Multi-cultural & Remote:

A Roadmap for Team Effectiveness

Thursday July 16th 2020 10am EDT

3 Simple Questions:


Are you part of a team at work?


Do any of them work in different locations than you?


Is the team made up of different nationalities, cultures or backgrounds?

If you've answered yes to all 3,

then you are facing

a trifecta of potential chaos!

Not only do you have to help the team work together effectively, you have to do that with some working remotely!  Add to that the complexity of working with different nationalities and cultures, and you’ve got a lot of potential frustration. 

Without effective strategies in place, miscommunications lead to team dissatisfaction, decreased engagement and even burnout, missed deadlines, unhappy customers and ultimately, missed revenue targets and high employee turnover.


All of this can end up costing a fortune and leaving everyone on the team with a massive headache.

But what if you could be part of a high performing, cohesive team?


. . . a team where members have trust and connection

. . . a team that collaborates, that communicates smoothly 

. . . a team that rapidly and productively handles any conflicts


and, ideally . . . 


. . . a team whose output is more than the sum of its parts


and maybe even . . .


. . . a team that has fun together in the process!

Join us on July 16th to find out how to make this happen on YOUR team!





So how do you help your team operate at peak performance?

Even if you're not the leader!

By understanding the fundamentals principles of high performing teams and learning to apply them within your team

By learning how to adapt those principles specifically to a remote environment

By adapting work practices to ensure all cultures and work styles are provided for
