Leadership Skills in a Culturally-Diverse Environment

2 hours

Leadership can be challenging even when you’re dealing with people in the same country. Dealing with others in different countries – with different customs and communication styles – adds an exciting and challenging dimension to being a leader. The webinar starts with a leadership quiz to identify the Top Ten Leadership Traits (as defined by Harvard Business School). Then we move to an overview of how cultures view the tasks of leadership, with ways to soften dissonance and create alignment in the diverse workplace.
