Ever wondered about global companies’ great work and success despite cultural differences? Have you thought about how productive they are? And do you think it is possible to team up and stick with folks who are thousands of miles apart?
Imagine a lot of people are in one place, and each of them has different culture, knowledge, and experiences. What would you do to unify them?
Aside from relying on our universal language, there are various tools we can use to connect everyone, including how their workflow will work and the whole system. That would be something someone would say when unifying a team. But what would you do about their cultural differences? What would you do about the difference in their attitude towards work? And how would you utilise those differences to become an asset to your business?
Well, in this blog, we’ll dive deep into the world of working across borders to open the door to this diverse global opportunity that fuels creativity, innovation, and fresh thinking in the workplace that can help you see the silver lining in those differences!
Here are the reasons why you should be working in a cross-cultural diverse team!
Cross-culture promotes personal growth and new perspectives.
When working with people from different cultures, you expose yourself to new ways of thinking, working attitude, and strategies that will help you and your future global team to well understand how vast the world is and make it smaller within your team. Improving one’s personal growth can also be experienced when working with different people with different cultures, and help you enhance your ability to adapt and relate to people from diverse backgrounds.
Filta Community has lots of people with cultural differences but are able to make things possible because we embrace these differences and enjoy everything which helps us grow together and share different perspectives.
Working in a cross-cultural environment develops cultural intelligence.
Yes, it is! It will help you function effectively when working in a diverse team. Cultivating cultural intelligence allows you to navigate different customs, negotiate effectively, and build strong relationships across cultures.
When working with diverse and cross-cultured people, you can familiarise yourself with the basics of how to interact in a diverse market with different preferences, behaviours, and even industries, creating potential avenues for collaboration and career advancement. The more cultural intelligence you possess, the wider your access to the global market becomes.
