Intercultural Coaching / Germany - France

"If anyone, no matter who, were given the opportunity of choosing from amongst all the nations in the world the set of beliefs which he thought best, he would inevitably - after careful considerations of their relative merits - choose that of his own country. Everyone without exception believes his own native customs, and the religion he was brought up in, to be the best."

(Herodotus, from The Histories, 420 b. Chr.)

Have you moved to Germany from France recently? Or will you soon be sent by your employer from Germany to France?

Our countries are close together and yet living and working here (and there) is very different. Both nations have a very special understanding of leadership, communication and hierarchies. The sooner you become aware of these diversities, the sooner you will be able to fit into your newly acquired position without friction.

Are you a Frenchman and could sometimes go crazy with your German colleagues because they are always so inflexible in meetins? Or do your French colleagues drive you mad because they take such a long time until they get to the point?

What is good about taking your time to get to the point? And what is the advantage of sticking to a predetermined agenda in a meeting?

Intercultural coaching will make you aware of your own cultural customs and show you the "other side". We take into account your individual experiences. You will develop an understanding of the differing approach and learn how to use the different behaviours for successful collaboration.

Are you spouse or partner of a French expatriate? How do you feel here?

Suddenly you are immersed in a different culture, you hear a foreign language everywhere and your life has changed completely. Maybe your own job has fallen by the wayside for the time being. What is your role here in Germany? How will you use your time here so that you can say in retrospect: "It was worth it"?
