Intercultural competence: Nothing shapes the image of a company as much as its ability to deal with different cultures. Thomas Baumer knows better than anyone how to unlock potential in a global environment and turn the unknown or incomprehensible into a success factor. He is a business economist with over 20 years of experience in the management of international companies. He has visited over 120 countries on business and private trips. His two-volume "Handbook of Intercultural Competence" is recognized by many experts as a standard work. Assessments and coaching are another area of his work. He developed and shaped key aspects of prognostic assessment. To date, he has conducted over 900 assessments and is a successful coach and consultant as well as a lecturer at several universities. He is the founder and managing director of Kairos Group AG, including the CICB Center of Intercultural Competence, CACB Center for Assessment and Coaching and proTalent Praxis für Psychologie und Coaching.
