Have you or anyone you know said something like this recently?

“Will I have a job in the future?”

“I often think that “Millennials are hard to manage’”

“How do I get my diverse team working together?”

If so, I have some good news for you.

You are not alone

Global connectivity, smart machines, and new media are just some of the drivers reshaping how we think about work, what constitutes work, and the skills we will need to be productive contributors in the future. The next decade will bring massive changes to the way we work and learn.

The future demands new strategies to adapt and thrive. You can start today to develop the skills needed in the future.

Many people would like to communicate better with those from different backgrounds.

These strategies and skills can lead to easier communication, increased sales, more productive meetings, and better management now. It can also prevent offense and upset.

In fact, in today’s world of multinational teams and client lists, you must learn to cross cultural divides if you want to succeed. Why? Because culture is an integral part of us all, defining the way we treat others and ourselves.

Imagine how much easier, and profitable, life would be…

…if you could communicate effectively with anyone – regardless of where they come from.

Over the years, many professionals – managers, coaches, consultants and more – have learned how to cross (cultural) divides through my training and coaching services.

Profitability and People thrive through my unique STP Approach

Managers are more able to communicate with and motivate their staff, while coaches and consultants find their markets dramatically broadened – enabling them to take on clients from anywhere in the world.

Now I would like to offer you the same opportunity through my culture training system – the Safety, Trust and Presence Approach (STP for short).

Course leader

Edmée Schalkx, a Professional Certified Coach and Certified Mentor Coach with over 15 years of experience gained across Latin America, Asia and Europe.

This approach isn’t about specific cultures, it is not an anthropology lesson. I teach you something much more powerful – how to understand the common threads that bind us all, regardless of race, religion or creed, and how to use this knowledge to your own benefit and your organisation.

During the course you will learn how to:


Understand and use the principles of cross-border communication


Deal and communicate with people from a variety of different backgrounds



Create an inclusive presence, so that everybody trusts you and listens to you


Increase your cultural awareness



Appreciate & enjoy connecting with people with different ways of thinking


Create deeper connections with people



Recognise the impact of the skills required for the jobs of the future


Understand your own cultural biases and blind spots – and how to overcome them


After completing the course, you will be able to:


Communicate effectively with anyone, regardless of background



Reduce and avoid team conflicts



Help people from different backgrounds work together more effectively, thus boosting productivity



Empathise more, enabling you to see things from the point of view of others



Defuse difficult behaviour and situations through neutral and non-provocative reactions



Use cultural understanding to coach and/or manage more efficiently



Avoid causing cultural offence


Is this course for you?

My course won’t suit everyone. Your investment will work best if you want to improve your cultural competency and have at least five years working experience. Ideally, you should also be one of the following:


A coach, trainer or consultant with international clients, or ambition to coach globally


A manager in a diverse team/company
