Successful international collaboration cannot be improvised; it must be prepared.

We can work together to develop your intercultural skills, allowing you to embrace differences and make them work for your shared projects.

First, you will become aware of your own cultural socialisation and gain insight into the other culture. You will then be able to put your viewpoints and interpretations of the others’ behaviour into perspective. You will be in a position to understand and accept people from the other culture. That will enable us to define and practise new strategies for action and communication.

My approach is personalised, interactive, solution and action-oriented.

Examples of topics covered during cultural awareness training:

  • What is culture?
  • What does perception have to do with culture?
  • How can we manage foreign situations and “otherness”?
  • Why do we cling to stereotypes and prejudices?
  • How can we move from “otherness” to familiarity? How can we successfully integrate?
  • What is intercultural competence? How do we gain it?
  • What are intercultural misunderstandings? How do they originate?
  • We cannot not communicate. But how do we communicate exactly?
  • How does time management influence collaboration?
  • What intercultural action strategies can we implement?
  • How can we embrace differences to make a difference?
