How to succeed in a Cross Cultural workplace
November 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm£10
Today most businesses are global by nature. Instead of working with suppliers and employees from our own cultures, a large number of us are working with individuals from around the world on a daily basis.
While it enables us to serve our customers better, these cross cultural conversations also give us more opportunities to misunderstand each other. Yet how we are thinking about working effectively hasn’t change enough, and we often still stuck talking about management as if we were working in a mono culture world according to a Forbes article.
Recognising and navigating through these differences has a profound impact on the performance of individuals and the overall team, improving the bottom line, efficiency and team moral.
Cultural differences such as communication style, importance attached to relationship building, expectations of professional vs personal life, management style play a role on team performance.
