Working in a multicultural environment

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.

The online training Working in a multicultural environment focuses on the further development of empathy and adaptability skills to better read and understand each other. By improving your cultural competences, you create a mindset whereby you learn to function 'beyond culture', regardless of someone's background. By developing your empathy and adaptability, you learn to master and apply various communication styles, depending on the situation and who you are speaking to. This allows you to build and maintain effective and successful relationships, or improve the performance of international teams.
