Navigation workshop -
Cross-cultural communication and competence training

Your objectives:

  • Create cultural commonalities and recognize synergy effects of your own and the other culture in your team
  • Perceive and deal with significant cultural differences
  • Decode and manage different behavioral patterns and communication styles
  • Discover new perspectives and know how to bridge cultural gaps

A typical issue is that many potentials pass up opportunities. This is due to confusion with business cases across cultures, different perceptions and evaluations. Different working methods, communication, decision-making processes and personal aspects are often not considered in teamwork beyond borders. This will lead to extra costs.

Our proposal:

By means of various instruments (e.g., International Preference Indicator, ITTI, Ishikawa analysis, change style indicator, Innovation-management, Open Space and World Café and other decision-making models) we are offering task-specific training and workshops according to your individual needs within your business context. Thus we offer you an individual feedback form to reflect on your decision-making in your international role and evaluate the outcome.

Topics and case studies e.g.:

Perceiving and accepting the diverse factors which influence people personally, at their work location, in the community or for instance considering their religious beliefs.

By means of real case studies observing the intercultural challenges, analysing problems and finding solutions to bridge the cultural gaps.

Influence and denotation of new cultural frameworks in an organisation and impact on global public and press relations.

Our solutions:

  • Set the record straight by conveying and practicing the five linked aspects of cross-cultural competency
  • Internalize the aspects of: an open attitude, mindfulness towards self and others, intercultural Know-how, techniques and tools to deal with the unexpected
  • Gain new cross-cultural expertise and approaches to facilitate your radius of options.
  • Developing your relevant key qualities for working internationally e.g. in becoming more perceptive about unspoken thoughts, feelings and body language
