Understanding Diversity: Working Together in a Multicultural Environment

The world is so much more dispersed now and people from all walks of life are living and working everywhere. Gone are the days of working predominantly with people who grew up where you did. Are you able to navigate the multi-cultural workplace with little difficulty or do you sometimes struggle to understand why others think and act in ways different to you?
