You are colleagues. Working in global teams. Your success is based on collaboration. And that collaboration, in turn, is based on you understanding each other. Here is why 99 € is a worthy investment in your success:
On average, how many additional hours per week do you need to clear up cultural misunderstanding? Emails. Meetings. Videocalls. Let’s say at least one hour.
Not dramatic? Multiply that extra hour times forty-eight workweeks in a year. That’s six eight-hour days. Each and every year. Wasted. Unnecessary. Avoidable.
But wait, what if collaboration went smoothly? You would not only not waste time. You would save time. You and your colleagues would achieve better results.
There is no need to spell out the negative impact on motivation when cross-border collaboration is demanding too much time and is taking too much energy.
At best you’re slogging through the work. At worst you’re looking for ways to avoid it. You might even be looking to leave the project, the team, perhaps even the company.
Let’s make it the opposite. Everything is going well. You enjoy collaborating with colleagues in other regions. It energizes you. You’re highly motivated.
When cross-border collaboration doesn’t go well it can mean over budget, over schedule, delivering low quality results, or a combination thereof. Not good.
Take your current cross-border project. Go over budget by just 2%. Go over schedule by 2%. Reduce quality by 2%. Or any combination thereof. Certainly not good.
Let’s flip the scenario. Budget 2% under. Schedule 2% earlier. Quality 2% higher. Or any combination thereof. Good for the company, more importantly for you and your colleagues.
