Teams in the workplace -- Management, Leadership, Communication in organizations, Intercultural communication


In the continuously changing world, many companies cross over their national borders and do global businesses by recruiting employees from other cultures. They build cross cultural-teams to manage projects. In this report, various research journals, business reviews and academic papers are used to analyze the four main issues of cross-cultural teams. First, the communication issue in teams. Second, conflicts those evolve among team members. Third, the importance of leadership in cross-cultural teams. Fourth, the influences of different cultural attitudes on team members. Different perspectives of researchers are found to support these issues.
