About this Session
This session is designed to raise awareness of cultural similarities and differences around the world and how they influence working across cultural boundaries and in global teams. You will be exposed to the most evidence-based approach for understanding cultural values, and how such values influence work-related beliefs and attitudes.
Throughout the session, special attention is paid to how to increase the effectiveness of globally diverse teams. Additional topics covered include understanding your own cultural intelligence (CQ) and how to improve on the various dimensions within CQ. You will also learn about the leadership behaviors that are universally culturally endorsed and rejected, and those that are dependent on cultural differences.
