Areas of competence
Diverse cultural perspectives can inspire creativity and drive innovation and greater opportunity for personal and professional growth. At the same time, professional communication can be misinterpreted or difficult to understand across languages and cultures. And possible conflicting working styles across cultures do not make it easier. With working across cultures, there often will be both benefits and challenges.
In Estonia, work across multicultural lines is developing and International House Tartu supports Estonian practitioners as well as newcomers to adapt to each other´s expectations and get through misunderstandings (they are inevitable - and normal!).
We offer consultation and support for HR managers, teachers, doctors, municipality officials and other Estonian specialists who work with foreigners and try to see how to prevent some of the problems to arise.
