General Awareness

The general awareness course introduces the user to the topic of crosscultural communication in small doses of theoretical and practical features. The focus is on discussing the term “culture”, which leads the user to reflect on his own culture and thus to a better understanding of what distinguishes the own culture from other cultures. This is exemplified by detailed aspects and models without losing touch with practice. A profound general awareness provides the basis for subsequently dealing with the peculiarities of individual cultures.

Country-specific courses

The country-specific e-learning courses convey the most important aspects of successfully establishing business contacts and cooperating with business partners and colleagues from various cultures in six chapters:

  1. Initial business contact
  2. Communication and impact
  3. Meetings and presentations
  4. Negotiations, decisions and contracts
  5. Coordination and cooperation
  6. Business meals and after work

Checking your knowledge

When international teams are set up, completely different worlds and approaches collide. All of those are perceived as stressful and distracting factors by the individual team members.

Solution: In a country-specific training before the onset of the project it is possible to talk about “the others” in a hypothetical way. The culturally defined approaches are studied in a so-called “dry run.” Then the actionable strategies for working together are set during a jointly held workshop. This kind of approach has proven extremely successful, i.e., talking to each other instead of about one another.

Results: The team experiences fewer distractions and conflicts working together, build a common communication basis, and tapping the team’s full potential becomes possible.
