Intercultural Leadership Workshop

I gave this afternoon a workshop on Intercultural Leadership for students at the American University in Dubai. This activity was part of their Leadership Training Program. Intercultural Leadership has become a must for our institutions and companies’ development and success. It’s time to think of leadership in terms of a combination IQ-EQ-InterCQ instead of alpha-male/female leadership. Multicultural contexts require a balance between one’s core cultural values, flexibility and the disentanglement of knots [misconceptions], as well as authentic listening, humility, empathy, knowledge of cultural intricacies and behaviors, getting out of one’s comfort zone, openness, respect, and the search for unity in diversity.
