You are probably good at assessing and acting on your financial risks, strategic risks, market risks, etc. But how good are you at assessing and acting on the cultural risks?
What if your corporate culture is a liability for the ability to hire the right people in the future? What if you have undiscovered cultural strengths? Most organisations actually do have undiscovered strengths. How well-aligned is your corporate culture with your strategy?
These are some of the questions we will help you find answers to during this 1- or 2-day workshop. At the end of the workshop, you will have a clear picture of your cultural strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.

In this course module, we will climb further up the ladder from where we reached with Introduction to Cultural Intelligence.

This course module focuses on helping you to determine your cross-cultural strengths and weaknesses as a leader.

Managing a daily operation can be challenging. Leading your team through major changes requires a whole new skill set. It is as far from business as usual as you can get.

All that at the same time as you have to complete an unfamiliar, risky mission.
This course module addresses the special cross-cultural challenges project managers of global projects are facing. Project managers typically only have a short-term relationship with their teams with the one goal to complete a project. Depending on our cultural preferences we do however have very different interpretations of what is important. For some finishing on time is the most important and for other it is the quality of the delivery. Most project managers will claim they are aiming at delivering the agreed quality within the timeframe. The reality is we have to compromise and reschedule.
Facilitating cultural change in the healthcare industry can be challenging because we on one side have the experienced doctors who promote the best practices we are comfortable with and on the other side we have the younger doctors who promote all the new opportunities the new technology gives us. This workshop is about how we can reconcile this dilemma so both the older and younger doctors and the patients benefit from the diversity.

Innovation is crucial for the competitiveness of your company. Unfortunately, most innovation projects don’t deliver the expected outcome.
Why do Innovation projects fail?
In short, because they are usually focused on a narrow part of the value chain. In order for innovation projects to really become successful, you have to innovate across the value chain, across corporate subcultures and sometimes with your customers and suppliers.
This 1-day course enables your organisation to work better together across profession cultures, national cultures, age-group cultures, company cultures etc. You learn to learn from people who have other perspectives than you. This way you all grow.
