1/2012 Taking (intercultural) responsibility for 2012

On the eve of 2011 and the dawn of 2012, we see more reason than ever for a stronger exercise of intercultural sensitivity in the world. But as we well know, intercultural learning needs facilitation. This year we will focus on increasing your professional effectiveness by understanding the embodiment of culture.

Knowing how to work with these feelings can make the difference between being just good and being extraordinary in your intercultural work.
