Management Skills for International Business
Enhance your cross-cultural management skills
The qualities that make a manager successful in one culture may be the very reason for failure when leading across cultures. And today, most organisations operate internationally. Even executives based in their home country find themselves managing teams, suppliers, partners or customers in others. To add to the challenge, twenty-first century teams are increasingly likely to be multicultural. Traditional management training is no longer sufficient to develop the skills that business leaders require.
Fortunately, INSEAD’s new programme, Management Skills for International Business, is there to help. Over five learning-packed days it provides the cross-cultural leadership competence that has become essential for businesses and managers to succeed in today’s global business landscape.
Building on INSEAD’s distinctively international research reputation and teaching expertise, Management Skills for International Business develops an understanding of cultural differences, the skills to manage internationally, and the knowledge to navigate the complexities of international organisations.
- Improve your communication across different cultures
- Build the confidence to influence clients, suppliers and colleagues from a variety of countries
- Benchmark your individual management style against preferences from around the world – and learn to adapt accordingly
- Learn how to lead across international matrix systems and other organisational structures
