Leading Across Cultures

Course Description

Address the leadership skills and competencies that are requisite for leading across cultures in a global business environment.

Learn from frameworks and practices how to leverage your business experiences for greater influence and effectiveness. Develop recognition and understanding of the biases and implicit assumptions about other cultures (ethnic, racial, national, gender, generational, etc.) that often erode value for organizations in business environments and undermine leadership effectiveness.

Learn how implicit bias plays a key role in organizations and many decision-making processes driven by leaders, and how the development of CQ capabilities is critical for limiting implicit bias and its negative impact across organizations.

  • Module 1: Cultural Intelligence (CQ) Framework
