3rd annual transnational intercultural competence training for staff of public authorities, institutions and administrative facilities in Leipzig

On November 23, 2016 the project team invited employees of public administration for a workshop held by two professional intercultural trainers. The goal of the seminar was to help dealing with misunderstandings while working with people from different cultures and exchange experiences. The training also included the sensitization for typical German communication and behavioral pattern in comparison to other cultural patterns. The workshop was fully booked with employees from iDiv, Human Resources Department of the university, Foreigner’s Authority, Resident Services Office and Leipzig Help Desk.

One week later, on November 30, 2016 part two of the seminar took place: the country-specific Intercultural training „Nations, cultures and regions at a glance“. Focus was the training of a sensitive handling of intercultural clients and information about regions and culture-specific background.

The participants praised the efficient and helpful seminar. The project team looks forward to the 4th edition of the trainings in 2017.
