About the Event

The ideal level of conflict is probably the most misunderstood aspect of teamwork. ‘Storming’ is essential for testing ideas: teams that skip over the messy bit and assume quick agreement often find themselves stuck or divided later. But even those who acknowledge the importance of constructive conflict see it differently depending on their personality, cultural background and professional profile. Swedish pharmaceutical sales teams, Chinese automotive VPs and the leaders of an agri-business joint venture imagine healthy ‘storming’ differently.

How do dominant risk-takers, creative extroverts, service-minded and technical teams come to consensus? And what happens when individual members or sub-teams represent different cultural ‘storming’ styles? At this breakfast seminar, intercultural leadership consultant Gabor Holch presents four alternative cultures of ‘storming’ in teamwork, based on the ICF-accredited Global DISC assessment and coaching system, 20+ years of worldwide consulting experience and cases from Nordic Firms in Asia.
