The Master Class: Leadership across cultures
Courses and Purposes
There is a long on-going debate on whether: Leaders are born OR leaders are made, Leadership is situational OR some people are leaders whatever the situation, Leadership is culturally sensitive OR leadership goes across cultures, Leadership is ONLY at the top of the organization OR leadership is found THROUGHOUT the organization.
This course aims to explore all sides of the leadership literature, yet we believe that the statements in BOLD correspond to what we observe in global leadership at the moment. Participants will become familiar with the main topics and points of view on leadership then decide which are closest to their particular experience and finally be given a framework to think about their global leadership development path. This course aims also to bring together Leadership and the Multicultural dimension in very practical, typical business situations.
