Maximize return of international teams
In today’s globalised business culture, learning how to work effectively with colleagues from different backgrounds is essential. Research frequently shows that intercultural competence contributes to breaking down barriers, strengthening relationships, improving decision making skills and stimulating innovative thinking. By minimising misunderstandings and day-to-day frustration, employers can increase productivity and improve financial results.
In any team, communication skills strongly correlate to project success and team output. When mixing team members of different cultures, communication becomes ever more complex, and relies heavily on the level of intercultural competence. Bottom line results shouldn’t be jeopardized by marginalizing the importance of cultural skills. Intercultural competence is fundamental to uphold employee satisfaction, maintain retention rates, and improve financial results.
