Intercultural training promotes the development of cross-cultural competence and is aimed at people who work abroad or are engaged in global teams, organizations, and projects. This training is designed to foster understanding, appreciation, and respect for what each culture brings with it. In addition, such trainings can minimize tension and conflict on the job.
An interculturally competent person recognizes and understands the perceptions, mindset, feelings, and way of working of people from other cultures. Such trainings help people understand the “why” behind behavior and understand the values and beliefs of others.
All of our trainers have lived and worked in many foreign countries for years and bring hands-on experience and expertise to the trainings.
This is a customized training that is tailored to your learning and organizational needs. Some sessions may be as short as 3 hours, while other trainings could be one day or longer. They can be done virtually or on-site.
Our training sessions and workshops focus on:
- Professional competence (e.g., everyday competence, country or culture-specific knowledge)
- Social competence (e.g., empathy, communication competence, expression, and intercultural team skills)
In order to professionally develop these skills, the content is divided into two main categories: General cultural and country-specific culture
This can be useful for individuals as well as teams, particularly if they are experiencing intercultural conflict.
