Multicultural teams have many advantages, such as offering potential for more creativity and innovation in finding solutions. Yet diversity in teamwork can also be a source of misunderstanding, prejudice, and conflict that in the end can be challenging for all parties involved. How to make the most of this situation?
In this workshop, we will reflect on our own backgrounds, values and working style preferences. With reference to practical exercises and sharing of personal experiences, the students will get to know different strategies for assuring good multicultural teamwork and improve their conflict resolution skills.
We hope that this workshop will set a positive atmosphere of collaboration that celebrates and makes most of the diversity of all the stakeholders involved in this project.
