Intercultural Communication Services

Intercultural Professionals is the intercultural training and consultancy branch of the KIT Royal Tropical Institute. Our approach to cultural awareness focuses on how you can connect and build strong relationships in an intercultural context. At the individual level we believe that self-awareness is essential for creating intercultural successes.

Participants in our programmes become aware of their individual preferences and habits, explore what reactions these may elicit from others, and how this relates to cultural experiences. At the same time our trainers and experts help participants understand these situations in specific intercultural contexts—offering ample opportunity to discover new skills and define effective individual communication strategies. The results are practical tools for individuals to work successfully with culturally-diverse teams, projects, and international partners.
