by creating familiarity and
thus cohesion and
to enable inclusion.

My trainings are about getting people fit for diversity in their home country and abroad. The specific objectives of a training are carefully developed together with the client and are adapted to the specific target group. My approach is resource, process and group-oriented. I aim at generating learning results on the cognitive, emotional and action levels. My trainings are based on the methods by Augusto Boal (Theater of the Oppressed) and Betzavta (Democracy as a Way of Life). Where possible I like to co-operate with co-trainers from my broad network.
These trainings are about getting fit for the diversity in Germany or to raise awareness for diversity in general. Issues can include intercultural differences in dealing with communication, time, hierarchy, co-operation and conflict, exclusion, anti-discrimination, intercultural competence in personnel management and within a team.
In these trainings people receive specific training for countries they will be working in or for contact with the people of those countries. The trainings raise awareness on personal cultural imprint, on cultural differences (presentation, small talk, co-operation , etc) and available intercultural resources are activated. I only provide training for countries in which I have lived.
I intensively got acquainted with Judaism, Christianity and Islam as a project leader of several interreligous projects. These trainings try to raise the awareness of the relevance of religion on a personal and social level. On a personal level it is about questions like sense or perspective of life. And on a social level it is about questions like power, majority and minority in religious practice in a country, community or group.
