Communication and Team Building
Communication -- Cultural aspects, Teams in the workplace -- Management, Communication in organizations, Intercultural communication, Culture shock
This report is a result of an extensive reading of the literature in the 70's on some challenging team issues. "Culture shock" was found to be a popular issue in those days. Culture shock adjustment shock models were previewed, with the overview and resulting effect on team performance presented in this report. Leadership was found to be rather dictated, by cultural biases, in most cases instead of personality indicators. Business views and results from researchers clashed. Arguments for teams and against teams were explored and are presented in this report. We conclude the report with our observations accumulated during our reading.
