Workshops

Managing Across Cultures – William Maddux

In this workshop we will discuss how leaders in multinational organizations can be more aware of cultural differences so that they can deal more effectively with a culturally diverse workforce. We will do a case study that follows an experienced French executive as he struggles to adapt his leadership style to an American cultural context. While discussing this case we will explore topics related to different cultural dimensions and their impact on topics such as working in multicultural teams, motivating employees and providing effective feedback. We will also discuss when and why behavioral styles that are successful in one cultural environment may be disastrous in another. Finally, the subsequent parts of the case will help us explore strategies for overcoming cultural differences and for ultimately leveraging cultural differences as team and organizational assets.

Innovation Through Diversity: Overcoming Unconscious Bias – Karen Cvitkovich

We are told that diverse teams can outperform homogeneous teams but those of us that have worked in diverse teams know that it can also be challenging, frustrating and time consuming to make a diverse team work. How can you move from seeing the differences as an obstacle to overcome to seeing the differences as an asset to your organization that helps drive innovation and creativity? In this workshop, participants will explore the critical elements to creating organizations where diversity can truly be leveraged for innovation, while overcoming their own unconscious biases. We will review three elements critical to achieving this: 1) seeking out diversity, 2) creating inclusion, and 3) driving accountability. Utilizing small group discussions, case studies and practical, real life examples across multiple industries, you will receive concrete tools that will enable you to be a more successful global leader.
