Intercultural Communication

The founder of StIPS  has lived on 3 different continents and speaks 7 languages. Because of this, intercultural communication is an integrated part of all our training seminars and lectures. His work as a diplomat to the EU also provides many fun, interesting and confrontational anecdotes. The trainers and consultants he has selected for StIPS have all  been selected because of their international profile and experience thus contributing to the knowledge on intercultural communication within StIPS.

Concepts such as ‘hierarchy‘, ‘power distance’, ‘masculinity’ and ‘individualism‘ all play a role in our communication. They shine through in our speeches, emails and even in our out-of-office messages. But even such seemingly neutral elements as ‘time perception’ play an important role in making that connection with your client.  What works in one country or organization might not work in the next!

And culture is not only defined in terms of nation states. We also look at male and female communication styles in our lecture: Female communication in a male dominated environment.

The StIPS provides specific lectures on this topic for organizations, companies and universities. Lectures that will help you to understand the role of culture in communication and that will teach you how to adapt your style. We look at international and Swedish communication styles and show you how you can prevent making an intercultural mistake.  Our lectures on intercultural communication have been a great success for a full house at the Stockholm and Uppsala Chamber of commerce as well as at other (international) organizations.
