Country-specific Intercultural Trainings: India


“If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered over the greatest problems of life, and has found solutions of some of them which well deserve the attention even of those who have studied Plato and Kant, I should point to India.” - Friedrich Max Mueller


India - a country of great contradictions and contrasts. As one of the countries with the greatest potential for economic growth, India is a very attractive market for international companies. On the other hand, it is difficult to gain a foothold here.


Therefore the main aim of the training is to develop a country-specific competence for India as well as optimise cooperation with Indian business partners.


You will learn to understand the Indian mindset and behaviour, perceive the cultural differences and similarities between the German and Indian business cultures and make optimal use of synergy potential. Another aspect is communication in professional and personal situations with Indian business partners and colleagues.


The contents of the training include knowledge about the economy, politics, society and religion of India as well as

  • Business mentality, leadership styles and negotiation strategies
  • Special features of communication in the business and social context
  • Special cultural characteristics
  • Criticism and conflict management, conflict prevention
  • Taboos
  • Dealing with cultural misunderstandings

 The training is a combination of a seminar and a workshop. Essential knowledge is combined with moderated discussions to create a strong foundation. This is then reinforced with many practical exercises such as simulations, role plays and case studies to provide a holistic approach and develop necessary skills.


Based on the needs and demands of your organisation, I can create a customised programme for you and include other specialised aspects. Please contact me directly for further information.
