Working in Multicultural Teams

Author(s): Johan Linder

Cross-Cultural Training

Multicultural teams are becoming more common both in the business world and the Christian world. We increasingly work with people from other cultures - and despite our best intentions, we find this can be difficult and uncomfortable. We can disagree over how decisions are made, what the leader should do, how the team should work...and an unexpected explosion can destroy our team.As challenging as they may be, as Christians we are compelled to work well within multicultural teams. An effective multicultural team can bear witness to the fact that Jesus has the power to overcome cultural differences and national boundaries. When we form such a team, we take a deliberate step towards God's goal of bringing together a great multitude from every nation, tribe, people and language. But what does this look like? How do Bible-based multicultural teams work in practice? This book aims to look at the most common issues that face multicultural teams, and better equip team members and leaders to address them, including:* our spiritual resources* choosing team members* preparing one's team* communication style* elements of effective team meetings* dealing with team changes* conflict resolution
