Cultural awareness: dealing with culture stress

People with different cultural backgrounds could have different frames of reference. Sometimes this is clear: they behave unknown. Often it lays less on the surface: emotions are shown differently, or not, information is processed in an unexpected way and feedback is misinterpreted.

In the Cultural Awareness: dealing with culture stress online training you will gain new insights so that you can better empathise with and understand the other person. You will also develop basic skills that will enable you to communicate more constructively with people from different backgrounds. This personal growth will lead to more successful relationships and greater employee satisfaction.

It starts with discovering who you are, what you stand for and what you can contribute to effective international cooperation - consciously or unconsciously. Blind spots are identified. You learn to monitor and regulate your thoughts, emotions and behaviour in a way that aligns with the other culture. This awareness is necessary to bridge intercultural differences and communicate successfully in a multifaceted, international environment.
