Mastering International Teams

Share: 
Intercultural competence is one of the basic skills necessary in an actual business world.

International teams are more and more frequent at workplaces. Nevertheless, the simple “collection of cultures”, it means professionals with different cultural backgrounds, is not enough. Multicultural environments creates challenges that can be faced up by managers and professionals who are culturally competent, it means they are able to act in an effective and natural way above cultural differences. When they miss these skills, misunderstandings and conflicts appear. In spite of an effective collaboration, deep root stereotypes consolidate.

 

During these training we offer an insight into many crucial issues related to collaboration in international teams. How can we communicate effectively understanding and taking into account different communication styles? How can we conciliate contradictory values, attitudes and perspectives avoiding hasty interpretations? How can we assign roles and tasks in a culturally adequate way? How to motivate and evaluate work performance? How to increase capacity of an international team?

 

Having answers for these questions and developing skills that allow us integrate them into our work make us fit for taking advantage of cultural differences and convert them into real team strength. Additionally, a development of intercultural competence is enrichment for an individual professional career of each employee.


We evaluate the cultural profile of a team and its members using an online tool CultureActive.
