Cosmopolitan Communication – Foundations

To solve increasingly complex global issues, we need competencies in interpersonal- / intercultural- / organizational communication. This course help you take a step toward the next phase of human communication. In so doing, you will develop a new level of awareness - global integral competence - which incorporates a more complete human and societal dimension of experience (body, mind, culture, system).

Course Description

Educators, trainers and researchers have spent much time and energy developing communicative competence for children, students, business people, and people in conflict areas. However, there are still an overabundance of global issues (ethnic and religious conflict, business and political tensions, migration, global leadership crisis, the environment, economic tensions, etc.) that cannot be solved in isolation. Instead, we need competencies in interpersonal- / intercultural- / organizational communication, which help us work with the wholeness of an increasingly complex, globalized world.

In this course, you will take a step toward the next phase of human communication: ‘Cosmopolitan Communication.’ In so doing, you will develop a new level of awareness – global integral competence – which incorporates a more complete human and societal dimension of experience (body, mind, culture, system).

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe a number of theories on communication
  • Explain the evolutionary process of communication
  • Demonstrate “Transparent Communication”
  • Apply holistic communication in the ‘person-in-conversation’ and ‘energy-in-conversation.
