|Language meets Culture|
From studying the language to communicating sensitively and effectively in German!
Your English-speaking boss asks you, a German: “Would you mind staying longer tonight?” You decline by telling him politely that you won’t be able to. He gets angry – and you have no clue why.
Language, culture and…misunderstandings?
• Today’s globalized society has lead to the development of a workplace that is a hive of multiculturalism. Essentially, individuals from different countries and walks-of-life, all with various specialties, working together as part of a larger team.
• However, training specifically tailored to meet the cultural challenges that are by-products of this global workplace is largely neglected.
• When people communicate, they--for the most part--literally translate from one language to another without sufficient awareness of the possible underlying cultural implications. This brings along a host of possible misunderstandings, frustrations and even failures - often with no understanding as to the cause.
• Therefore, mastering intercultural communication skills and being aware of the cultural scripts underlying all communications is the decisive factor for success on an international level.
Intercultural communicative competence allows you to carry out your business venture successfully. Without it the outcome can be quite easily, unknowingly and unexpectedly put at risk.
Simply-Being-Intercultural assists organizations and individuals in achieving success by embracing and mastering the German language.
