for intercultural teams
Intercultural communication and cooperation
How do you take account of cultural differences and make them advantages for the group? This workshop is about the cultural challenges that arise, when people from different cultural backgrounds meet face-to-face
We identify and train how to work with and analyze concrete practices that respect cultural differences and how a team might even come out stronger because of them?
At the course we are going to discuss what successful cultural communication is
- analyze embodied cultural positions
- Identify cultural challenges
- work with tools that can make us use differences positively
Workshoppen is a mix of theory and exercises, where everyone can participate and contribute.
