Third Culture Kids are children and adolescents who grew up in a different culture than their parents, or who moved often during childhood and youth whilst changing the culture. This is a topic which is very dear to me. I bring in my own experience as a Third Culture Kid and talk about their special strengths and needs.
For a more lasting effect, I offer further support after the intercultural training. Further coaching lessons can be arranged and I offer uncomplicated assistance with acute intercultural or expat-related problems.
Standardized “do’s and don’ts” are not really in keeping with the times. Stereotypes help gain initial orientation, but need to be brought into context depending on the situation. It is rather about developing a sense of one’s own and the others’ thinking and the ability to change perspective and find creative solutions for a good collaboration.
Targeted exercises, memorable role play and simulation, and graphic case studies help captivate interest and provide variety. A very high priority is the strong practical relevance, whereby I not only focus on the respective culture, but also on the field of activity of the participants, the industry of the company and the personal circumstances.
