Remove unconscious barriers to employee performance
Leading a team of people from different countries and cultures can be very interesting, fun and rewarding. But it does require that we develop new skills that recognize people have been raised with different expectations about performance in the workplace. This can lead to misunderstand, conflict and poor performance. But there are tools and techniques you can use to avoid this.
In this course, you will learn:
- How culture shapes our unconscious beliefs, values and expectations of others
- What unconscious beliefs you have (we all have them!) that influences your expectations of others
- How to clearly communicate expectations to employees
- Tools and processes you can use to support your teams
As with all of my courses, I include a lot of practical exercises and case studies to apply your skills. Additionally, this course includes reflective exercises to help you become aware of your own unconscious expectations and how they influence your leadership. You will then learn tools and techniques to overcome these challenges.
This course includes a copy of my ebook "How to manage culturally diverse work teams". This includes additional exercises, tools, templates and guidance for you to develop your learning plan to keep building your skills in Cross-Cultural Leadership.
How we ensure your success
The curriculum has been carefully designed by an experienced mentor. We know that you need more than theory and best practices. So your instructor includes lots of examples based on real situations. You will get lots of practical tools and tips, and exercises for you to try them out.
Engaging, multi-media content
Our approach to learning combines knowledge (through video based lectures), as well as exercises where you will apply tools and techniques through case studies. The application is necessary to truly develop skills that you can apply in the workplace.
At the end of each section, you will have a quiz such that you can evaluated how well you met the learning objectives for that section.
You can then go back and review any areas as needed (or contact your instructor with questions!). And at the end of the course, there is a detailed self assessment to determine how well you met the overall learning objectives of the course. You have unlimited access to the course, so can go back at any time to review and strengthen areas.
