Abstract: This article investigates manager‘s intercultural competence problems in the organizations of Lithuania; analyzes interpersonal communication influence to intercultural competence and career development. With the accession of many Eastern European states, the European Union is becoming even more culturally diverse than it was already. In such a context, organisations which operate across European borders have to “reconcile … the tension between the pressures of globalisation and the distinct approaches to management that … exist across different European countries”(Keating and Martin, 2004, xxiii) At an individual level, executives in European companies need to acquire and develop new interpersonal and intercultural skills to work and provide leadership in multicultural project teams. However, the experience of many businesses and other organisations bears witness to the problems related to intercultural communication. The ability to understand, manage and draw benefits from cultural diversity has therefore become an essential asset for organisations operating in multicultural Europe, and for those wishing to extend their business activities in the East-West context of the enlarged European Union. However, despite the urgent need for such competence, HE institutions have tended to focus on theory rather than on developing competences that can be applied in employment
