Training for International Business Professionals Working in Germany
In our globalised and internationalised life and work environment it is becoming increasingly more important to manage intercultural situations in a competent way.
It is one thing to master a foreign language, but another to know about the guiding principles and values of your business partners and co-workers from different cultural backgrounds. Why are there frequent misunderstandings in communication in international teams which can make collaboration difficult?
Besides specialist and language qualifications, social skills and intercultural competence are decisive factors for your success!
For this reason, The Travelling Teacher offers you intercultural training.

- You save time, money and eliminate stress
- Misunderstandings and conflicts are effectively prevented
