Leading International Teams Successfully

How to create and lead winning teams

Team leaders often struggle with the complexity and demands of leading teams. In an international context, they are additionally confronted with unfamiliar cultural behaviour that they do not understand or even recognise. This seminar is aimed at providing you with the peace of mind and confidence to deal with these challenges. You are provided with a framework for leading teams effectively and how to use and adapt this framework for dealing with team members from different cultures. This helps to promote understanding within the team and to avoid conflicts - which in turn leads to better team performance.
