What is your experience best example about considering the cultural differences through team building process?

I remember one example that some people used to eat by hands, which other people think that it is so weird, and they in turn do some thing (can't remember what it is) that others think that it is weird as well.

In one of my kick-off meetings I asked the team members to get split up into pairs. Each pair was requested to do an interview, like A interviews B and B interviews A with the intention to have an introduction round where A introduces B and B introduces A to the whole group. This ignited a good start that the team became aware about cultural differences.
Needless to say, that cultural difference topic is an ongoing project topic you need to be aware, especially in communication.

That's a good idea and an excellent approach Peter. Nice to know.
