Does your company have a global presence? Are you a member of LinkedIn, Plaxo or Xing?

If so, you are part of the fast growing international business community.

Organizations that succeed in this ever changing business environment are those that develop people who can lead and implement organizational strategies across borders, cultures, and a variety of logistical and legal complexities—often in several nations at the same time.

That’s why it is vitally important that you enrich your global perspective on an ongoing basis if you wish to keep current and advance your career.

In this highly interactive Webcast we will discuss key areas of global business and leadership with you and help you focus on your own competencies in this area, revealing key skills needed to develop a global mindset.

What You Will Learn

With the added stresses of differing cultures, languages, and time zones—successful leadership within a global framework requires a number of specific considerations. In this Webcast we explore a number of key issues with you and check in with you on your needs, including:
  • The importance of understanding customer needs in other parts of the world (both internal and external)
  • Ways that culture impacts people in the workplace and the symptoms of cross-cultural challenges
  • What does leadership mean in different parts of the world?
  • How to best communicate with people in different time zones and locations
  • Managing hierarchy and reporting relationships across cultures
  • Strategies for keeping management teams focused and aligned to leverage cultural differences into a distinctive business advantage
  • How to stay on top of constantly changing local resources and political/economic conditions
  • Navigating the complexities of potential global/local corporate tensions
  • Establishing trust and creating a good reputation with international/culturally different organizations

We will address your questions throughout the session!
