Keynote Synopsis
In today’s work environment, global teams are common place. However, many individuals are challenged to recognize and overcome the cultural barriers to collaboration and project success. “Why Do They Do That?” is developed for an international audience. In it, the audience will learn what culture is and contributors to cultural blindness. The presentation explores how different cultures solve problems, view time and use space differently resulting in conflicts within the team. Real examples of common collaboration cultural barriers are identified, and recommendations provided based on over 20 years’ experience of managing successful multi-culture teams consisting of US, Middle Eastern, Indian subcontinent, German, and Japanese cultures.
