Express Yourself

Use Language to Make an Impact

If employees, who normally speak German, have to explain complex situations in English, it is not unusual for them to be confronted with misunderstandings. They are often lacking the specialized terminology and intercultural experience; therefore they cannot express themselves adequately and attain the goals they have set for themselves. As I was born and raised in the US, I know both sides well and can support you in your efforts to learn to express yourself more appropriately and understand the other culture better.

Real Life Example

An employee of an HR department in Germany attempts to explain to the management of the parent company in the US why it is necessary to adhere to the German laws concerning maternity/paternity leave and the codetermination rights of the works council. She wants them to understand what the consequences are if the American company does not comply with these regulations.

The most important aspect here is a resolute, but at the same time diplomatic form of expression. I can support you when you need to express yourself skillfully and overcome linguistic stumbling blocks. Would you like to convince others of your ideas when you speak English and be sure that others understand your point of view?
