Event details:

When we work in international teams or projects or manage someone who is not from the same cultural background, something as simple as giving feedback or gaining their input can feel almost impossible. Suddenly, the rules we have learned about giving constructive criticism and involving everybody equally don’t seem to apply anymore. It can feel terribly frustrating to work with project partners that promise action but don’t follow up on it. Or to have given feedback to someone in the most considerate way possible but suddenly see them disengage. Some people might seem like they just didn’t get the message you wanted to send them.

In most of these cases, different ways to communicate, different styles to present feedback and criticism as well as different preferences for hierarchy or more egalitarian processes are at the root of such problems. By learning about these differences and processes to overcome them, you will be able to get your project out of stalemate, involve everyone as you would wish and communicate your messages so that they get heard.

What you will learn:

  • Getting to know the different types of communicators, the different ways to formulate feedback around the world, the different degrees of feeling allowed to contribute to discussions/giving one’s opinion.
  • Exemplary processes to get an international project out of stalemate situations (or to avoid ending up in stalemate)

How you will benefit:

  • How to get input from project stakeholders or team members that are not direct communicators?
  • How to adapt feedback so that it remains constructive and is understood by someone from another culture?
  • The need for special processes to be put in place in order to ensure everyone is on board

Who should attend?

International professionals: e.g. members/managers of teams with multiple nationalities; members/managers of virtually working global teams; HR managers with international staff; international project leaders; professionals working with international client

About Speaker Eva Tarabichi: Trainer and coach for international professionals, teams, expats, expat spouses and global nomads. 
ICF ACC-certified, she delivers out-of-the-box global minded multilingual and multicultural thinking. She deeply cares about her clients: “I want you to be the best version of yourself WHEREVER in the world you may be”.
She choses to specialise in intercultural and expat training and coaching because she has been an expat for half of her life: as a school child, university student, professional in multinationals, expat spouse, expat mother and entrepreneur.
She has a big passion for this life style and understand it’s vast opportunities but also the multitude of challenges expats and international staff may face.

Eva holds university degrees in Sinology (Mandarin and Modern China Studies) as well as EU politics and administration. During her studies she already specialised in intercultural communication.
Before becoming a trainer and coach, she worked in international law firms and business associations in the sector of EU political interest representation.
This background gave her a thorough understanding of the experiences her clients make in their everyday work life, as well as the theoretical background to address intercultural situations effectively. She loves training or coaching clients who are working on international projects or multinational teams: deepening their intercultural skills and witnessing how this makes them more productive, happier and better engaged with their teams!
