DISCOVER THE NEW GLOBAL WORKFORCE
Our workforce is now truly global and to be a leader you need to understand the make up of your team in an entirely culture new way. Global leadership begins with working with both cultural and generational richness of your individual members.
Cultural bias refers to how we unconsciously interpret and judging phenomena by standards inherent to one's own culture. The phenomenon is sometimes considered a problem any many courses have attempted to develop methods and theories to compensate for or eliminate cultural bias. Moving beyond cultural bias into cultural conscience ensures you understand and know how to maximise the rich diversity of skill, knowledge and unique approaches your culturally diverse team brings to your performance and success.
Learn the key conventions of language, notation, proof and evidence let's learn about them, embrace them and make use of our differences to work together in a truly global workplace.
As the workforce continues to age and we are encouraged to work longer before retirement, leaders are increasingly working in multi-generational environments. These environments are rich in experience, high in risk taking and full of wisdom and energy. Understanding and knowing how to harness the generational expectations of your team will reap extraordinary benefits in cross team collaboration, higher levels of individual performance and greater team unity and support.
Eliminate Cultural Bias with Cultural Conscience Development and Harness Multi-Generational Expertise and Energy
WELCOME TO THE COURSE
Hello and welcome to the course. Surprisingly, when I moved to the UK one of the largest challenges I faced was in understanding the work culture. The fact that it was so incredibly different to the Australian work culture was something that I hadn't event considered. To say I struggled is an understatement! On the other side of these struggles I've discovered that taking the time to delve into understanding and working with these differences is incredibly rewarding and creates a richer and stronger team. I'm currently working on developing this course but I'm so excited by it that I wanted to share it with you and give you the opportunity to so lock in a vary special low price.

WHAT MAKES A GLOBAL LEADER?
AS MANY DEFINITIONS AS THERE ARE LEADERS
Your are unique! There is in fact only one of you in this entire world, which means that your leadership will be unique too!
This is exactly why leadership in and of itself has been so notoriously difficult to define. It was over 40 years ago, that Ralph Stogdill (1974) argued “there are almost as many different definitions of leadership as there are persons who have attempted to define the concept” (p. 7). Flash forward to the 21st century and Gary Yukl (2013), in his well-known book on leadership in organisations, put forward a similar view.
Nevertheless, definitions of leadership continue to be crafted and here are a few:
“Leadership is an activity or set of activities, observable to others, that occurs in a group, organisation or institution, and which involves a leader and followers who willingly subscribe to common purposes and work together to achieve them.” (Clark & Clark, 1996, p. 25)
“Leadership is not a person or a position. It is a complex moral relationship between people based in trust, obligation, commitment, and a shared vision of the good.” (Ciulla, 2014, p. xv)
“Leaders need to shape the future, get things done, manage others, invest in others, and demonstrate personal proficiency.” (Ulrich & Smallwood, 2012, p. 32)
“Leaders determine or clarify goals for a group of individuals and bring together the energies of members of that group to accomplish these goals.” (Keohane, 2014, p. 152)
