In this world of global acting companies and the increasing intercultural communities, living and working effectively with people of different cultures will become more and more important. Also Universities are always more committed to international exchange and openness to Diversity in all its forms. Employees of international operating companies, scientists or students, all benefit from seeing the world through more than “one pair of glasses” and working their way through finding a common perspective.

Out of numerous studies and manifold experiences it is well known, that doing business internationally and working with a diverse work-force – without any intercultural sensitivity training – will most probably fail and then cost the companies or universities nerves and money. Intercultural or Diversity competence is more than plain tolerance. It is about empathy and change of perspective. One does not automatically absorb it with mother´s milk, but need work on empathic communication, tolerance of ambiguity, dealing with perceptions and self-assurance.
