Working with Culturally Diverse Teams

Course Overview

Each human being is different and brings to the forefront his or her unique personality. When people are brought together in a team each brings these unique elements with them. The success or failure of a team depends on how well the differences and the similarities are then managed.

In a world that is getting smaller, people across countries and continents are doing business with one another. Understanding different perspectives and being aware of cultural nuances allows companies to create products and services for the global consumer.

As differences in work ethic, time commitment, business priorities, and communication styles are understood it lessens the challenges and frustrations that may have otherwise dominated the team dynamics. Misunderstandings among teams can lead companies to lose revenue. On an international level business deals may remain unsuccessful if teams cannot work through differences in their cross-cultural boundaries.

Understanding your team and maximizing its strengths is key to business success.
