Part 3 Bringing it all Together:
Bringing it all together: 5 Strategies for high performing multicultural teams

You will join delegates from a wide range of industries, sectors and backgrounds to identify the key characteristics of high performing teams. Together, you will consider areas such as team processes and phases, effective communication skills and behaviours, team member diversity, and positive and negative team roles. You will also explore how to create a creative climate, and how to manage cross-cultural differences and conflict.
