We have an exciting new venture starting later this year. sfwork, in partnership with leading London-based cross-cultural specialists Coghill Beery, will be offering a new workshop – Solutions Focus for Cultural Diversity. The event is promoted by the Society for Organisational Learning Hungary, and we hope to attract participants from across Europe to Budapest for the workshop on 5-6 May 2011.
Research shows that while poorly-managed multicultural teams fare worse than average, similar but well-managed teams do much better. This confirms the idea that the diversity present in a multi-cultural team can be used to advantage, as long as the manager has the tools to do so. SF offers a wonderful set of practical tools to achieve this end. We will also be looking at the impact of virtual working with multi-cultural teams – a huge and growing issue for many businesses.
