At large businesses, employees may be required to participate in a number of separate teams (often more than one simultaneously). This means collaborating with a diverse group of co-workers and managers, each of whom can impact the overall team dynamic.
Webinar – What Happens When Two Different Cultures Collide?

Challenges for Team Dynamics
Effective teamwork can involve particular challenges in a large company, where groups may be created to work on a specific project or task encompassing numerous sectors of the business. This means that the group may consist of employees from different departments or organizational units who may have had little or no previous interaction. These workers may have vastly different backgrounds, skills, and communication styles.
Employees who struggle to communicate and problem-solve productively with others in their team will find it difficult to accomplish their goals in an efficient way.
