Cross cultural trainers came from a wide array of backgrounds but the key skills of them remained almost the same. New friends, new family, new experiences, new tools. It is clear that a cultural awareness trainer carries an advanced understanding of intercultural learning concepts and has the ability to apply adult and experiential leaning principle while also facilitate participant-focused training approach. This workshop was highly experiential and participative. It consisted of short theoretical inputs, concrete exercises, and group discussions. Reflecting upon and applying each tool to your real-life cases from your everyday work, you will practise and gain new insights into your current dilemmas. The most important for me was the deep learning of Emotional Intelligence including emotional awareness, or the ability to identify and name one’s own emotions, the ability to harness those emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problem solving, and the ability to manage emotions, which includes both regulating one’s own emotions when necessary and helping others to do the same. Using new educational tools, you can give the chance for change, in every level, in every person. A magical experience. Thanks a lot.
The project «Facilitating “hot potato” topics with multicultural groups» in Daruvar was an amazing opportunity for me to develop skills and qualities that make a good facilitator. Through activities and workshops, I learned how to successfully handle conflicts and I acquired crucial skills that enable me to manage multi-cultural groups. Furthemore, I created a network with people around Europe of not only friends, but also of future collaborators and associates. Overall, the project was inspirational and the whole experience will be unforgetable to me.
The program in Daruvar, is very helpful and completed. From the daily sessions i learn new things about how to analyze a topic. In addition help me to contact and cooperate with other guy’s from different nationalities. Furthermore, I learned how to present a session as trainer. I believe it’s very significant and I use all of these techniques on my daily life.
