Team Building for Multicultural Teams

You have a very special gift in training and advising people, and I am glad I have had the opportunity to experience it. Product Marketing Engineer, TriQuint Semiconductor

Today’s workplace is changing rapidly. Employees must deal with a fast-paced, 24/7 virtual workplace and an increased workload due to cuts in staffing and budgets. In addition, the workplace is becoming far more diverse, with minorities contributing to 90% of U.S. population growth since 2000.

Are you and your staff well equipped to handle working across these differences? Are your teams working synergistically, or are they uncomfortable with or intimidated by the differences in communications and conflict management styles?

Contact us today to learn about our team-building sessions, which are designed to help you build better, more productive working relationships. Spend a few hours with us, and walk away with increased self-awareness and a much more cohesive team.

Keynote, Guest or Conference Speeches

I felt that Lillian Tsai was the best of all the guest speakers. She had an excellent ability to bring international relations into relevant business situations that many of us can relate to based on our travel overseas. … As Lillian says, ’it is important to GIVE face as well as save face” with many of these cultures.’ Participant, Oregon Executive MBA program

Thank you so very much for your excellent presentation at Rotary yesterday. I have heard since then from some members that they thought it was very interesting and relevant. Even a few on the committee who were skeptical said they thought it was excellent. Program Chair, Rotary Club of Portland

Ms. Tsai has given speeches at dozens of meetings, workshops, conferences and venues across North America, Europe and Asia.

Contact us today if you want a refreshingly authentic, entertaining and informative speaker who combines real-world experience with a strong dose of humor.
