While my biggest cultural influence comes from Germany, the UK, Italy, and the US, I have also gained extensive knowledge from working with other European countries (Ireland, Austria, Switzerland, France, the Czech Republic, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Norway, and Finland), South and Central American countries (Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Argentina, Ecuador, Peru, and Mexico), as well as other countries, such as Japan, China, Korea, Thailand, and Canada.

Intercultural training and coaching may include but is not limited to:

  • a pre-course analysis and needs assessment
  • a pre-course questionnaire for all participants
  • creating a pre-course culture and personality profile using Global DISC (an ICQ Global tool), CultureActive (a Richard Lewis Communications training tool), Culture Compass (a Hofstede training tool), or Erin Meyer’s county/ team mapping and personal profiling tool (extra charge)
  • Unlock the potential within your team: measure, visualize, and optimize the three invisible forces that make or break a team: cognitive diversity, motivational drive, and psychological safety with Global DISC and the Growth 2.0 Program
  • team-building activities based on cultural differences/ profiles
  • an opportunity to exchange cultural experiences
  • a course manual/ handouts/ supplementary information
  • tailored content and hands-on situational advice
  • a variety of activities, role-plays, and situational discussions
  • an introduction to what culture is
  • an opportunity to explore one’s own culture and personality, other cultures, and to compare cultures (culture congruence vs. culture differentiation)
  • an introduction to a variety of models, concepts, and cultural dimensions
  • guidelines on how to build intercultural competence
  • additional activities to experience intercultural differences in areas such as agreeing and disagreeing, politeness and how not to accidentally offend others, prospecting and negotiating, persuading, meetings, scheduling, problem solving, decision making, conflict management, giving negative feedback, leading and motivating employees, building relationships, building trust, working in intercultural teams, etc.
