Many leaders and managers often find themselves in an uncomfortable situation when managing or leading a multicultural Team. Many of these leaders have many years of experience in a monocultural environment. They know what to do and they know how people respond. In a multicultural setting or an unfamiliar cultural environment people respond in very different ways and the well-proven tools no longer work.
This high-level cross-cultural leadership module addresses the most common issues leaders and managers have when they have to lead, motivate and manage a culturally diverse team.
- Understand the diversity in the value systems.
- Why do people respond in different ways.
- How can I get up to speed as a leader of multicultural teams.
- Motivating Cultural diverse teams.
- My own develop plan as a leader.
