Organisations operate in a global market and being able to operate effectively from anywhere in the world is now a given. Leading across global and cross-cultural teams requires a different set of leadership skills much more than the traditional skills of setting direction, inspiring others and delivering operational success.
Leading across Cultures is a reflective and highly interactive programme that will explore the different dimensions of cultural differences and challenge leaders to flex their leadership approaches to build trust and collaboration as leaders of intercultural teams.
Why this programme now?
As the nature of business continues to shift towards global and interconnected virtual environments, organisations need to have managers and leaders with cultural competence to achieve success when working across cultures.
You will leave with:
An awareness of how to bridge cultural gaps and turn differences into positive action
An understanding of how to transform your team so they have the confidence and capability to succeed
An enhanced perspective on understanding the challenges of leading across cultures
Approaches to create an inclusive, thriving organisation where people bring their best selves to work
Who is this programme for?
- Managers who lead cross-cultural teams.
- Organisational leaders who lead international functions.
- Anyone on, or about to embark on, an international assignment.
