in formal or informal teams, but one of the most important determinants of success is the ability to work effectively with others. However, we do not always have the tools to most effectively build productive and rewarding working relationships.

Understanding your individual members’ strengths can help your organization to become more aware of how they impact others, and how others impact them. Hummingbird rcc helps your team to identify their  own strengths, weaknesses, and behaviors so that your organization can work effectively and at its best.

Cross-cultural communication and international development

Do you want to help your team members be more effective communicators? Do you have an international team and are facing cross-cultural differences?

As organizations become more global, there is also greater potential for cross-cultural differences, misperceptions, and conflict. Factors such as ethnicity, accent, and gender affect how your team members are viewed by others. Hummingbird rcc customizes cross-cultural leadership, networking, and communication training to help your teams build the skills to negotiate these issues and become more effective leaders and contributors to help your organization succeed.

We also understand that the process of writing grants, proposals, and reports is often seen as an arduous task. Often, it takes an objective perspective to prepare the most effective document. Hummingbird rcc works with you to ensure that your written word most effectively communicates your message and best positions you in a competitive field.

With a successful track record, we provide constructive and careful analysis and consulting to help prepare, write, and edit proposals, grants, reports and other work for publication. We also provide editing services for presentations, articles, and journal submissions.

Presentation writing presents a different challenge, and with experience in writing and delivering powerful slide presentations, we help you to streamline and make effect your message.
