Multicultural Team Leadership

In global business life, culturally heterogeneous teams are often much more successful than culturally homogeneous teams because the team members bring in many different ways of thinking and problem-solving. However, multicultural teams need to face the challenge of pulling together first.

Only if multicultural teams are able to overcome cultural differences in communication, in building trust and relationships, or in understanding processes, hierarchies and management styles, will they find their way of working together smoothly. If all sides stick to their accustomed way of working though, a multicultural team’s results fall short of expectations while tensions rise.
