Due to increasing globalization, intercultural teamwork is already part of everyday work at many German universities.
When academics from different cultures work together, it quickly becomes clear that there are considerable cultural differences. Both in communication and in behavior. Numerous studies show that it is not enough to say: "At the end of the day, we are all equal. That's true, but we're also all different. And not becoming aware of these differences and constructively looking for bridges and the more of diversity is not possible without appropriate preparation. This is also shown by numerous studies. The consequences: Misunderstandings, loss of face, inefficient cooperation, poor team spirit, no innovation.
This does not have to be the case!
In this training the participants get a sustainable understanding of international and interdisciplinary team competences, taking into account their own culture. They develop and receive numerous good practices and practice interculturally competent team behaviour through practical exercises and tasks. They will also have the opportunity to ask numerous questions and exchange experiences with others in the same situation.
