From the beginning of times women took over leadership the form of which varied in every stage of human development. In patriarchy men seemed to have all the power and dominated the public world, leading was their exclusive domain. Only recently in human history women have come out to take over leadership in the outside world. As a matter of fact they ALWAYS were leading, mostly behind the scenes and often in manipulative ways, the most efficient form in which they could express their personal power.
Times are changing quickly since the 60ies when women stood up and openly claimed their right of a role in the outside world. Many women entered the rough masculine dominated world and had little choice: or become like MEN or give up. Now, half a century later women have become more self confident, they leave the masculine style of leading behind and begin to explore their own way of being in the world, integrating what they have learnt in the masculine world, but pioneering their own way which gives value to the innate qualities and capacities of women.
In our workshop we bring together women of different generations and with different experiences in leading. We ask them about their story of leadership: What motivated them to enter into visibility, to stop imitating men and develop their own “thing”, what their experiments were, their style and why they are burning for the cause they bring forth by developing their leadership skills and what they were able to move so far.
How can I find more balance in my busy life, solve problems and manage conflicts? How can I improve my communication, better understand and relate more deeply to other people? How can I have a a good relationship with my voice and autonomy and be firmly rooted in my femininity without losing in a male-dominated business world? How can I make sense of all the issues facing our world? Why do I do the things that I do? Learning the Integral Approach can help you answer all of these questions and many more.

In our long teaching praxis we recognise that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques. It is why we use a variety different teaching methods to get the same message across and make sure that no one is left out or falls behind. It is our way of making sure that all participants engage with all of the subject content, especially the key concepts and learning points. Our trainings consist of different sessions combining short lectures and practical exercises and involves a great deal of interaction. Simulations and team exercises aim to not only identify, but to fully understand the key differences in cultural behaviour.
In combining cognitive (didactic) and participatory (experiential) learning our relocation course program seeks to introduce to the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to live and work successfully in multicultural context.
Our methods chosen by cognitive, affective und creative dimensions of learning here.
Our Intercultural Approach
Our Intercultural Training is a In-House Training available seven days a week, 365 days a year at your offices in any location worldwide. We usually recommend a one or two day course but can also offer a more flexible format to suit your schedule.
The training needs assessment helps us find common training programs for your group of employees. The identification of training needs is the first step in a uniform method of instructional design. We suggest to perform the assessment in form of Personal Analysis. We will start to get to know our participants and their learning needs by sending them a short questionnaire before the start of the training. However the Organizational Analysis, in form of consultation with persons in key positions, and/or with specific knowledge could be also conducted via video conferences or done by phone call, if desirable.
Suitably tailored training materials will be provided and your trainer will provide a balance of structured input and discussion of case studies, critical incidents and scenarios relevant to your own particular context. The most appropriate training format, content and approach for your Intercultural Training course will be discussed during your diagnostic consultancy.
