Strengthening your leadership competency in a multi-cultural setting.
You will learn how to motivate a multi-national team to high performance and gain insight into dealing with the critical issues in your working environment. As a leader of an international team, office or organization, you are responsible for balancing your organization’s national and international needs.

These differences can cause major clashes as leadership, management, decision-making and trust have potentially very different meanings in the different cultures represented in a team.
