Your Leadership Brand in a Foreign Land

When a move into the international marketplace is imminent, it is critical to understand that how an individual is perceived in their home country may translate poorly in a foreign assignment.

Participants will be exposed to specific concepts designed to heighten their cultural awareness and sensitivity in the global marketplace.  This workshop is a must for today’s global business person seeking to improve communications and build solid relationships with colleagues from other cultures.

Avoiding Cross-Cultural Misfires

In most companies today, executives and key employees are exposed to the international marketplace with all its cultural diversity. This can be a challenge for individuals who previously have operated primarily in non-diverse environments. Most other countries have cultural, religious and traditional practices that will be outside of one’s own previous experience or understanding. This creates opportunities for communication and behavioral misfires that can cause business to break down or a new leader to not integrate easily into their new environment.

Misfires can happen anytime and anywhere, with some individuals involved having little to no awareness. Participants will come away from this presentation with a heightened awareness of cross-cultural differences, learning how to take a focused and appropriate approach to situations they face in culturally diverse environments. This workshop is a must for anyone seeking to improve communications and build solid relationships with colleagues from other cultures.

Characteristics of Effective Global Leaders

To properly recruit leaders for their global assignments, it’s critical for today’s organizations to recognize the key characteristics which make an individual the right choice for a global assignment. This is true whether the assignment is based at home or abroad. An individual who is highly effective within their own culture and environment can fail miserably in a global assignment for which they are not suited or properly prepared. During our informative presentation, we drill deeply into analyzing the key characteristics of truly effective global leaders and communicators. Audience members come away prepared to make wiser career and global staffing decisions, whether for themselves or others.

It’s no secret that the cost can be extremely high for an organization to send a staff member abroad, especially when this involves expatriating and relocating a top leader. Yet the cost of sending the wrong person is multiplied tenfold in terms of lost business opportunity or failure to execute properly. And for those global leaders who still reside in their home country but communicate with culturally diverse colleagues, having the right skill set to manage today’s globally diverse initiatives and constituencies is no longer a luxury – it’s a pre-requisite for effective leadership.
