#Global Teams
Connecting with colleagues around the globe successfully in virtual and cross-cultural teams.
Working in global teams presents team leaders and members with additional challenges. The teams are based in a wide range of different locations in different countries with varied cultural influences.

The work predominantly takes place virtually. E-mail, chat, telephone, and web conferencing are some of the communication tools employed. The social distance is generally very great, which can have a direct impact on, for example, trust levels in the team or on team identity.
In training sessions for actual global teams, first of all a Team Check can be undertaken. An established coaching tool is used that depicts hard and soft factors and reveals the current situation. Afterwards, the next steps are defined together with the team.

In training sessions for members of global teams, influencing factors that have an effect on the performance of global teams are identified. Participants leave the training session with a comprehensive toolbox that they can use to positively influence the performance of their team.

If the team works predominantly virtually and cross-functionally, there is further potential for frictional losses. These are highlighted and minimized as far as possible.
I would be happy to provide you with a quotation based on your issues and goals. These training sessions can also be undertaken virtually.
"Many thanks again for the fantastic training session! I enjoyed it very much."

What Customers Say
Many thanks for a very successful seminar. I haven't been able to speak to all the participants, but what I have heard so far has been universally positive. I think you have left an excellent impression with us.

I wanted to drop you a message from my new home and give you a short update on my first 2.5 months in Shanghai, and especially to report on the implementation of your training content in practice …

First I want to say that without your training I’d have done pretty much everything wrong. I’m still not doing everything correctly. But at least I realize when I make a mistake and can explain to the Chinese why I acted so “German”.

Even after 2.5 months in China I am still happy here and enjoying the Chinese way of life. At the moment there is no sign of any culture shock … I have transferred significantly more responsibility to the employees, and I regularly look at and comment on the progress. I think I have been well-received here. At least that’s what my German colleagues who have been here longer say. The Chinese colleagues have suddenly knuckled down and work with enthusiasm. What is especially pleasing is that this week I received, together with my Chinese team, the first large order from my newly acquired customer.

I have a lot of fun with my Chinese colleagues. Especially in the introductions to the Chinese culture, which interest me greatly. Only when it comes to the food do I still have a few problems, especially with the picking off of turtle shell, although my Chinese colleagues insist that this is the tastiest of all the meats …

I wish you continued success with your training and can confirm that the information you give is absolutely correct …

Best wishes from Shanghai!

The ... World ... Convention in Beijing has been a tremendous success, for which your participation as one of our guest speakers has undoubtedly been of paramount importance.

I would like to seize the opportunity to thank you on behalf of ... for your excellent contribution to the Intercultural Workshop, and I hope that this experience has been as enjoyable for you as it has been for us.

I very much look forward to future opportunities of co-operation.

Great. Very knowledgeable. A wide range of different management tools, experiences, etc.
Many thanks again for the highly successful event. I would like to pass on my manager's feedback to you:

The training was undertaken well in terms of content and method.
The learned information is very helpful for the day-to-day work with the Asian colleagues.
The training is highly recommended for employees who are already working with Asian colleagues or who will be.
Overall, a great success, and one that was also very enjoyable.

"Many thanks for the interesting training. I was able to make use of my newly acquired knowledge on my very next trip to China."

(Limited company with 1,500 employees)
We have spoken with each other again about the seminar on Friday and both agreed that it was very helpful for us and above all very genuine. Above all the many concrete examples helped us a lot in better understanding the Chinese mentality. Many thanks again for the time you spent answering our questions.

From a company newsletter:
"Everyone was in agreement: excellent preparation for the country, for its people, for a foreign culture and ultimately also for our trade show appearance. Perfectly done, well prepared and the 'Chinese of Mindelheim' are highly motivated for the project."
