Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet… probably one (or more) of these programmes became your main communication tool when the pandemic kicked in.
No more meeting people in the office, talking to colleagues in front of the coffee machine, working with people face-to-face, dealing with stakeholders in designated meeting rooms or simply enjoying the interaction with others.
Your agenda is now fuller than usual. No locations, just links. Lots of them.

Life is about communication. We do it all the time. In different ways, forms and contexts. Everybody communicates and everyone has a culture. This analogy means that inherently, we all must communicate with people of other cultures. That is what intercultural communication is all about.
Intercultural communication is vital in the current globalised world, whether in your academic, professional, or private life. If you want to function in today’ society, you need to know how to communicate cross-culturally.
If employees, coachees or students count with the words to describe their feelings and needs, they will be better equipped to help themselves.
Being aware and sensitive to mental health is one of the most important things in life. Throughout the last decades, there has been a notorious progress regarding understanding the importance of taking care of one’s mental health.
What is the meaning of being aware of mental health?
It means taking care of you.
During the pandemic, people seem much more open to talk about mental illness and share their feelings and experiences than in the past.
“The cure for pain is in the pain,”
a quote that I read somewhere and got stuck in my mind. In fact, I believe it holds a powerful message about self-exploration, reflection and growth mindset. Bottomline is: there are no shortcuts to a balanced life.
Overwhelmed? Stressed? Cannot cope?
We all struggle at some point in life. There are moments we might feel we cannot make it orwill not make it through. Either when a relationship breaks down, we fail on a course, do not get the promotion we worked for or something else; as a matter of fact, we…
Reflection is essential in the development process of an individual. Often, we go through our days without thinking too much about our experiences. It does not mean that it is wrong, there are plenty of responsibilities we have and little energy left by the end of the day.
When we live new experiences, anything outside our comfort zone or simply different from the routine, there is often learning that can take place. To turn that experience into a learning one, we shall reflect on it.
Though, self-reflection is not an easy skill to master. Even tapping to it can be…
The term “positive psychology coaching” (PPC) was ﬁrst coined by Robert Biswas-Diener and Ben Dean in 2007. It has been deﬁned as “the study of the conditions and processes that contribute to the ﬂourishing (wellbeing) or optimal functioning of people, groups, and institutions” (Gable & Haidt, 2005).
As teachers, our goal is to lead our students to achieve specific learning objectives. Either in person or behind a camera, the outcome must be the same. The question remains: how do I engage my students when lacking physical interaction? How can I generate debate if I do not have the students in front of me? How to make my session dynamic?
In today's’ article, we will dive into five frameworks specifically designed and tested for a live webinar session.
Education is experiencing rapid change. In a matter of days, we were forced to move into a full-online programme. From small to large institutions.

You will find a long list of resources and activities to incorporate in any sort of teaching subject.
