Intercultural training
The main emphasis of this training focuses on creating learning environments that strengthen and sensitize our consciousness. Those learning environments will enable the students (sometimes for the first time) to notice cultural imprints and use them in an economic context to widen their individual possibilities in terms of „diversity".
Our training concept and actual work concentrate on dealing with the differences in „cultural awareness" of people.
The understanding of the semiotics of a culture provides the theoretic basis of our training concept. It emphasizes the interaction of people from one or several organisations (within one or more cultural contexts).
In addition to the theoretic input about „Cultural Differences" our work focuses on people's different experiences and e.g. their media influenced preconceptions. Simultaneously we target implicit personal experiences which are often difficult to verbalize and therefore can prevent a successful intercultural conflict management.
Existing prejudices are addressed by strengthening intercultural managment competences and removed in a manner which is comprehensible for our clients.

Main goals of our training:
  • Teaching of skills that help to build and stabilize relationships between collaborating external and internal people with different cultural inprints within organisations; because only a successful interaction between people – regardless if they are manager, owner, co-worker or client - leads to lasting economic success.
  • The training supports a constructive and diverse preparation for future transnational and intercultural work and optimizes existing knowledge.
