#8: Cross-Cultural Communication in Engineering Teams - Felipe Furlan da Silva

Have you ever thought a person doesn't understand what you say? Did you ever get feedback that you disagreed with what they were talking about? Working with a team is a big challenge. Cultural differences affect relationships and team performance. Even people coming from similar cultures struggle a lot. This week, we talked about how we can approach people coming from different cultures and have healthy relationships.  

We answered questions such as: 

  • How do miscommunications happen? 

  • How to give negative feedback? 

  • Why are some people always late for the meeting? 

  • How can we disagree with someone without breaking their heart? 

and many more!  

My guest was Felipe Furlan da Silva. He is an Engineering Manager at Jimdo. He has been working in IT since 2004 and is involved in almost every part of the software development lifecycle, from operational to tactical and strategic.
