Intercultural competences

We support the development of organizational and individual intercultural competences that enable effective cooperation in multicultural environments.

The trainings are based on the concept of culture dimensions, which helps develop knowledge about effective management, collaboration, communication, and giving feedback in a multicultural environment. In addition, the trainings are designed to increase awareness of one's own culture to understand better the specifics of working in multinational organizations.
