Module 4 - Leading across cultures: creating cross-cultural connections
Module description
As the world becomes more connected through business activity and technological advancements, there is an increasing demand for competent global leaders who foster effective collaboration across multiple boundaries in international work environments. This course aims at equipping managers with global leadership competences to effectively lead global collaboration. The course will provide specific frameworks for understanding cultural differences and managing such differences in a variety of contexts, such as multicultural teams, international joint venture and M&A. Instead of focusing on detailed knowledge about specific cultures, the objectives of the course is to offer generic competences that will enable managers to navigate a wide range of global cultures. We will balance three aspects of competences in the training: knowing (i.e., cultural knowledge), doing (i.e., cultural bridging), and being (i.e., cultural identities).

Key components of the course:
  1. Effects and psychological mechanisms of culture
  2. Models of cultural dimensions and differences
  3. Tools for cultural mapping
  4. Communication challenges in global collaboration
  5. Leading multicultural teams
  6. Cultural integration in international M&A
  7. Bridging cultural differences
  8. Effects of cultural identities in cultural bridging
