When your multilingual team needs communication coaching
and a better way to speak to each other effectively.
Do you have offices in two countries operating in two mostly independently in two different languages yet having weekly meetings in English?
Do some of the people in one country speak English, but not all, and none of the people in the other country speak the language of the other office?
Is your remote team globally located, all working in their second language? Does everyone feel similarly about these hard-to-understand conference calls that seem to lack a lot in terms of good communication?
Or is your entire local team from five or more countries, most working in their second language?
Multilingual teams are a huge advantage. They can drum up business in various countries, they can connect with people in other countries, they bring a diverse thought process and a slew of different ideas due to the varying backgrounds.
Yet, as Harvard Business Review states, “This can lead to miscommunication and friction, especially among team members who collaborate across borders. A company’s competitiveness may suffer as a result.”
If you feel the strain of communication in your office, consider SASS training, especially if you have a lot of native English speakers as well.
Slow down. Ask for Input. Simplify. Support Them.
