Learning to Work in a Global Economy

The world is getting smaller. Enterprise-wide projects require an ability to embrace diversity, which means leveraging and appreciating differences. Local projects, too, often require work with remote teams.

 

Today’s global work force requires adapting skills necessary to collaborate with others in diverse group settings.  Success factors include:

  • Clear communication and information exchange
  • Common protocols for projects and information
  • Continuous training and experience sharing
  • Setting meetings across time zones
  • Accountability

Learning a second language and being aware of global diversity makes for greater understanding and tolerance of people who are different.

Being adaptable, culturally curious, and developing transferable skills is the best way to succeed in today’s new economy.
