Effectiveness of Multicultural Teams, or How to get the job done in Bulgaria

Part of Developing Intercultural Competence - the Hofstede Model world series: itim.org/open-courses/


When everybody in a team speaks the same language, business 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. 

This workshop concentrates on training participants to decode why people of different nationalities behave differently - and how to make them deliver the best results desired for business goals.

Effectiveness in Globally Diverse Teams is a two-day workshop which delivers:

•      Scientific foundations of behavior differences in intercultural setting

•      Insights how different cultural values translate into real-life business practices

•      Basic features of Bulgarian working culture and how to harness them for top performance

Participants leave with the understanding what it means in different cultures to be an effective leader, or top performer, to observe discipline and deadlines, to deliver quality, or customer service, to motivate and engage teams for achievement.
