Understanding Cultures is the key to productive communication
With my passion for foreign cultures,
my many years of experience in cooperation with partners
in China, Japan, India, South America
and my concrete management experience on site in China,
I help you to work productively with other cultures,
to establish long-term business relationships,
to avoid misunderstandings
and to be successful with your business.
I build bridges between cultures and thus become a door-opener for your intercultural cooperation.
What do you actually learn inintercultural communication
The confident handling of cultural differences as well as the ability to understand and interpret the background of behavior play a central role in international business.
Have you ever experienced that communication with foreign business partners and colleagues is much more difficult than with people from your own cultural background?
Does the cooperation with other cultures cost you a lot of time and energy in your everyday work and yet often does not lead to the desired result?
Do you work with Germans and struggle to make yourself understood to your German partners or understand their signals?
Do you work witch Chinese and have the impression that you do not know enough about China to understand your counterpart sufficiently?
Wouldn't it be great if you had the necessary tools to communicate efficiently and smoothly with Asian partners?
Wouldn't it be great if you and your team became a China- or Germany-expert with a crisp, condensed training?

Constructive handling of cultural differences
Recognizing, anticipating and avoiding misunderstandings and potential areas of conflict

Higher productivity and avoidance of process losses
You are able to independently analyze intercultural situations, recognize culture-related areas of conflict at an early stage and develop solutions in critical situations.

so that you can concentrate
on the essentials of your business
MY OFFERS FOR YOU
Productive cooperation with foreign cultures without frictional losses
In my role as a manager in China I have experienced how enriching
working with people from other cultures can be,
but I have also learned about the special challenges of working in a foreign culture and managing employees there. I also learned how challenging my german communication style can be for other cultures.
Through my trainings I want to broaden the cultural horizon of the participants, sharpen their perception for cultural differences in communication
and enable them to cooperate more effectively with other cultures.
This includes getting to know the specifics of your own culture as well as the specifics of the country you are working in.
