PROPOSAL OF A MODEL OF THE PROCESS OF INDIVIDUAL LEARNING OF INTERCULTURAL SKILLS
The international development of companies comes along with an extension of the skills of employees. Traditionally, technical, managerial and linguistic qualifications constitute the necessary capacities for the success of expatriates. At present, numerous studies show that besides the mentioned skills, social skills and more particularly intercultural ones can play a decisive role in international success. Consequently, the learning of this skill becomes a necessity whether at an individual or organizational level. The present article of theoretical impact proposes a modeling of the process of individual learning of intercultural skills. We begin with a synthesis of literature on the concepts of intercultural skill and individual learning. Our contribution consists in bringing to light three dimensions of this learning: individual, organizational and social.
