Guide on international teams in business trainings
Intercultural environment is no longer something new or strange. We live in a globalised world where increased mobility and a revolution in communication techniques allow people from all parts of the world to meet anywhere. This means that the skills necessary to communicate in culturally diverse environments are absolutely crucial.
This guide has been developed by a partnership of former youth workers active in international and intercultural projects. After moving to the labour market they recognised a competence gap in the field of intercultural communication skills among businessmen. Typically, progress towards the negotiation of economically beneficial contracts was often frustrated by mistakes in communication and a failure to understand the different cultures of trading partners. This was visible in many countries. Seeing this, the project team decided to prepare a guide and share practical knowledge and experience with business representatives.
