Driving Profitability and Cultural Competence
in Culturally Diverse Global Teams
Featuring Nicole DiRocco
Author, Speaker, Executive Coach
The impact on bottom-line financials is significant to companies unaware of how to operate as an enterprise in other parts of the world. As organizations expand, when investing in human capital abroad, cultural competency is a key factor for success for the individual and the larger, global team.
The importance of translating this understanding throughout the enterprise when managing remote teams and a culturally diverse workforce in global industries is an integral component to the success of companies. Risks of blindly applying one’s own cultural norms to culturally diverse workforces can negatively impact productivity, engagement and morale. We must commit ourselves to change our thinking and our doing for companies and individuals to succeed in a multi cultural society.
After attending this luncheon, you will:
- Understand the risk of cultural incompetence with employees, colleagues and suppliers relative to profitability, productivity, engagement and morale
- Identify where you are on the cultural competence continuum
- Understand the five elements of organizational cultural competence
- Learn the four steps to help you acquire cultural competence
Unleash the Power of Diversity
Featuring Debjani Biswas, author, international public speaker and change agent
Cultural diversity savvy is critical for business results in an increasingly global workforce. Debjani Biswas has developed groundbreaking new frameworks and a practical guide to increase effectiveness through multi-cultural competence. In his endorsement, Marshall Goldsmith, Thinkers50 Award Winner for Most Influential Leader Thinker in the World says:
“Diversity—it’s been a buzzword in corporate and political circles for about a decade. But most books on leadership and management simply don’t address its importance to an organization’s ability to survive and thrive. Enter Mukherjee-Biswas’ Unleash the Power of Diversity. After reading her thought-provoking book, few executives will be able to ignore the relevance of diversity to their company’s growth and success.”
The Five Judgments analyze the very real cost of stereotyping in the workplace based upon:
- Reputational Currency
- Physical Impact
- Auditory Cues
- Distinguishing Markers
- Work Product
A Diversity Foray provides a practical global toolkit of Do’s—*Ask * Adapt * Accept * Appreciate—and Don’ts, with real life scenarios from multiple continents.
