20./21. Oktober 2017: Negotiation in Daily Life and Business: Reach Your Goals – Clever and Calm

Workshop des International Career Service der Goethe-Universität im Rahmen von Kompass³. Referentin: Anja Henningsmeyer, Leiterin der hessischen Film- und Medienakademie Frankfurt

Content:

In daily life we negotiate on numerous occasions: for prices, projects, our own needs, and many more.

If you take a systematic approach to negotiation, allowing you to understand and reflect upon your personal negotiation style - which may be influenced by the culture you come from - and if you know how to adopt appropriate negotiation strategies and leverage, then you will increase your power to achieve agreements on your own terms.

This two-day seminar (in the English language) aims to expand your self-awareness and negotiation abilities. Film sequences from the US-series House of Cards will illustrate keys to successful negotiation. An intercultural case study will round up the seminar.

Target group: students from all faculties.

Content of the seminar:

  • Preparing for your negotiation
  • Negotiation strategy and tactics for flexible acting
  • How to avoid typical negotiation mistakes

Learning objectives:

After completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand their negotiation style, its strengths and weaknesses
  • Understand the psychology of influence, based on five key factors
  • Use insights from the FBI and the latest neuroscientific research to deal with stressful negotiations

10. November 2017: Business English in One Day - Meetings, Negotiations, Small Talk, Email

Workshop des International Career Service der Goethe-Universität im Rahmen von Kompass³. Referent: Andrew Cerniski, English Inc.

Content:

In the spirit of Tom Stoppard’s 15-Minute Hamlet, this workshop packs into just a single day almost all major topics from the field of business English. You will practice core and sometimes challenging work-related situations and gain some of the most helpful insights regarding: running a meeting, negotiating, handling difficult telephone calls, writing e-mails and making small-talk. (Five “Acts” – just like Hamlet!) Along the way, we’ll address relevant principles, vocabulary and grammatical structures. The discussions we have and exercises we do are diverse and offer frequent, spoken practice. The workshop is held in English by a native speaker, and participation requires an intermediate level of English or above.

To be, or B2B – that is the question!

Registration: Max. 25 participants; register here!

30. November 2017: Present Like a Pro: Improve your Public Speaking Skills

Workshop des International Career Service der Goethe-Universität im Rahmen von Kompass³. Referent: Andrew Cerniski, English Inc.

Content:

Presenting can be exhilarating and can also create anxiety. The goal of this workshop is to help you experience more of the former and less of the latter, in particular when addressing a group in English as a non-native speaker. We’ll focus on starting and ending your talk strongly, sustaining interest, moving through your material smoothly, projecting confidence and authenticity and dealing effectively with audience questions, including challenging ones.

Registration: Max. 25 participants; register here!

08. Dezember 2017: Internationals in the German Labour Market

Workshop im Rahmen von Kompass³. Referenten: Anne Kronberg & Philipp Wronker 

Content:

With an increasingly globalized economy German businesses need an international workforce. Without migration, big and small companies lack skilled employees – not only for demographic reasons but also because they need highly qualified specialists. Nevertheless international college graduates – especially those from non-Western Europe – may be confronted with inequalities and discrimination in the labour market. On average, they have to submit more applications to get a job and are paid less than equally qualified German candidates. These disadvantages tend to be even greater for women of non-German origin.

How is today’s labour market organized? Which are the main access doors to get a job? Which barriers may internationals face when looking for a job and what role does discrimination play? How can we deal with it in order to find our way into employment? Within the workshop these questions will be addressed from a sociological and practical point of view.

Objectives of the Workshop: The Participants…

  • Know about the structure of the German labour market
  • Know and are able to apply strategies to deal with structural inequalities
  • Reflect on ways to get into employment

Topics:

  • Structural inequalities of the German labour market
  • Significance of Social, Cultural and Human Capital within the distribution of job opportunities
  • Discrimination and the situation for internationals looking for work in Germany

Registration: Max. 25 participants; register here!
