What does my hand­shake mean in your cul­ture?

The perks and per­ils of inter­cul­tur­al encoun­ters

It goes with­out say­ing that I under­stand my hand­shake as an agree­ment and a promise. But does that also apply to you?

We help to increase under­stand­ing and accep­tance of dif­fer­ent cul­tures. It is impor­tant to us to ensure smooth coop­er­a­tion and respect­ful com­mu­ni­ca­tion across bor­ders. We look at what we have in com­mon and dis­cov­er what is dif­fer­ent in order to famil­iarise our­selves with it. In this way, we strength­en a con­struc­tive cul­ture of coop­er­a­tion, inter­cul­tur­al com­pe­tence and per­son­al vari­ety.

“The sound makes the music”

Com­mu­ni­ca­tion has many facets. It’s not just about what you say, but how you say it. Focussing too much on the fac­tu­al lev­el ignores the rela­tion­ship aspect. The trick is to find the right bal­ance. Those who know which val­ues apply in a cul­ture are not only one step ahead, but also gain trust and find the right approach more eas­i­ly.


A var­ied day with lots of prac­ti­cal exam­ples and con­crete sup­port for your own chal­lenges awaits you.


  • Deal­ing with cul­ture
  • Get­ting to know and prac­tis­ing the diverse aspects of inter­cul­tur­al com­pe­tence
  • Recog­nis­ing one’s own con­di­tion­ing
  • Dis­cov­er­ing approach­es to the “for­eign”
  • Devel­op­ing options for action com­pe­tence in the diver­si­ty of cul­tures

We offer the sem­i­nar as an inter­nal event. It sup­ports inter­cul­tur­al com­mu­ni­ca­tion, whether inter­nal­ly or with cus­tomers, and helps to avoid cul­tur­al mis­un­der­stand­ings. As a bonus, you will broad­en your cul­tur­al hori­zons.
