Leading across Cultures
Globalization is a reality. Once, only explorers and world travelers needed to be culturally knowledgeable, but now most of us work with people from different cultural backgrounds. Our variations in attitudes, beliefs, and communication styles present daily challenges for business leaders charged with managing across cultures. Managing diversity is now a necessary skill. In this course, you'll learn about leading diversity. You'll explore the dynamic nature of cultural intelligence (CQ) and how to grow it and use it to bridge cultural differences. You'll also discover techniques for motivating, influencing, and managing across cultures, and adapting your own leadership style. Finally, you'll learn about managing conflict across cultures by identifying and navigating cultural barriers and minefields.
