Webinar 2: Cross-Cultural Competence


Cross-Cultural Competence means understanding national, regional, ethnic, organizational, industry, professional, gender and age cultures, and having the  ability to interact, lead and manage effectively in these diverse cultural environments. Corporate global citizens expect and are attuned to diversity, anticipate its challenges and work with the opportunities it brings. They are self-aware about their own values and the business practices & behaviors that seem "normal" to them. They are well informed about the values, practices & behaviors considered "normal" by people from other cultural backgrounds and environments. They are skilled at identifying, bridging and going beyond culture clash to working effectively with cultural differences.

ABOUT THE CORPORATE GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP WEBINAR SERIES

Most large enterprises today are becoming globalized. They need leadership that can harness the creativity and innovation of multicultural and geographically distributed teams for better productivity and significant improvements to the bottom line.

Our network partner Marshall Goldsmith, in his book Global Leadership: The next Generation, has described the five characteristics of global leaders that resulted from researching 120 organizations. We call these leaders Corporate Global Citizens. The five competencies and subject of our Webinar Series are as follows:

Webinar 1. Global Mindset means that corporate global citizens look at the world from every possible angle, intuitively synchronizing themselves to the prevailing culture, social trends, levels of technology, and the dynamics of the local political-economic realities. In effect, they become world citizens, because they are never perceived as foreign wherever they might be (Ed Cohen). Recorded Webinar available to all registered participants.

Webinar 2. Cross-Cultural Competence means understanding national, regional, ethnic, industry, organizational, professional, gender and age cultures, and having the ability to interact, lead and manage effectively in these cultural environments (Karine Schomer). Recorded Webinar will be available to all registered participants.

Coming Shortly - Webinar 3. Technology Savvy means enthusiasm in understanding technology advances and its strategic use for the organization. The corporate global citizen views technology as an integral part of life – not believing that is  something important for staff and operations but not for me (M. Goldsmith).

Coming Shortly - Webinar 4. Partnering Skills is the ability to negotiate complex alliances and manage complex networks of relationships while simultaneously building positive, long term, win-win relationships (M. Goldsmith).

Coming Shortly - Webinar 5. Collaborative Leadership is about getting the right people together in the right way: convening is a more critical skill than commanding (Peter Block).
