Multicultural (Virtual) Team Coaching

We all work and produce results in relationship with others and often in teams. High performing teams are the motors of an organization. And more and more teams are culturally diverse, virtual and project-based.  It is essential for all of us to be able to work effectively in multicultural teams upfront.

Multicultural Teams are potentially more creative, innovative and produce better solutions for complex problems than mono-cultural teams do as they can use all the diverse perspectives in the teams. But they can realize their full potential only when conscious and intentional efforts are made in the forming, storming and norming process in the beginning.

Multicultural (Virtual) Team Coaching facilitates and accelerates this team development process. We work with the necessary ingredients of a high performing team such as psychological safety, clear shared goals and objectives, clear roles and responsibilities of team leaders and members and trust building among team members.

Coaching will help the clients make culturally sensitive implicit (unconscious) expectations explicit (conscious). It helps them become more aware of the impact of their “good” intentions on team members from various cultural backgrounds. Building on this awareness, client teams will align different expectations and design Culturally Sensitive Team Agreements that work for all the members. During the coaching process, teams will regularly revisit Team Agreements and work on the various challenges of teamwork as they emerge.

Global Leadership Development Training

Many clients have their own leadership development programs based on their corporate philosophy, leadership profiles and competences.

Many Truths complements these programs with Intercultural Leadership Modules. In these modules, leaders learn how to translate and embed the global corporate leadership profiles and competences of their company in various countries.

Alignment Coaching for Intercultural Conflicts

It can happen that business partners from different cultural backgrounds find themselves in a complex conflict situation and they seem not be able to resolve it by themselves. We help the clients in such a situation with Alignment Coaching. It helps the people involved in conflicts become more in alignment with each other by defining their common objectives. When the business partners find their common objectives and are willing to resolve conflicts together without blaming each other, they are likely to be able to resolve the conflicts.
