Beschreibung Kursinhalt: 

Cross-cultural collaboration in international and heterogenous teams has become a crucial everyday part of scientific working environments. Understanding the keys of successful collaboration is important for each academic career path.

The aim of this workshop is to prepare participants for effective teamwork from an intercultural and diverse perspective in academia. Whether you work “abroad” or at “home”, whether “international” or “local” - get fit for working in international teams, to create more effective and rewarding collaborations and achieve better results.

  • Engage individually with your own cultural backgrounds and their impact on intercultural collaboration (culture is not nation)
  • Develop strategies for self-experienced difficult situations in international teams
  • Unconscious bias & perception in an intercultural context: How do we make ourselves aware of patterns of perception and interpretation?
  • Cultural dimensions: How can cultures be considered systematically, independent of national cultures? How can this be used for orientation in intercultural situations?
  • Conflict management & communication: How can we recognize misunderstandings and deal with them? What strategies are there for constructive conflict resolution?
  • Have the basics to feel more secure when intercultural situations occur
  • Develop strategies for self-experienced difficult situations in international teams

Scientific input, science-based models, discussions, group work, working on case studies, self-reflection, short lectures and numerous exercises with a strong focus on the relevance for your professional and daily life.

Helen Schliep

Helen Schliep, M.Sc., had the opportunity to experience different cultures and regions from a young age. This exposure inspired her to pursue a degree in social and cultural anthropology at the LMU with a focus on research. From 2023, she became a partner at Working Between Cultures, an opportunity that aligns perfectly with her passion for promoting global diversity and understanding. As a trainer, she honed her skills with InterCultur and now concentrates on areas such as unconscious bias, gender diversity, and fostering a global perspective. She finds great fulfillment in sharing her knowledge and experiences to contribute to a more inclusive and harmonious world.
