This is an intense PRACTICAL international leadership training workshop. It focused on people skills to manage diverse personalities and cultures across different countries or regions. (Content is tailored to your specific intercultural leadership situation.)

Leaders learn to recognize their own personality and cultural values and styles, and those of others. We start by exploring business cases where culture differences caused huge problems, and where they’re leveraged for fantastic successes. Using action-oriented exercises and human graphs, attendees identify their personality and cultural values, while getting to know the values of others. Leaders use our Cultural Insight Framework to link cultural business values to indicators, and business practices. Throughout the workshop, they apply these tools to business situations, like managing other regions and international teams. This course digs into specific national business culture issues that routinely cause problems and offer solutions.

This workshop brings together international and cultural leadership research, case studies, and the trainer’s 20+ years of international management and growth experience in 50+ countries. It provides a critical framework for diagnosing new business situations and cultures, and best practices for managing people and businesses. Workshop attendees emerge with tools to recognize, connect, and benefit from international culture in business.

This course is available in English.
