CCIFM & Malaysian Dutch Business Council (MDBC) organized a workshop on Reskilling Team Management & Efficiency with our member, Marie Tseng of Cultural Impact.

The participants we given effective, practical tools on adapting faster to multicultural teams, they also learned on how to build a cohesive, efficient, and effective multicultural team.
At the end of the workshop participants were able to:

• use a proven competence-based framework: Intercultural Readiness, to build intercultural competences
• decipher different cultural expectations and adapt their behaviors accordingly
• optimize their communication in a Malaysian context
