How to Effectively Lead People Across Borders with Jessica Schubert

Cross-Cultural Intelligence: How to Effectively Lead People Across Borders with Jessica Schubert

In a recent article “Being the Boss in Brussels, Boston, and Beijing” published on Harvard Business Review, author Erin Meyer begins by saying: “Cultural differences in leadership styles often create unexpected misunderstandings.”

As leaders in business we know that any misunderstanding within our teams is going to impact morale and ultimately performance negatively.

So, joining me today to speak more on the topic of Cross-Cultural Intelligence is Jessica Schubert.

Her passion is to help people increase awareness of who they are as a person and as a leader. She equips them with tools to help them make sustainable behavioural change, to be happier individuals with a greater sense of emotional and social intelligence and to impact people around them positively. Ultimately she supports them to be better leaders.

Over the last 20 years Jessica has led large cross-cultural teams in Europe and Asia in the corporate world and she draws on her expertise in leading and growing organisations predominantly in the services industry but most and foremost from working with people from different backgrounds and cultures.

Dealing with Disruption

Dealing with Disruption: Will you be the Disruptor or the Disrupted? with Pauline Bright

According to Australian Bureau of Statistics one of the biggest challenges for businesses is to stick with it long enough to make enough money. The failure rate is also attributed to a lack of financial understanding and lack of management ability.

In fact Business Women Australia’s Core Data Research confirmed that many femate business leaders saw achieving business growth to be both the biggest macro challenge and biggest opportunity in the new financial year.

Add to that the changes being felt across many industries – disruption is well and truly upon us.

Websites that Allow your Customers to Buy & Not Just be Sold To with Cathy Smith
