Developing international skills
In a globally interconnected world, sensitivity to other cultures is particularly important. The understanding of other views is the basis of successful cooperation. A person who signals respect for other viewpoints as well as appreciating their economic advantage will not only work more congenially with others, he or she will also have a business advantage over potential competitors.

Find out more about yourself: TIP – the online check
You can't understand others without knowing who you are yourself. Our intercultural online checking tool "The International Profiler" (TIP) provides you with a personal analysis tool which is useful for anyone who is about to undertake international work. It's based on 10 personal and intercultural skills which are considered to be relevant to international success. Once the online assessment has been evaluated, a certified coach will help you to identify your strengths and areas to work on.
From the results of the assessment we draw up a training plan which is tailored to the individual's needs and is intended to improve personal technical and leadership qualities in an international work environment.
