The purpose of the Leader Cultural Intelligence (LCQ) elective is to offer the necessary inputs to better confront the challenges that come with navigating multiple cross-cultural encounters at work, with colleagues, clients, suppliers and other stakeholders, and deal with leading multicultural and/or virtual teams.
This module provides participants with the theories, tools, and techniques based on research in the scientific fields of cultural anthropology, cross-cultural psychology and cultural neuroscience.
Module is designed to address several fundamental aspects of leading people in a global context. These include understanding how cultural values influence expectations, and therefore motivation and behavior in the workplace, developing awareness of one’s own cultural identity and values, and switching between multiple paradoxical leadership behaviors in function of different cultural settings, in order to drive high performance through purpose, objectives, feedback and coaching.
The elective consists of preparation work including a pre-program assessment of Cultural Intelligence (CQ) and Cultural Values, and two days of face-to-face learning modules, using interactive lectures, workshops, exercises, role-plays and feedback in order to tailor to different learning styles. The session is led by two facilitators to optimally use the different learning methodologies to develop the participants.
