Intercultural competence is one of the key competences of leaders and employees in organizations, human resource management and international leadership and management. The development of intercultural competencies includes the improvement of strategic, individual, professional, social and linguistic competences to reach an intercultural understanding between individuals of different origins. We develop intercultural competences in individuals, teams and organizations through intercultural trainings and coachings. Face-to-face and virtually.
The way how we communicate, cooperate and work together across cultures influences the work relationships, the work situations, the strategies and routines in organisations and the organisational culture. Intercultural communication competencies are important to create positive and trustful relationships to fulfill organisational goals and gain success.
We train leaders and employees how to work and cooperate with individuals and organizations across cultures. We focus especially on Southern Africa, Germany and the USA. Our trainings include culture-specific knowledge and business communication, culture-specific competence on how to make life and work successful in Southern Africa, Germany and the USA.
We support individuals and organisations in resolving conflict and using conflict potentials to create better relationships and cooperation across cultures. We coach leaders and teams how to resolve conflict constructively – especially in diverse work contexts. We also conduct conflict negotiation and intercultural mediation processes within organizations to transform conflicts into new opportunities.
To lead successfully across cultures is a complex skill. We prepare and coach leaders to lead successfully in complex organizational, intercultural and international contexts. Thereby, we focus on the development of the leader, leadership skills and intercultural competences, as well as on the development of the team.
Leading culturally diverse and complex organizations needs not only leadership qualities, but also intercultural strategies to lead diverse teams and employees. We support leaders and teams to go through team development processes, to deal with the complexities of rapid changes, and to develop towards successful international cooperation. Face-to-face and virtually.
We offer the assessment of personality preferences and intercultural competences and coach leaders and employees to develop mindfully.
