HOW DO YOU DO? - ABOUT COMMUNICATION IN ANOTHER CULTURE

Good communication is an important basis that can be a challenge when moving to a new location. During the seminar we will talk about the differences in communication - beginning with the differences between interpersonal styles and cultural differences, we are constantly confronted with a lack of understanding and the impossibility of self-expression. How to get ready for a conversation with someone difficult or important? How to influence the effectiveness of the message? How to ensure your comfort in conversation, discussion, negotiation and confrontation?
