  Discovery Event October 2-3 2008
Topic Cultural Diversity
Date October 2-3 2008

Today’s international executives work with people from multiple cultures at the same time – in teams, in developing and executing strategies, working with global suppliers and customers, and more. Cultural diversity is most often seen as a barrier, but our research shows that cultural diversity can be an opportunity. Under the right leadership and in the right climate, it can be used to create sustainable high performance. Whether you are a leader working in a multicultural environment who wants to use the resources you have, or someone who supports these leaders, this Discovery Event is for you.


  • The nature of richness in cultural diversity
  • How teams and leaders can tap this richness and turn it into performance
  • What organizational climate best supports getting synergy from cultural diversity 
  • Best practices for developing the right leadership skills and creating the right climate

The event takes place at IMD in Lausanne (Switzerland)
