Enhancing the effectiveness of your cross-cultural collaboration

Date: 6 March 2019, 15.00 GMT

One of the key priorities for CEOs of ICMIF members today is developing the organisational agility for their businesses to thrive in a complex world. They are increasingly calling for networks of teams to work together to apply their diverse skills to evolving challenges and for leaders to inspire their colleagues to drive the organisation to fulfil its mission. This webinar will look at the way people prefer to schedule, communicate, give feedback and make decisions, how these preferences arise from and define different cultures and the simple approaches. This webinar will be of particular interest to people starting to develop cultural transformation in their organisation or beginning to manage across cultural boundaries.
