The goal of the course is to help us understand the root causes of why we do what we do. These insights open the door to fundamental cognitive/behavioral changes. This knowledge helps us more successfully navigate and connect with the world around us, and helps us make more more thoughtful decisions about the direction of our lives. According to Goleman (2006: 84–97) social intelligence consists of two components that again comprise several subcategories: Social awareness – primal empathy, attunement, empathic accuracy, social cognition, and social facility – synchrony, self- presentation, influence, concern.

it is argued that social intelligence is a necessary prerequisite for being a successful intercultural communicator. The latest research in the field of social intelligence is based on the social neuroscience which has been developed in recent years. The research findings of this young discipline are central to intercultural communication research. Until now, cognitive goals have typically predominated in intercultural training programmes, followed by behavioural ones. Affective training goals are often cited as a third typical component of intercultural training, but generally, less time and effort are spent on this part than on the other two. This may be because affective goals are considered to be of minor importance, or because the view that affective skills cannot be significantly improved by training still dominates. However, taking into account the latest findings of social neuroscience, it is argued that the affective is in fact the most important component in intercultural negotiations and should therefore be adequately represented in training programmes. An integrative approach to intercultural negotiations and training is proposed, based on the concept of social intelligence.
