    How to work productively with people from different cultures

    Academia and scientific exchange take place in international contexts. If people fall back on structures of meaning into which they were socialized, misunderstandings and even conflicts often arise.

    Intercultural competence means the ability to interpret culture-bound behaviour appropriately and to use different communication rules. This workshop promotes communication skills, strengthens self-reflection, and presents strategies for dealing with diversity.

    Through interactive methods, the participants learn to deal confidently with intercultural irritations and how to prevent conflict situations. Case studies and practical tools provide opportunities for creating international partnerships to deepen collegial relationships and to manage joint projects effectively. more
