High-Performing Global Teams

International teams have the potential to create significant competitive advantage for global businesses. This is because bringing together different ideas, pools of knowledge and approaches to work can create innovative approaches to complex organizational challenges.

Unfortunately many international teams do not always create the value expected. Some work well while others struggle to perform to their full potential. Some individuals find it straightforward to work in a multicultural and virtual environment while others do not.

GTP specializes in customized training and coaching that builds the effectiveness, coherence and productivity of newly-forming, or pre-existing, international and virtual teams.

Our training provides a clears framework for understanding what distinguishes poor-performing cross-cultural teams from the high performers, and for equipping teams, and their leaders, managers and members, to add sustainable value to the global business through overcoming cultural barriers and integrating different ways of working.
