Teams across Cultures

Definitions of what a team is and how it should operate differ across cultures. In given situations, leadership styles vary from country to country. Modes of business communication can range from direct and explicit to highly formal and implicit.

So, active international teams need to bear in mind this dimension as they form, develop and solve problems on the way to achieving their purpose. This highly tailored workshop (no two are ever the same) deals with the cultural dimension to team-building and team-working. They are most successful when dealing with existing or newly formed real teams, as that makes the learning real rather than hypothetical.

Teams across Time-zones

Imagine your whole working team made up of the same nationality, speaking the same language and all located in one big open-plan office. How's the communication? Pretty easy. Unfortunately, it's also an unlikely scenario these days. Teams in multi-national companies tend to be temporary, project-based and composed of people from all over the world. How to lead such a team? How to keep levels of enthusiasm and energy at a high enough level to get things done? How to make the best use of the available technology?

This workshop addresses the issues of managing remote teams at a significant distance. It identifies key success factors and formulates an approach to "standard operating procedures" that makes a major contribution to achieving success in virtual teams.
