Training Program includes:
A: Identify who is at play – Me and You
We are multiple selves. Understanding this plural I.
Who are we speaking to? Facing the 6 different audiences.
B: Speaking overtly and covertly – strategies of clarity and ambiguity
The message and the meaning.
The rules of clear conversation and the choice of ambiguity.
Hearing the other’s message, between the lines, to bypass censorship.

How is “Intercultural Strategic Intelligence” different from our other workshops:
All of our trainings carry the basics of intercultural intelligence; this particular workshop is built to suit online training. It has a strong emphasis on improving participants’ capacity to perceive the differences between self and others, and on facilitating the search for common grounds.
