In today’s business environment more and more people are relocating to new countries for work purposes. This uprooting generates feelings, challenges and opportunities not only in the work environment but also in the private sphere. The ability to communicate with others from different cultures will give a newcomer a head-start in succeeding in a placement abroad. Competence in intercultural communication is essential not only to prevent misunderstandings and to be able to negotiate efficiently with colleagues and other contacts but also to integrate smoothly in a new environment.
