We are all products of our culture, the things that define who we are. Yet most of us are unaware of our own culture until we experience another.
Culture represents our language, our literature, music, architecture, behaviors, food, art. It also represents our values and beliefs, our expectations of others and ourselves, our sense of self, attitudes and prejudices, the way we learn and the way we do business.
As we work more in teams located around the world we will encounter differences in the way organizations view business processes. Assigning people to company teams, like virtual teams on Zoom, brings together an amalgamation of cultures.
Mobilizing individuals from different countries and cultures without looking at cultural differences can create misunderstandings that may jeopardize the outcome of a project or meeting.
We offer training and individual counsel to help companies avoid these intercultural misunderstandings. Contact us to learn how.
