Joseph J. Distefano and Martha L. Maznevski’s research in “Creating Value with Diverse Teams in Global Management” indicates that multicultural teams perform better when the cultural differences are recognized as assets in the organization and when leaders acknowledge and support cultural differences (2000). The better your staff is able to bridge across differences, the better they will work together and your organization will enjoy greater successes. And IU for organizations will guid you every step of the way.
