11 Tips for Great Global Teams Edit Title

Why are native English speakers often the worst communicators on a global team, even though English is the only language used by all? What are people from different cultures really saying when they're not saying anything? How can a team culture trump national differences?

Those were just some of the topics covered during the 2012 Virtual Working Summit, led by my colleague Penny Pullan, President of Making Projects Work. In this article, I have paraphrased just a few of my favorite tips.

The first five tips come from Richard Pooley, Managing Director of Canning International Training and Development on the topic of: "How to be a successful communicator when working across borders in English." The last six tips come from Sanda Ionescu of the The Culture Broker on the topic: "Getting the Best Out of Cross-Cultural Virtual Teams." I hope you learn as much as I did as I listened in.
