Interkulturelle Kompetenz – Culture Communication Skills® - Xpert – Basic Module
Course taught in English

In a globalized world and especially in daily work routines we more and more interact with people from different cultural backgrounds. Speaking lang="EN-US">a common language can only provide a first step into successful communication across borders. Yet, we also have to be aware of cultural otherness. On top of this awareness we need specific skills that help us to develop some sensitivity for intercultural interaction.

This seminar focuses on Intercultural Communication for various business fields, international cooperation, import / export, HR management, and education. The goal is to transmit knowledge, elicit self-regulation, and to provide tools for self-critical and professional behavior in intercultural situations. Naturally this seminar can provide second language speakers with an intensive English conversation training.

lang="EN-GB">This course is the first part of a modular system of seminars which will help you to systematize your intercultural experience and offer you the possibility to become a trainer for intercultural communication yourself.
