We help individuals decode critical cultural expectations and develop strategies to successfully navigate their professional and academic environments. We focus on three critical capacities: self-aware leadership, contextual communications and collaborative interpersonal relationships. Known for our highly engaging coaching and training programs, Dreambridge Partners collaborates with universities and students to deliver on our mission: To catalyze future business leaders to leverage their Best Self and capitalize on their skills to make a positive difference in a culturally interconnected world.
Dreambridge Learning was born to address the needs of international students, particularly those from Asian countries, who have a lot of difficulty adjusting to life in the U.S. due to the polar opposite cultural values of Asians and Americans. International students need cultural translation to be successful; we provide an explicit roadmap to ease their adaptation to a new culture.
What We Do
We partner with organizations, universities and individuals to achieve their goals, utilizing a wide spectrum of modalities for learning and practicing new skills.
Dreambridge Learning’s latest initiative, our video tutorial library, provides “building blocks” for developing new cultural behaviors through:
- Cultural understanding
- Storytelling of self
- Job search social nuances
