Cross-cultural management is challenging. However, online leadership across cultures demands even more intercultural competence, as the actors involved neither share physical space nor everyday experiences. This chapter offers a new interdisciplinary perspective on global collaboration, which addresses the complexity in online cross-cultural leadership. The perspective is formed as a post-cultural prism comprising practice theory, positioning theory, and postcolonial theory. It is argued that this interdisciplinary approach is capable of filling the gap in the field of intercultural competence, as it offers tools for reflection on online interactions in everyday situations. The aim of this chapter is to contribute to a conceptualization in cross-cultural leadership and to introduce basic intercultural practices for practitioners.
