Leading teams beyond borders
Different countries, different manners, different leadership: How to understand yourself and others better when leading internationally. How to succeed across cultures.
In times of global organizations and international workforces, gaining intercultural competencies will become a crucial requirement to succeed professionally. Leaders and project managers mingle with customers, partners and employees who expect fundamentally different outcomes from negotiations, cooperation and leadership behavior, team processes and human resource management. Being aware of these differences and handling them creatively often determines the success or failure of foreign operations. Through applied exercises, this training helps participants build awareness of their own cultural imprinting. By means of many international case studies the group reflects on how to collaborate with people from other cultures.
