Challenges with Global Business and Local Culture

Sponsored by

Harvey Nash

Event Description

  • With increasing internationalization, the definition of leadership is growing increasingly more complex. The combination of local culture and global standards are ever present challenges for expat managers as well as local talent making its way up in international businesses.
  • Since the 1960’s, cross-cultural psychology has mapped the differences and similarities of national cultures. Along with the rise of modern leadership research, I/O psychologists are now able to define what behaviors and personality characteristics that make for successful leadership on a global level. There are actually some specific do’s and don’t’s that help you take on these challenges without losing track of long-term performance for your business.
  • So how do you lead an international team, facing cultural differences in the most efficient manner? Andreas Lokken is Director of Leadership Training at the Nordic branch of global recruitment company Harvey Nash. He will share some of the most efficient methods to align international staff with regards to your business’s performance.
