WORKSHOP Cross-Cultural Management
We leave in a global world, we discuss everyday in our work with people from many cultures, that have different background, beliefs, awarness, work habits, communication habbits.
The way we decide, lead, manage our time, give our trust .. differs from countries. Cultural difference is a invisible bias who has a impact when we work with other naitioanlities ( Manager, Head Office, Customers ).
Cross cultural management course , is as fascinating way of growing in awarness about how we could be more efficient in this multi-cultural new business world.
The course is very concrete and actionable, still with a academic background (Insead).
We have to compromise. We have to either deliver an 80% solution on time or give up delivering on time. The cross-cultural management challenge is that we have different preferences for what is important.
Our behaviours are linked with our cultural and personal values, and with our underlying standards and norms. As we have different norms and values because of differences in cultures leads to different behaviors. According to ourselves we always behave properly because our behavior always reflects our own values – even when we do something cruel. Cultural clashes happen when other people’s behavior compromises our own values. It happens all the time. You may have a value about giving up your seat on the bus to an elderly man, while others do not share that value. When an elderly person comes into the bus and no one gives him a seat you will feel offended – because your values are compromised.
