Building the Virtual Team: Communication across Cultural Diversity
Program length: 18:00

As businesses increasingly outsource operations across the globe, it's essential that they train their people how to work across technology and in synch with other cultures. To survive in business today, one must master the often overlooked but potentially damaging impact of ancient culture on communications in the 21st century.

Ideal for team building exercises, Building the Virtual Team: Communication across Cultural Diversity observes a group leader and the problems she faces in virtual team management while struggling to lead her managers in Asia, India, Africa and Latin America.

Benefits of Building the Virtual Team include:

  • Realizing the importance of human relationships in many cultures
  • Discovering how impersonal communication can backfire
  • Learning how to balance high-tech and high-touch
  • Finding out how to deal with language and translation issues
  • Dealing effectively with time zones, response time, etc.
  • Understanding that awareness is a "two-way street" and all cultures need to adapt
  • Learning how to bridge differences and create a balanced approach
