DJW members Dr. Rolf Schlunze and Silvia Lawrence would like to invite you to the open meeting of DJW Working Group Intercultural Management.
All our meetings start with a kick-off presentation on various subjects, followed by an open question-guided discussion. The meetings usually last one hour. During the past few months, we discussed trust building in general in German-Japanese teams and also toughness and humanity or empathy. Starting from September, our discussions focus on the creation of cultural synergy. Aligned with the wider agenda and interest of our fellow DJW members, we wish to promote competent cultural exchanges.
In December 2021 and January 2022, our topic is "The cultural dimension in mediation and systemic counseling". Developed and designed for solutions to existing problems, systemic consulting and mediation are professional methods geared to support people and to accompany them during the resulting processes of change. Our perceptions, values, and patterns of behavior are shaped by the social and cultural environment we grow up in. Accordingly, cultural aspects play a significant role for mediation and systemic consulting.
In part 1 in Decemper 2021, Karin Yamaguchi spoke about cultural aspects in systemic consulting and coaching. In part 2, Christian von Baumbach will focus on mediation in a German-Japanese context.
DJW members Karin Yamaguchi (systemic consultant) and Christian von Baumbach (mediator) view themselves as intermediaries, bridge builders between Japan and Germany, supporting people rooted in or connected to both countries, such as bi-national families and international teams. In this DJW Working Group Meeting, Karin and Christian will share their experiences regarding the cultural aspects in mediation and systemic consulting, followed by a discussion with the participants.
