The author presents cross-culture collaboration as a ministry problem for Encompass Partnerships, 3851–54th Avenue NE, Calgary, Alberta T3J3W5, Canada. He created a Multiculture Team Collaborating program (MTC) to improve the quality of working together. It is a seven-month program that consisted of four hours of classroom training and discussion and small, multicultural groups learning and practicing practical ways of planning and executing a project of the group’s choice. He recruited fifteen participants. He used the MTC Survey consisted of sixteen questions (Appendix A). The questions were divided into three main elements to evaluate the MTC program impacting the participants’ quality of cross-cultural collaboration: Collaboration — Questions 1–7; Motivation — Questions 8–12; and Behavior — Questions 13–16. The values assigned to the sixteen questions ascertained the pre-test and post-test results range from Poor = 1, Fair = 2, Neutral = 3, Good = 4 and Very good = 5. Each participant could score a minimum of sixteen points and up to a maximum of eighty points on the MTC Survey instrument to measure three hypotheses. The author discovered that cross-cultural collaboration participants at Encompass Partnerships needed a strategy to gain knowledge and understanding of MTC as well as to determine its practicality. They also required a coaching strategy that would motivate people to work collaboratively.
