Leading international teams

By: Peter Hamill, Alex Swarbrick and Sharon Varney

In these tough economic times, with much reduced or non-existent travel budgets, there is a greater degree of virtual working in international teams. This presents greater challenges than ever for leaders of those teams. Building on previous Roffey Park research, Managing teams across cultures, and What makes an excellent virtual manager?, which explores the foundational skills that managers need in each of these contexts, we set out to investigate what good leadership looks like in international teams – where those cross-cultural and virtual elements co-exist.
