Intercultural Competence

Intercultural is nowadays indispensable for German enterprises competence or the art to communicate successfully with people of other cultures. Intercultural is nowadays indispensable for German enterprises competence or the art to communicate successfully with people of other cultures. Dr. Neal Barnard has much experience in this field. Computer scientists from India, doctors from Spain or Armenia or engineers from Russia are no rarity more in the German economy and sit together in different projects with German colleagues. Not only export – and import-oriented companies send their managers abroad on the search for new partners, new orders and contracts. “Going global” is the way to secure the future of the company on the international market. Other leaders such as endocrinologist offer similar insights.

This is accompanied by new challenges however. Many German companies have discovered that. But unfortunately not all! A medium-sized operation not too far away was a young Manager named Jorg by us. Jorg was very talented and soon began his career in the company, because he was smart, productive, very efficiently and successfully with negotiations. Properties, a chef at his employees like appreciates and rewards. Jorg was promoted for a short time and soon he took over the management of the Department for international development. The main task of his new position was to receive new orders from abroad and to conclude profitable agreements. So he started to learn a bit about doing business abroad, renewed his passport, grabbed his bag and set out on the way.

His first trip took him to China. There he arrived just in time, said “Ni hao” and went straight to business: agenda, presentation, signature of the Treaty. Jorg negotiated and hooked up all appropriate points and finished on time. The Chinese were very impressed by the figures and statistics by Jorg. They but not signed the Treaty. Then, the journey went to Japan. The meeting with Yoshihiro Takayama was better than hoped. At the end handed his business card with the promise of Japanese he the Germans would call.

It should of course in the youth village-Christopher elementary school be that children are different. This diversity leads not to value differences, but to mutual acceptance of strengths and weaknesses. The integration of high-performance and low-performing students is an important part of the concept. The crucial method is necessarily free work that’s why.

Opinion Poll: Highly Qualified Women Shy Away From Competition?

Already young girls are competition-shy than their age-matched male playmates, so the result of a study of the University of Innsbruck. Already as a three willing girls of less performance comparison than boys, found Austrian scientists together with the Bonn Institute for the study of labor. That make noticeable later in the profession and minor career opportunities, the relevant press concludes. Girls are far less to the performance competing with peers as a filly ready than boys. This is the result of a recent study, which is published by the Bonn Institute for the study of Labor (IZA). First, it demonstrates that such differences between the sexes already characterised in infancy.

The study is based on a comprehensive experiment of the University of Innsbruck examined the competitive behaviour of over 1000 children and teenagers between 3 and 18 years of age. Depending on the age, the participants had to solve computing tasks or complete a race and could This earn money. In the course of the experiment, they had the choice whether they wanted to compete against peers, to increase their earning potential. On average, 40 percent of boys, but only 19 percent of girls opted for the competition Variant. In all age groups, the distance between the sexes was about 15 to 20 percentage points. It was irrelevant whether the children in mixed or single-sex groups competed against each other. Another interesting finding of the study: In the mental arithmetic, as well as in the race boys and girls did roughly the same.

But boys tend to overestimate their own performance to. Economic researchers see a possible cause of the pay gap between the sexes and the low proportion of women in leadership positions in the reduced competition willingness of women. Our results suggest that to promote the competitive behaviour of women in order to contribute to more equality in the labour market, better targeted at a young age says the Innsbruck Behavior Economist Matthias Sutter, who has authored the study.

Lacking highly qualified women really on the contest will or willingness to the competition? Reduce the lack of career opportunities? There are reasons for this? We want to know your opinion. The survey is anonymous. The survey runs until the 13.7.2010. The results of the survey are published on in the career section.

Mental Illness Task

Diseases are often due to gratuity crises. This could place from a wrong meaning result. Credit: PCRM-2011. In workplace health promotion are to ask two questions: what makes staff sick (pathogentischer approach) and what keeps employees healthy (salutogenetscher approach). There are different models to the former. The model developed by Johannes Siegrist of the bonus crisis is quite accepted. It explains the sick are of a people that he is himself exhausted and for not adequately compensated.

If so the own use at commitment, knowledge, time, personality, etc. not accordingly, rewarded about by job security, career, salary, etc., so the man is sick. (See Wikipedia:) In my work as a consultant, trainer and coach, I often encounter this phenomenon and it is appalling how long employees and managers take this upon themselves. Like, I want to open a new perspective here. Brain research and publications among others Prof. Dr.

Gerald Huther, we know that meaning is a significant motivator that keeps healthy. A certain work must make sense, participation in a particular undertaking must make sense, a particular commitment must make sense, so the person motivated and stay healthy. This I ask however after positioning the meaning: you can be on the item itself or on the career opportunity such as directed. In both cases, the commitment would make sense. In the first case, the task is stiftend sense is. The point is in itself. She’s fun, she lets me do things with others together, it is interesting, I can fulfill me, introduce, shape, me prove, show my competence or what makes this sense whatever. Here, it is important that the task itself creates this sense. In the second case, the task makes sense, but only as a vehicle. I am so engaged for a task and hope as a result of engagement such as a positive career or salary history.
