  • Leading diverse, cross-cultural teams

Good leaders, efficient teams and successful organisations do not run on profit-loss sheets, project-management and finances alone. It takes people, mental intelligence, emotional intelligence and cultural intelligence.

This workshop is a team and leadership agility course and focuses on cultural intelligence. Course participants will get a taste of what it means to communicate, lead and negotiate well in a cross-cultural setting. The workshop will also have clear benefits to those whose working environments that are becoming more diverse – less uniform.

The workshop will help participants think outside of their own box, challenging them to create more win-wins. It offers an introduction to a more in-depth training course and is highly-interactive.

Topics will include:

• Confronted with another culture

• Team dynamics and leadership in cross-cultural settings

• Cross-cultural communication and negotiation

• Change and crisis communication across cultures
