Laying the foundations for successful cross-cultural communication
Contemporary working conditions routinely bring together people from different cultural backgrounds – cultural diversity in teams and work groups has become part of everyday working life in most areas. This two-day basic intercultural training seminar focuses on raising participants’ awareness of their own cultural conditioning (Self Assessment) and the diversity of cultures. It uncovers habits and patterns of behaviour which are not immediately apparent, but are nevertheless disruptive to collaboration and communication, and presents strategies that can be employed to minimize these disruptions. The training promotes competences such as different communication styles or openness towards negotiation styles which are more person-oriented than task-oriented.
While the seminar is explicitly not focused on any particular country, it does offer the opportunity to examine selected examples from the participants’ own practical experience. The fostering of transcultural competence forms the basis for future-oriented, stable and effective international cooperation.
- Self-reflection (Self Assessment)
- Change of perspective
- Cultural perception
- Tolerance of ambiguity
- Communication styles in an intercultural context
- Consequences for leadership styles
- Development of action strategies and guidelines for international cooperation
