💡 Cultural Differences: How to approach them in remote teams
In the modern world of internet and international businesses the boundaries between residents of different countries become more and more blurred. Very often we stick to the idea that knowing the language (mostly English, of course) would solve all the communicational problems, especially when working on remote and with remote teams in particular. But is it so? Is it enough?
During this session we will try to dive into the importance of knowing some cultural peculiarities of your remote colleagues in order to make the contacts bring you what you are expecting: just to hear and just to be heard! Being Product people it is of high importance for us to be on the same page with the teams we collaborate; to be sure the message we send is clear and transparent and vice versa – the issues the team has are clear and comprehensive for Product People.
