When people from different cultures come together, they sometimes lack a common ‚code of conduct‘, an unspoken agreement about what can and cannot be said. This is a matter of cross-cultural communication, which refers to the comparison of communication styles across cultures.
In addition, there may be differences of opinion about HOW to talk about difficult issues such as religion, racial discrimination, sexual harassment in the workplace, gender equality, corruption, LGBTIQ+, etc.
Intercultural communication refers to interactions among people from different cultures. It aims to create understanding, increase trust, build relationships and drive collaboration. However, intercultural communication can be challenging in various ways, particularly when it comes to addressing power imbalances, taboos, and dealing with stereotypes.
The training will show ways to address sensitive issues in a way that not only does not shame the other person, but at the same time makes them want to cooperate and develop. Participants will learn through practical exercises to communicate sensitive topics in such a way that there is no need for the conversation counterpart to withdraw, defend or counterattack.

On completion of the on-site training, participants
Proposals should be submitted until 15/01/2024 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
