Integral Education. Train the Trainer | New integral trainings at interkultura in 2017 | ONLINE
Our new Train the Trainer Program is explicitly based on Integral Theory and will serve as an invitation to other educators and students to explore how elements of Integral Theory might support their own efforts towards embracing more inclusive, comprehensive, and integral education.”Integral” means many things to many people, and the same is true for our “Integral Train the Trainer” program. For us the integral approach means to integrate the best of conventional and alternative approaches to Trainer Training. Our integral model situates progressive educational ideas within a larger transdisciplinary web of ideas about culture, psychology, philosophy, science, etc., and aims at equipping all levels of trainers and leaders with the right tools to be effective teachers and facilitators, including key aspects such as training planning, designing, delivering, and evaluating. Our goal is to produce highly qualified trainers who can undertake courses autonomously. More information and registration here.

Intercultural Team Development | January 2016 trainings in Poland

Leadership For Women | new trainings at interkultura in 2015
In today’s large organization, as women climb up the corporate ladder they vanish. While the statistics vary slightly around the world, this is an extremely consistent pattern. At the lowest levels, more than half of the employees in organizations are female. As you move to each successively higher level in the organization, the number of women steadily shrinks. At the CEO level, worldwide, there are only 3% to 4% who are women. We find this to be a puzzling, even mysterious phenomenon when you examine the hard data that describes the overall success that women have when placed in successively higher leadership positions. It is even more curious when you analyze the success they have in those functional areas that have traditionally been dominated by males….read more

February 2014 | Article from Dr. Anna Storck in Personel PLUS, Poland
Multiculturalism. How to deal with it? We are no longer so naïve as to think we can simply bring people from all parts of the world together and expect them to integrate or work together. Multiculturalism is a complexissue with potential for both disaster and opportunity. Is it time to revisit our approach to diversity? Nowadays, Poland possesses perhaps the most culturally homogenous society in the whole of Europe population of 36 million people who are overwhelmingly Polish-speaking by language, and overwhelmingly Roman Catholic by religion, and overwhelmingly patriotic in their political views. This present state of affairs – of an exclusively Polish Poland – differs radically from the picture of Poland as it existed for more than a thousand years up to the Second World War. Historic Poland as distinct from the Poland of today, was a multinational state of vast proportions. At one time between the 15th and 17th centuries, it was absolutely larger than Russia and was not only the homeland of most of the Poles in Europe, but also the homeland of almost all the Ukrainians, Belorussians and Lithuanians, of several million Germans, and of the principal Jewish community in the world… read all (PDF document in Polish)
January 2014 interview with Dr. Anna Storck in PLUS BIZNES, Poland
“What does YES mean in India?” and other cross cultural competence and solutions to international business”. In our globalized and outsourced/off shored world we are now working across different cultures and communication styles. This has given rise to a number of cultural challenges, further exacerbated by working remotely across distance and time zones. So what we may take for granted in terms of working style and communication in Poland, for example, can be very different in other cultures, giving rise to misunderstandings, time delays and poor business relationships. This of course impacts the bottom line! The short but very powerful word “yes” encapsulates and reflects cultural differences and is one of the biggest sources of frustration and loss of trust. How is this so? read all (PDF document in Polish)

SIETAR FORUM 2012+38, International Conference 27-29 September 2012 in Berlin, Germany
Everybody is talking about the need for radical change, and some are even starting to see solutions in each field: politics, medicine, economics, society, etc. However – and most of us forget – “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” (Einstein) To solve the problems, we have to move to the next level of consciousness and communication. We “interculturalists” are confronted, in our working areas, with the question of which intercultural competence is going to be required for the level of “cosmopolitan communication” in the future. To answer this question we need a good future-oriented “map“ that can show us the evolutionary process of communication. In the SIETAR Forum 2012+38 we went, on the basis of a map (AQAL Model from Ken Wilber), one step towards the paradigm shift of intercultural communication by dealing in numerous events with the following questions:
- How shall our communication in the future (2050) – cosmopolitan communication – be?
- How can intercultural competence be developed in order to make “cosmopolitan communication” possible?
- How can various training approaches in areas of mind, brain, culture and system be integrated?
