So the article definitely captured our attention. The illusion that technology solves all problems associated with multicultural corporations, is just that, an illusion. As explained in the article conflict is inevitable in cross-cultural teams but the impact of those conflicts is a whole new ball game that conflict in a team that is co-located.
…based on interviews she’s conducted for her research, different cultures often have very different views on conflict and confrontation.Language is a central problem and the article gives some good tips on how to overcome those challenges. Being clear and definitions of terms needs to be clear.
If you are working in a multi-cultural team language team building adventures that focus on methods to give teams an approach to deal with the differences. Our BAFA BAFA program is a great resource that can help any multicultural global business.
