The Client-Specific Intercultural Company www.kamelionworld.com 1 This workshop helps you maximize teamwork and strengthen performance among your global and virtual teams; it provides practical tools to develop strategies for international teambuilding. In times of crisis, more than ever, managers have no time to waste: they simply want things to happen. Workshop overview With globalization sweeping the world, your organization faces significant new opportunities and challenges. Mergers & acquisitions, strategic alliances, reorganization within international groups, the mobility of your workforce …all these situations have shaped your professional landscape creating new international teams. Whether you manage people from other countries or work in geographically disperse teams, you need to find ways to connect your co- workers from very different cultural backgrounds. Today, it is generally acknowledged that a Global Team can generate higher on-time performance, but only if differences in perception and understanding are first understood, second acknowledged and then leveraged for quick gains in performance. This is what you will discover during this one-day interactive cross-company workshop focusing on the challenges of global teaming. You will first get to understand of why and how multicultural teams often generate frustrating management dilemmas and create substantial obstacles to effective teamwork. You will then practice with new tools that enable you to build team cohesion & participation, create and maintain trust and improve cross-cultural communications & people management skills. Last but not least, you will be challenged, through a selection of real-world business situations, to modify your leadership style, define the right strategy to value cultural differences empowering individuals to perform at their peak level. Who should attend? The workshop is designed for team leaders who need to mobilize multicultural, co-located or geographically dispersed teams to implement strategic organizational goals. Participants may be new to the managerial role, or they may have held a managerial role for some time. What will I be able to do after participating? - You will be able to recognize underlying cultural effects in team work performance. - You will learn to communicate more effectively both face-to-face and virtually. - You will come up with team-building strategies to keep your global/virtual teams together and on track. - You will find questions to your burning questions and apply the lessons learned to your individual business context. Your Day: Sample Contents “Getting Things Done in an International Team” is a one-day interactive session that leverages the experience of the participants and encourages hands-on learning through the use of videos, discussions, role plays, self-assessments and the creation of action plans.
