Building Effective Teams Globally
A couple of years ago, View Magazine called our series, Diversity: Creating Success for Business and People "one of the best products about diversity on the market." And customers agreed!
Now, we can offer you a follow-up series from the same company, ARMC. Building a Diverse Workforce for the Global Millennium is a 20-volume series that covers a huge variety of diversity issues.
Each program also presents critical business concepts like building trust and respect, performance appraisals, team building and leadership.
Program 13: "Worlds Apart: Building Effective Teams Globally"
Different cultures have different approaches to problem solving and project management. In the global economy, it is increasingly important for every team member to be aware of these differences as they move forward on projects.
In this scenario, you will explore the differences in values and the importance of work and life between a Japanese employee and a Latin employee. You’ll explore different approaches to work and communication, including body language, handling e-mails, and balance in work.
