The topic of our next DMeetUp of the 6th of June, at 3 p.m. CET with Olga Collin, a Senior Advisor at Intercultural Solutions of IOR Global Services continues the discussion of

How to establish connections and break walls

Most of us have experienced “difficult” clients and program participants who
– know it all because it’s their 3rd international move
– don’t need training because they have led global teams for years
– extensively traveled
– participate only because it was mandated
The list goes on and on. In such cases, training may be frustrating, exhausting, and energy and effort-consuming. But once we get through the walls of mistrust and strike the cord magic happens!

In this interactive session, we will explore ways and strategies for creating that deep connection that is crucial to facilitating learning, new discoveries, and “aha” moments!
