Building and leading globally diverse teams

As the world becomes more connected—yet more divided—it is ever more critical for leaders to create team cultures in which the value of diversity can be realized. This session focuses on understanding the foundations of diversity and inclusion, and offers a practical toolset to build and lead a globally diverse team. It starts by defining diversity (e.g., age, gender, culture, personality, skills and abilities, etc.) and inclusion (e.g., trust, psychological safety, respect), and discusses why they are important sources of competitive advantage for teams and organizations.

Interactive activities will help to uncover the neuro-foundations of inclusion and exclusion, and to unpack (and overcome) some of the barriers to fostering inclusive mindsets, teams, and cultures.

During the session, cutting-edge business simulation (Bridgebuilders) will help you to build inclusive leadership skills by practicing leading and motivating a diverse and intercultural team..

During this event, you will:

  • Understand the benefits and detriments of diversity, and how to create an inclusive team culture;
  • Gain practical tools and frameworks for managing and motivating a global team.

Target audience...

For leaders who manage a global team or aspire to managing one.
