Interactive Activities to Build Your Remote Team focuses on the influence of culture on global virtual teams. There are two videos in this series. Part 1 describes some of the challenges and successes of global virtual teams and the impact of high complexity on these teams. Part 2 looks at some of the differences among cultures and provides five actions to boost team performance.
There are also two quick reference guides that accompany the videos.
- The Influence of Culture offers quick tips (Dos and Don’ts) for communicating with others from different cultures.
- Cultural Dimensions provides brief descriptions of each of Geert Hoofstede’s cultural dimensions that describe differences among national cultures.
