You will learn practical and applicable strategies and tools to consciously shape a more inclusive brain and increase the brain’s capacity to see differences in the lens of appreciation and move away from fear-based, unconscious responses.

In this workshop we will show how this core competence of cross-culturally competent participants of SIETAR is relevant for general organizational processes. In the last years, the diversity concepts integrated in Diversity Icebreaker (DI) have been documented relevant for organizational processes. We want in this workshop to present DI as a broader concept than just related to cross-cultural communication and interaction. The seminar will be interactive and led by at least two experienced Diversity Icebreaker consultants.

Working with people from other cultures can be highly creative and energizing as well as challenging, confusing and frustrating. Transactional Analysis (TA), a theory of interpersonal communication, provides a number of concepts and tools to better understand these situations and widen our perspectives.The workshop is designed for trainers, facilitators, managers and team members. It will be conducted with a combination of conceptual input, self-awareness and cultural awareness approaches. Facilitation will be done through experiential activities (use of real life experiences will be encouraged), participative discussions and exercises.
