Why should we focus on Cross Cultural Leadership Training?
In short, it will give managers the specialized team leader skills they need to effectively manage a more diverse workforce. And it will your organization to leverage the advantages of diversity for recruitment, innovation and new markets.
As I’ve talked about in my previous article on the Advantage of Cross Cultural Leadership
- First, we need to recognize that diversity is increasing here in Canada, and will continue to do so.
- We also know that there are some advantages of a diverse workforce, such as bringing in new perspectives and ideas.
- But without a new approach to managing a diverse workforce, there is the potential for misunderstanding and conflict.
Todays’ organizations need to develop specialized leadership skills that recognize our differences. And those differences go beyond our outside appearances and customs. We need to understand the deeper influences of cultural conditioning – including our own! And we need to adapt “traditional” leadership approaches to engage with diverse employees, customers, partners and communities. This knowledge, along with practical tools and techniques, will enable supervisors, managers and leaders to reduce misunderstanding and conflict.

She also brings her considerable experience in working with diverse teams, and her passion for teaching.
