Managing Teams

Creating and Leading an International Team

You have successfully led teams in your country. How do you translate your company’s culture and values to another part of the world and help the employees there meet performance goals? Ubi & Orbi has the experience you need.

We know how to create and support effective teams. This ranges from setting one up in an individual market—such as Australia—to getting teams across a number of countries to cooperate with each other.

Proven Process

We can handle this in a turnkey manner or support you in the specific areas you need assistance:

  1. We understand your company by immersing ourselves in your mission and culture, products and services, customers, and the business plan for the new markets.
  2. We know the best ways to attract the caliber of employees you seek in this market: from executives to line staff to back-office support. Depending upon your needs, we can create the strategies for you to implement, or you may outsource the entire recruiting and salary negotiation process to us.
  3. Staff multicultural training and integration is our specialty. We work with your new employees—first by training, and then side-by-side—to help them cooperate with their colleagues. They become as proficient at communications with your other locations as they are in face-to-face situations in their own office.
  4. We assist you in managing your new employees. This begins with planning sessions before they are onboard, to ensuring you are fluent in what motivates—and de-motivates—people in this culture, to developing tactics for dealing with “sticky situations” that arise even in the best of offices.

You have a vision of what your new international office should achieve. We help you realize this, by hiring and training the right staff, providing an environment where they can live up to their potential, and giving you the tools to manage them.
