LEADERSHIP ACROSS CULTURES

LEADING & MANAGING
ACROSS CULTURES

At VOOU, we are driven by our ability to help enable others to understand and respect cultural differences in today's global work environment, and to work more effectively within them to increase performance.

The World Today

Today, most leaders are engaging in cross-cultural interactions, having to navigate the cultural complexities of a multicultural environment (whether they know it or not).

As business becomes ever more globalized, leaders will increasingly find themselves working in a multi-cultural environment. To conduct business effectively, you need to be increasingly aware of cultural differences and to adjust the way you behave and communicate.

 

To their chagrin, leaders who possess the interpersonal skills and strong ability to relate to people within their own culture are often surprized to find them largely ineffective in other cultures. But we at VOOU are here to help!

At VOOU, we work with your executive leaders and managers to build cross-cultural competency and effectiveness to develop a more innovative, adaptable corporate culture.

Managing People Across Cultures

In today's global environment, leaders need to be able to operate effectively in a complex, multinational environment.

 

This workshop helps your team to build the capabilities to lead across national and international boundaries. After assessing you own personal approach to leading teams, it provides you with a comprehensive framework as well as real life stories and anecdots to enable you to build the understanding and capabilities you need to lead across national and international boundaries. You will learn to bridge cultural gaps,  understand the cultural miscues that impede communication and undermine relationships, transforming differences into advantages.

How To Become An Inclusive Leader

Change you mindset, change your behavior! Empower and equip your leadership to develop inclusive cultures where everyone feels valued and respected. 

 

Learn how highly inclusive global leaders use processes of social influence to interact effectively with individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds. Gain a deeper understanding of the benefits of diversity and explore a wealth of perspectives and practices to help reap those benefits. 

 

This workshop explores the signature traits of inclusive leadership (based on global research) including strengthening self-awareness, developing the necessary communication skills, and improving your ability to help others feel a strong sense of belonging. We cover the traditional and timely topics to improve leadership performance from listening, giving feedback, and collaboration, to privilege, implicit bias, microaggressions, and micro-affirmations.  

If you would like a consultant to work with you individually and/or with your team, please email us explaining your needs and your location and we will help you to meet your goals. Workshops can be run face-to-face or virtually and are adapted to your needs in terms of content and length.

DID YOU KNOW

Leadership matters in every culture, but leadership is culturally determined. Styles and approaches that work in one culture may be inappropriate and even counterproductive in another. Leaders in the U.S., for example, frequently motivate through incentives, but that approach is not always effective. The Dutch, for example, are likely to go out of their way to avoid being named employee of the month. Singling out individuals violates the Dutch sense of modesty.
