Communication and Team Building
Teams in the workplace -- Management, Knowledge management, Communication in organizations, Intercultural communication
This paper examines the challenges that today's cross cultural business teams must overcome in order to be a cohesive and effective unit. The discussion relates cultures, communication, and behavior and their effects on teamwork. Teams must understand the effects of culture and how cultural differences can effect communication and behavior. Members must respect cultural differences, communicate through these differences, and subdue how these differences may cause conflict. Although team diversity brings challenges, teams that overcome these obstacles ultimately deliver great performance.
