  • what is expected of a good employee

  • how to communicate in multinational teamwork

  • concepts of time, schedule and deadlines in different working cultures

  • attitudes to rules, structure, technical discipline, paperwork

  • decision-making, persuasion and presenting in various cultural contexts

  • values, motivation and engagement of diverse workforce

      and more.

Leadership of Multinational Teams

When everybody in a team speaks the same language managers often make the assumption that they think in the same way. But this is not so. People put into the same English or German words different meanings - based on the different mental programming that is conditioned since birth by their culture of origin. 

We are uniquely positioned to command the combined consequences of National and Organizational Culture for global business management.
