Red, Blue and Green - the Global Team

- network of Diversity Icebreaker / Trialogue consultants

Christiane Schnetzer

I work as a self-employed certificated intercultural trainer in further adult education and as intercultural consultant in various fields (education, train the trainer, expatriate support, migration/ refugees).

DI / Trialogue experience: I knew the DI/Trialogue from a workshop conducted by Piotr Pluta. I am convinced that it’s a perfect tool to raise people’s awareness of differences as a starting point to improve tolerance, respect and effective communication across cultures.

Background: 

  • Formal education from three universities and disciplines:
  • Master’s programme on intercultural competence, “Donau-University Krems”/ Austria
  • Part-time postgraduate course on environment and quality management (certificate), Hochschule für Wirtschaft und Recht, Berlin/ Germany
  • Study of petrochemical process engineering at Technical University “Bergakademie Freiberg”/Germany” (MEng)
  • Trainer in further adult education (WIFI Lower Austria, trainer certificate).
  • Professional experience in teams and cross-cultural context, and as expatriate (I have lived and worked in four different cultures and travelled to about 45 countries in the last 25 years).

Key areas of work: Intercultural counselling in connection with professional assignments abroad and expatriate
support and trainer in adult vocational training and train the trainer in intercultural issues.

Key competencies:

  • Flexibility
  • Openess and curiostiy
  • Empathy
  • Communication skills
  • Networking/connecting people

Languages: German (native), English (proficient), Italian (independend user), Norwegian (basic)

An interesting story you have about your DI / Trialogue application:
I love to use the tool in workshops and trainings. I am convinced the tool works very well in team building, especially in intercultural encounters.
