Language Coaching

A communication solution for international growth

Discover how we help customers build bridges to their new international teams to facilitate better relationships, collaboration and innovation.

Why coaching is key for international growth

Innovation sits at the heart of every growing tech company. To outpace the competition, companies need to constantly add new features, fix bugs and create brand new, never before seen ideas. At the core of groundbreaking product is a team of developers and engineering turning these ideas into a reality. Without a talented tech team, Uber couldn’t connect drivers to riders, Airbnb couldn’t connect hosts to travelers, and eBay couldn’t connect buyers to sellers.

With 74% of engineers in Silicon Valley born outside of the United States, English is not the native language—and American culture is not the norm—for a significant portion of the qualified talent. Requiring native-level English ability from the get-go would considerably reduce the talent pool and exclude some of the top innovators, problem solvers and coders. As a result, communication training is becoming increasingly important for growing tech companies.

How we helped Twitter expand internationally

In 2014, Twitter was growing exponentially around the world. Recruiting qualified people with near-native English was impossible, and communication gaps limited collaboration, productivity, and career growth. After a successful pilot in Brazil, Lingo Live coaches helped Tweeps collaborate and thrive across Latin America, Europe and Asia.
