Training: virtual cross-cultural collaboration

Nowadays, many international teams are spread over different locations. Collaboration in these groups most often occurs virtually [i.e., via e-mail, telephone and web conference]. If the team members additionally come from different cultures, collaboration is often especially difficult.

On the one hand, we discuss in our training how the existing cultural differences can be effectively bridged. On the other hand, we also impart important strategies and know-how for successful virtual collaboration.

We offer this training in two versions:

  • •The first is for participants who work in virtual international teams.
  • The second is for managers who lead [virtual] work groups from a distance.

Each of the two variants naturally contains different strategies and a focuses.


Our 200 experts live in Stuttgart, Munich, Frankfurt, Cologne, Vienna, Zurich and many other German-speaking cities. We also have trainers across Asia, Africa, Europe as well as in North, Central and South America. This allows us to keep travel costs especially low.

We only work with experts who have broad international business experience!


  • Languages: English, German, French or Spanish; other languages available on request
  • Location: In-house at your company or in rented seminar rooms all across the world
  • We offer various add-on options that can make your seminar even more sustainable; for example, our knowledge transfer check©.


We recommend having an analysis of the current team situation and existing improvement potential done before the workshop. We use interviews and surveys for this purpose. We can then work with your team on the areas that need improvement and create useful, strategic solutions.
