The neuroscience of why we laugh, and the fundamental things about human social behaviour.
Peoples from different cultures see, interpret, and evaluate things differently, and therefore act upon them differently. In this dynamic, improvisation-based seminar, we learn to recognise that all behaviours make sense through the eyes of the person behaving. This training allows us to stand back from ourselves and gain power over our perceptions and reactions, creating an in-depth self-awareness that is at the helm of cross-cultural awareness.
Active listening – One of the largest barriers to good communication is that we do not listen to understand, we listen so that we can reply. Through repetition exercises and practice, our training helps participants not only hear better, but truly listen. Hearing is what happens when the music is on, but listening is when we understand the words that are being said.
Sensitivity to communication cues – Sometimes our perceptions of the messages of others is clouded by our own perceptions. This is a well-known phenomenon called cognitive bias. In our training, we help heighten people’s sense of truth and awareness to become more aware of our own biases, in order to improve discourse amongst colleagues.
Accepting the contributions of others – Our work relies upon making the other person look good, and treating each member of the team like poets, geniuses and artists. It not only forces us to accept the contributions of others, but celebrate them!
Letting go of ideas – When we feel we have a really great idea, it can be hard to let go. It can even be hard to realise we aren’t letting go. This training forces to work with the situation we find ourselves in, not the ones we want to find ourselves in.intercultural training, Interkulturelle Kompetenz, Multikulturalisierung

How do we acquire creativity? Can it be acquired? Charles Limb explores the neurological functions of creativity by studying jazz musicians and rap artists, highlighting the difference between artists’ work when they freestyle, or improvise, versus memorised information. His findings show a key link between improvisation and language.
When information is presented to a group, whether large or small, it must be compelling enough to hold their attention. This depends not exclusively on the content of the material, but largely on the manner of presentation. TLS Communication helps people learn how to hold the focus of an audience, and shift that focus when necessary. Being able to respond to a live audience intuitively is a skill, not a talent, and can be learned through our training.
