Intercultural awareness
workshops

Integrating doesn’t stop with learning the language. In order to feel at home, you will need to get familiar with the habits and customs of the country you’re in. That’s where our intercultural awareness workshop comes in.

Start seeing the world through new eyes

It can be hard to understand our own cultural norms and preferences if we’ve never been confronted with cultural values other than our own. Once we start living in another country, or working in an international team, we realise that there are different cultural perspectives. Think of communication styles, being on time, body space, hierarchy, feedback etcetera.

Flowently designs the intercultural awareness workshop so that you can become aware of your own cultural preferences. In this way, you can find out how they compare to those of your colleagues and Dutch culture in general. You will also learn about Dutch history and geography, how to deal with culture shock and the do’s and don’ts when living in the Netherlands. The workshop sessions can be given at your office, at an external location or online.
