1-day training "Effective Communication in Global Virtual Teams" on Dec 9 in Amsterdam, NL 

As organizations expand globally, tasks and responsibilities are often relocated across the globe. The colleagues that we work with are no longer in the same building, but in various countries that we hardly know. Often we haven’t met these colleagues and we just communicate by telephone, mail or in videoconference. We are expected to work towards the same goal but communication is complicated due to different backgrounds: those are the challenges in a virtual team. Developing our understanding of other cultures and enhancing our situational communication style is key to increasing efficiency and realizing targets. More info
