“I’m a strong believer that conflict between a group of people escalates because they fail to see one another. Culture is a big part of that,” says Christian Höferle, founder of The Cultural Mastery. Höferle is a cultural coach, trainer, and mentor for multinational organizations – or rather: for people who work globally. Based in Atlanta, he is German by passport, American by choice, Bavarian at heart, and people call him The Culture Guy. His passion is to help people discover commonality when they are overwhelmed by difference. His mission is to create peace by facilitating understanding, relating, and connecting.
