In the current global business environment, leaders at all levels of the organization interact with peers, clients, subordinates and suppliers from a wide variety of countries. Some of these interactions take place domestically while others are clearly cross-border. In either case, understanding the cultural values that underlie behavior is critical to leadership success. This seminar is designed to develop a level of cross-cultural awareness that will enhance global leadership skills. This applies to not only leading multicultural teams (virtual and face-to-face) but also dealing with clients and suppliers from all over the world. Additionally, the seminar will be invaluable to those who will be in leadership positions as expatriates. The sessions will be primarily interactive utilizing small groups discussions, experiential exercises, cases and self-assessments.

Learning Objectives:

Identify tools for assessing cultural differences
Describe one’s own cultural profile and how it affects one’s perceptions of and behavior towards others
Identify the potential impact of cultural values on how people communicate
Use cultural values to understand and lead multicultural teams
Describe unique challenges of leading multicultural virtual teams
Recognize the characteristics that contribute to success as an expatriate leader
Utilize a self-assessment tool to identify leadership skills related to expatriate success

Total Seminar Hours: 9
