About the Webinar
Are you managing a team of individuals from different countries or with different cultural backgrounds? While research shows that diversity on a team is highly beneficial to creativity, effectiveness, and bringing out the best in each team member, if you aren't comfortable working with and managing the various approaches, it can feel like you're working in a foreign land yourself.
Cultural nuances around directness, formality, assertiveness, body language, and the like can lead to false assumptions about motivation and engagement, often resulting in decisions that further motivation and engagement, often resulting in decisions that further alienate. Performance can suffer, both individually and as a team.
In this interactive session you'll:
- Gain insight into different cultural norms and values in business.
- Develop confidence working with and leading folks from different cultures.
- Understand how to assess, appreciate, and leverage cultural differences.
- Support your team members and their interactions with less struggle.
