TOPIC: Globalization brings about significant international competitive advantages. And a diverse workforce can yield a significant competitive edge by employing new ideas and communication skills. It can also bring about a diversity of thought that results in better business practices and relationships.

But what if your global organization shows signs of cultural dysfunction? Would you spot them?

What if you, as the Global Talent Leader--

  • Are seeing intercultural insensitivity in the communications going across your desk and by (God forbid!) in internal emails.
  • See a video of one of the key leaders that speak negatively about certain cultures, races, sexes or even other international offices of your organization
  • Work with managers who are challenged with managing different types of employees of the above mentioned categories in a culturally sensitive and professional manner
  • Hear employees criticize and belittle those in other groups, or other countries and say that this is the source of the poor growth making internal competition worse than external competition

You know that it is affecting performance, but you are not sure what to do it about it.

Learner Objectives

At this event, we will:

1. Discuss what Organizational Culture is and Edgard Schein’s three levels of Organization Culture: Artifacts, Values, and Assumptions

3. Learn about PrimeFocus™ that was developed by Primeast’s own Clive Wilson
