No respect of other members’ culture and beliefs

When it comes to communication you have to be precise on what
you are saying, and choose you word carefully or you risk people
misquoting you or being misinterpreted
team members must exhibit a trait of trust and openness while at the
same time willing to share both material and intellectual resources
especially with the junior team members

Multiculturalism creates cross pollination of cultural ideologies which
team members can use in performing their tasks
You get to learn a lot about different cultures and how people do
things, and also it opens up your mind to diverse opinions based on
the different cultures in a team

We have to work for 8 hrs a day on a project but some members
start and finish work at different time. When a person start at
0600hrs, he/she will leave at 1400hrs, while others has 2 or 3 hrs to
work. This creates conflict
Some nationalities have issues with punctuality
White people are individualist and balcks are helpful
Team members tends to feel closer related and trust people sharing
the same culture with them
Trust is usually low at the start of the project
Trust is sometime a problem

It is common in my team that when a person is trying to express an
point threw one or two vernacular words, which sometimes distort
the meaning of the point to other team members of different national
This conflict can only the detected late in the project, sometimes
when errors had occurred or when schedule missed
I use corporate culture to handle cultural differences
Before a person start working, I carry an induction where I set the
ground rules of what is expected of the team members, in terms of
delivery, behaviour and attitude
All members of the team are to be treated the same under the
guidance of our Human Resources policies and procedure. This will
ensure fairness and avoids prejudice
Team members are a family
Project Managers need to create team chemistry
