This program will be conducted in German.
Who should attend
All employees who work with people from other cultural backgrounds and want to understand the different behavioral patterns and communication styles, as well as overcome any disruptions in cooperation triggered by them.
What you learn
Intercultural cooperation became more and more important. Projects are realized in global and intercultural teams and issues are discussed in internationally staffed meetings. Time and energy consuming misunderstandings and conflicts come up easily in such cross-cultural constellations. Sometimes they may even impede the entire project as such. The most common reason for this is the difference in certain cultural values. This effects behavioral patterns and the way of communication and working. It becomes visible in different priorities, different ideas of accountability, different time management and much more. Thus, the impact of culture on the success of projects and cooperation is tremendously strong.
In this program, you will be sensitized to challenges in intercultural collaboration and develop strategies to use them profitably. You will discover your own cultural preferences, distinguish them from your personal values and learn about the consequences of cultural differences on intercultural cooperation. You will also explore and train culturally appropriate communication styles.
How you learn
You will strengthen your intercultural competence and learn how to profit from cultural differences. Furthermore, you will develop concrete skills for goal-oriented intercultural work.
For the duration of 12 month you will be granted access to a supporting e-learning platform to deepen the content. In addition, you will receive an online access to the Intercultural Preference Tool (IPT) before the program will take place. This questionnaire assesses your cultural preferences in the working context using different cultural dimensions. You will obtain your personal profile of intercultural preferences along with a description of the results and recommendations regarding ways of action during the program.
In future, you will
- see your own cultural preferences in comparison to other relevant countries
- more consciously perceive and avoid unconscious prejudices and stereotypes
- actively build trust in intercultural teams
- own a specific toolbox for intercultural situations
