Intercultural training – intercultural communication

 

Would you like to prepare yourself for working with people from another country? Do you wish to establish contacts with foreign colleagues, customers or partner organisations? Or even just improve existing relationships with them? Would you like to help integrate foreign colleagues into the team at your Swiss company, to introduce them to Swiss culture and help them settle in, professionally and personally? Would you be interested in learning about the cultural background of your new colleague(s)? Do you think we should promote mutual cultural understanding? Should intercultural stumbling blocks be avoided? Choose our intercultural training if you have answered "YES" to any of these questions.
