How everything began interkultura training & consulting
As usual, it all started by chance, and to be precise, from a chance conversation with a long-unseen friend. We had known each other since our girl scouting days, long bygone, since before the twists of life took us to different parts of the world to live completely different lives. On one visit to my hometown, I bumped into Donata, my childhood friend, and learned that she became a business trainer, which was a profession almost unheard of in the early ‘90s in Poland. “Where did you even get the idea from?”, I asked stirred by the news. In response, Donata told me her story, and that story remained at the back of my mind for some years before I myself came to the decision that I wanted to be a trainer, which I will expand on further on.
“You know, Anna”, she began, “one day I simply asked myself when was the time in my life I was really happy? And the answer was – during our scouting days. I realized that I truly, deeply enjoyed being a scout leader, organizing field games and trips, get-togethers, socializing and making new friends all the time … it was awesome! After I admitted that to myself. [That was my epiphany, a moment of sudden realization after which] I simply started looking for a job which would combine all that: learning through games, traveling and meeting new people. And so, I became a trainer.”
Our first Intercultural Courses in Poland and Germany
“The most helpful part of the program was the overall picture of life and life experiences in Germany and how to look at them… Extremely satisfied with the program.”
“Extremely satisfied with our program and would recommend to others because the approach (cultural training) is largely unknown and should be invested in by companies more often.”
“I loved the program! It was really informative and detailed. Our trainer made sure that I didn’t have any questions left unanswered in the end.”
“Helpful things that I learned include reasons that explain why people/locals do things, act and behave. Understand the cultural differences, accept and adapt.”
