In today's globalized world, it is essential to know how to collaborate with people from different cultures. While this used to be the case primarily for country managers and those taking on overseas assignments, it now applies to all managers. But exactly how does one learn to become a better global collaborator?
- Be prepared to be uncomfortable
- Be aware of your actions
- Acknowledge differences
- Prototype instead of stereotype
- Build trust and be curious
- Whose culture practices should be adopted?
