My mission in an international context is to empower my clients to thrive abroad by embracing diversity!
I work with international companies to successfully navigate cultural diversity in the workplace by embracing differences and seeing multicultural teams as an asset, not a liability! Diverse teams are more productive and can perform better and yet need to overcome different working styles and languages. I am the sparring partner for your executives, trainer of intercultural competencies in your teams, and the coach for your top talents working in an international context.
In fact, the main reason for failure in international business is not the lack of technical expertise or goodwill, but rather cultural illiteracy and the lack of people skills.
Diversity in the Workplace
Embracing cultural diversity in the workplace is an important first step for businesses that want to be competitive on an international scale.
A diverse culture in the workforce occurs when a company hires employees from a variety of backgrounds, race, gender, age, or religion.
What I do for you:
My goal for you is to strengthen the strengths of your diverse team and at the same time balancing out the challenges you are facing. We create and implement a strategy to build a culture of diversity that permeates every department and function of the organization. Starting with Communication.
Intercultural competence is of crucial importance in our interconnected world.
It is defined in a number of ways, but generally, it is “the ability to communicate and behave in appropriate ways with those who are culturally different—and to co-create shared spaces, teams, and organizations that are inclusive, effective, innovative, and satisfying.”
Intercultural competence is sometimes also called „cross-cultural competence“ (3C)
The basic requirements for intercultural competence are empathy, an understanding of other people’s behaviors and ways of thinking, and the ability to express one’s own way of thinking.
Intercultural competence is the ability to communicate effectively and appropriately with people of other cultures.
What I do for you:
Together we will develop the intercultural competencies of your Team Members individually and as part of an international team and – at the same time – helping them to manage their everyday challenges in an international context.
