Essentials: ‘Improve performance in international setting’
Turn cultural diversity into an asset
Cultural diversity can be a major challenge. Whether working globally or locally, most organizations span more than one cultural context. Successful management of diversity has become a strategic competence. A competence that helps you lead, teach, coach and manage your teams and relationships effectively – and successfully. This master class takes you from reflecting on your own values and assumptions to understanding those of others. It will make you understand how to turn cultural diversity into an asset.
