Event description

Description

"With today's increasingly global marketplace, knowing how to lead a cross-cultural team should be part of every manager's key skill set."

Technology, demographics, and culture are impacting the future of work.

Leaders always have to understand personality differences and manage how their employees interact with one another. But as workplaces become more diverse and multi-national, we now need the ability to decode cultural differences in order to work effectively as a team.

Increasingly companies are embracing remote working. Remote work options can benefit the bottom line, recruiting efforts, productivity rates, ability to be agile, and much more. But how we integrate remote working with the existing company culture to form a cohesive workforce?


From this informative session, you'll take away:

  • How to build, scale and manage distributed teams.

  • Learn to reconcile differences

  • Develop a team Identity and outline roles and responsibilities

  • Leverage cultural diversity for success

  • Avoid costly cross-cultural mistakes
