The WorldWork Intern Diaries – Part 1

Screen Shot 2015-11-17 at 12.00.26Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.” – Albert Einstein.

At WorldWork we could not agree more which is one of the reasons why our tagline is “Learning for Global Success”, we very firmly believe that learning should be a vital, continuous process and the only means to successful growth and development both on an individual and organizational level. 

In the promotion of this ethos we therefore regularly run internship programmes and welcome students from different parts of the world. 

In October Sarah Braus, from the University of Passau, joined the WorldWork team. Over the following weeks she will share her experiences and learnings in the first of the series known as the WorldWork Intern diaries…

ITTI: Helping to manage challenges across cultures…

TCO International, one of WorldWork’s associated training companies, has successfully used the International Team Trust Indicator (ITTI) numerous times with client teams. In a recently book published by McGraw Hill called Managing Challenges across Cultures: a multicultural project team toolbox, David Trickey, TCO International senior partner, as co-author has included a case study of how ITTI was used within their client Comau, a world leader in advanced production systems. The book includes a ‘ready to use’ toolbox  for project managers and facilitators of global project teams in dealing systematically with the multi-cultural challenges they face: how to create and develop trust, build a strong sense of common purpose and team identity, manage mixed loyalties and priorities, communicate intentions clearly and build commitment to key decisions. These tools and approaches are practical, deal with all phases of the project life-cycle and can be usedScreen Shot 2015-11-26 at 14.09.33 to explore and integrate the differing expectations of how to work in a culturally diverse team.
