How to Increase Team Mindfulness | HR

How to Increase Team Mindfulness | HR | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

Are you a member of a virtual team? Many people are. To find out, consider this definition adapted  from Wikipedia and see if you qualify:

~ A virtual team is one that is not located in any one physical space. Rather, several workplaces are technologically connected (via telephones, email, and internet) without regard to time zones or geographic boundaries. People are thus able to interact and work with one another regardless of where they are located in the world. A virtual workplace decreases unnecessary costs (such as travel) by integrating technology, people, and projects.

Does that sound like you and your workplace?

Anne Egros's curator insight, June 15, 5:03 AM

A High-context culture can be defined as “a culture that emphasizes the context of the situation in which communication occurs”.


A low-context culture can be defined as “a culture that emphasizes the (verbal) content of messages while paying less attention to the context of the situation in which communication occurs”.

Below are some examples of high- and low-context cultures:
