Value Based Leadership Across Cultures

The ability to persuade and influence others to do what you want them to do is one of the most valuable skills you can bring to any situation. Whether you are applying for a job, asking for a pay rise or selling your expertise to different groups, you need to understand how you come across to others and relate at the interpersonal level. As the workplace becomes multicultural, you also have to enlarge your repertoire of communication skills by acquiring a set of styles and techniques which are contextually appropriate across cultures.

This workshop will focus on 4 types of influence strategies for leaders and team players to communicate their objectives and enrol others in a face-to-face or virtual situation. Participants will become aware of their own personal communication styles based on the Whole Brain profile, values and assumptions from their own cultural programming and apply them to effectively obtain the outcomes they want. They will be required to work with their own case studies and prepare to make presentations for feedback and refinements.
