Synergy Creation in Intercultural Teams

DJW Working Group Meeting "Intercultural Management"

DJW members Dr. Rolf Schlunze and Silvia Lawrence would like to invite you to the open meeting of DJW Working Group Intercultural Management. 

The DJW Working Group Intercultural Management discusses DJW members’ cultural approaches, by offering different subjects, relating to e.g. trust, empathy, synergy, during our monthly meetings, conducted in the Workspace Intercultural within the DJW Networking Hub. 

All our meetings start with a kick-off presentation on various subjects, followed by an open question-guided discussion. The meetings usually last one hour. Our idea is to provide an extended opportunity for exchange this time. During the past few months, we discussed trust building in general in German-Japanese teams and also toughness and humanity or empathy. Starting from September, our discussions focus on the creation of cultural synergy. Aligned with the wider agenda and interest of our fellow DJW members, we wish to promote competent cultural exchanges. 

We like to encourage people to succeed with trust building, cultural synergy creation and innovative ideas throughout intercultural exchange and therefore, we would like to open up to a wider audience. Observing generational and behavioral changes during the covid-19 crisis, we aim to build bridges between young enthusiastic or culturally experienced people beyond borders.  Therefore, we promote the exchange of experiences and helping to create awareness of recent challenges in intercultural workplaces.

After reviewing our previous talks briefly together with interested members, we would like to invite additional ideas from the meeting participants, forming a unique DJW team culture. 


You can join the meeting by clicking the link on Workspace Intercultural in our Networking Hub or sign up for this event above so that you will receive the link to enter via e-mail.

Participation is free of charge for DJW members. Non-members of DJW may attend up to two working group meetings free of charge. If you then would like to join further meetings, we invite you to explore the benefits of a DJW membership and join us as a member.
