Change is a challenge in itself. And leading a multicultural team through change is even more of a challenge. Especially for the leader. So how to ensure success in such a situation?


If, as a leader, you want to effectively implement a change in international teams, before you start, it is worth paying attention to:


  • understanding the "reflexive" reaction of people to changes resulting from the specificity of the national culture in which they were brought up

  • understanding the culture of the organization in which you work and the resulting strong, unwritten rules regarding behavior in specific situations, especially in the event of a change

  • conflicts and synergies that result from national and cultural diversity in your organization


The complexity of combining cultures and nationalities, understanding leadership, and common values ​​are strongly conditioned by national characteristics. And we often forget about it on a daily basis.
