"How can I manage my increasingly diverse group of employees?"
"At team meetings all we do is argue."
"Language barriers make our meetings and trainings sessions a challenge."
"We've got some difficult personalities here; everyone's given up."
"We constantly have small misunderstandings with customers and employees who are not native speakers of English."

Every organization has tensions and differences. The challenge is working with these conflicts in ways that minimize unfairness, politics, and bitter feelings, and that maximize the organization's ability to make timely, wise choices and follow through on them.
JB Intercultural Consulting, publisher of this Culture At Work website, offers both consulting and training services to help organizations negotiate differences.
Much of our work involves teaching or training. Please note that we do in-house training, but do not sponsor public workshops. Interested in attending a mediation training in the Philadelphia area? Please email us, and we will let you know when our local colleagues are offering training courses.
