Intercultural Training

Navigate successfully
through the VUCA world

The VUCA world demands a lot from companies. The challenges and requirements are volatile (V = volatile), uncertain (U = uncertain), complex (C = complex) and ambiguous (A = ambiguous). This is the field of tension in which employees and managers of today and tomorrow operate. Our customized (virtual) trainings & coachings offer effective levers for the development of relevant future competencies.

We are specialists in international collaboration, leadership development and diversity & inclusion. Whether executive, project lead or team member – we put your employees on the right orbit in terms of their personal competencies and potentials through intercultural coaching.

We are cross-cultural experts.
Our DNA is (inter-) cultural expertise. Accordingly, we can translate the challenges of the VUCA world into 75+ cultural contexts. The certified ICUnet trainer team accompanies you with business experience, cultural expertise and personality. Practical solutions and training modules that have their finger on the pulse of the times are at the forefront: from 21st Century Skills and Unconscious Bias to leading cross-generational teams.
We are digital.

The learning of today and tomorrow is changing dramatically. Your employees and managers are demanding modular learning platforms that are independent of time and location. We develop e-learning products and potential analysis tools in-house. We understand the development as a co-creation process, which we carry out together with our customers. After a needs analysis, we define exactly which skills are to be trained, what the training program should look like and how success can be measured. You set the requirements for our tools. We develop them to measure.

Competence development with the ICUnet Learnhub
Whether on the road, in the office or at home. Whether in Passau, Shanghai, Mexico City or Los Angeles. With Learnhub, ICUnet has developed an interactive e-learning tool that allows your employees to access podcasts and high-impact learning content at any location and at any time. With us, your team’s intercultural competence development is unbound by location and time, and just a few mouse clicks away.
Personnel selection and development
ICUnet works with psychologically based online testing procedures in personnel selection and development.

  • With IGP (Inventory for Global Potential), we use 13 factors to test whether your employees have the necessary competencies to perform in the “VUCA” working world.
  • With the TIS® (Test of Intercultural Sensivity), we assess the individual personality traits of your employees for you
  • With the IPT® (Intercultural Preference Tool) we record the individual cultural preferences of your employees. Convince yourself – The IPT® to try out
  • The I4ID® (Inventory for Intercultural Development) shows you the intercultural competence of your employees and how a goal-oriented and practice-oriented further development can look like.
