Building and Managing a Strong Multicultural Team


Because individuals with different cultural backgrounds have very different cultural biases and predispositions, building and managing a multicultural team can be challenging. Culturally different team members can have very different thinking about being an effective member of a team. 

This can result in a variety of cross-cultural team obstacles such as culturally-different members having different perceptions on what makes a good team member; what is appropriate team participation and behavior; the appropriate way to share information; a reluctance to share information; different decision making approaches; the value of a team approach; and how to handle team disagreements. 

We enhance the value of this seminar by incorporating in the seminar a highly regarded Cultural Profile Report that enables team members to identify and understand their own unique Cultural Profile.  We also offer a Cultural Gaps and Barriers Report which identifies what significant cultural gaps and barriers an employee will have with the team members having a different cultural background.  It also recommends the adaptive behaviors they should follow when engaging with a culturally-different team member.

Complimentary Post-Training Support

For our clients who have asked us for a customized seminar, we provide complimentary post-training support to make sure they achieve the highest possible ROI from their investment in cross-cultural training from our company. Specifically: Implementation Coaching; Monthly Cultural Events Report; and Cultural Profiles.

For a complimentary discussion on how I might assist you, please go to the Contact Bill tab of this website; or send me an e-mail at bill@crossculturalconnecting.com; or call me at 905-599-6365.

I’ll do my best to respond to you before the end of the business day.

Thank you,

Bill
