Also hear from Anders Hemsøe, Competence Manager at Jotun, on why they value diversity and cultural difference and how it drives their business.

– During this seminar you will learn about:
– How your personal cultural preferences affect your workplace behaviour
– Which cultures will present your greatest workplace challenges
– How to lead with a global mindset
– How to transcend different work styles and create a highly collaborative environment
– How to build trust among team members on your global teams

All attendees will also receive a complimentary copy of the book, “Managing Across Cultures” by Charlene Solomon and Michael Schell, and access to the CultureWizard Mobile app.
