Dealing with Communication Issues in Meetings

a FOKUS COMPACT Workshop for German

Successful Meeting Skills: Turn-taking and Contributing

Dealing with Communication Issues in Meetings

Die Deutschen haben in der Wirtschaft den Ruf, kalt und unhöflich zu sein.
Dies ist das Ergebnis kultureller Unterschiede. In Deutschland wird sehr direkt formuliert. Diese Direktheit wird unterschiedlich aufgenommen und toleriert. Dagegen können subtilere Formulierungen anderer nicht deutschen Muttersprachler die Kommunikation erschweren.

Our focus in terms of content:
How to interrupt politely
How to check the meaning of a specific word
How to ask for clarification
How to ask someone to repeat themselves
How to ask someone to slow down
How to check if everyone understands you
How to adjust your own German to make it easy for others to understand
Building confidence – why do we „lose the words“ when we speak
