Michael Tighe

My sole professional interest: virtual intercultural teamwork and leadership. In my work I support international virtual teams in building cross-cultural trust, creating a positive interactive context and really coming together despite physical distance.

I am in my element interacting with people in the cross-cultural virtual space. My natural curiosity about leaders from other cultures seems to help these leaders open up and share their insights with me and be open to perspectives I might offer. I perform as a kind of conduit; I observe, probe, filter and translate. Through my work I am always learning; things are always unpredictable, and I am fortunate enough to frequently experience a feeling of flow and significance in the work I do.
