Cross-cultural team development
Cross-cultural differences present great challenges in multi-national teamwork, but different perspectives and approaches can also lead to great results if the team is set up wisely. In 4 to 6 days, an cross-cultural team is put together, adopting common rules for cooperation. Communication develops organically.
In a bi-national team, it’s best to carry out mono-cultural trainings first, for a more complete understanding of each other’s national culture. Here stereotypes can be explored to open up discussions. After a reasonable time all team members are gathered together. Now they are not speaking to each other, but with each other. The team reflects on what they have learned and what common rules they have worked out for ideal future cooperation.
It is also possible to replace the mono-cultural training with e-learning units.
When a conflict between employees of different cultures is solved, cooperation flourishes again. A professional mediation process brings an international team back on track.
Through cross-culturally adapted mediation methods, cooperation becomes again a co-operation. Interests and needs are separated and systems are integrated, with our experienced mediators help along the way.
