Managing People Across Cultures

In an ever more global business world, the ability to interact effectively with people from different cultures is vital. To help executives strengthen their cross-cultural management abilities, IESE Business School will offer a complimentary webinar, led by Prof. Yih-teen Lee on Tuesday, April 30.

The seminar "Managing People Across Cultures" will take place at 5:00-5:45 p.m. (CEST in Europe) and 11:00-11:45 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time in the U.S.). To sign up for the free webinar, visit.

During the webinar, executives will discover how the workplace is influenced by cultural backgrounds, values, attitudes and behaviors and develop specific intercultural competencies for leading effectively in an internationally-connected world. Prof. Lee will draw from his research on intercultural leadership to present key learning points.

The webinar will also serve as an introduction for managers interested in participating in IESE's upcoming Short Focused Program, Managing People Across Cultures, which is set for June 18-20, 2013 on the school's Barcelona campus.

Managing People Across Cultures will offer participants practical insights to handle the cultural challenges of managing people in a globalized workplace. Among the cultures covered are Australia, China, Eastern Europe, France, Germany, India, Japan, South Korea, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States. The 3-day intensive learning experience helps managers and leaders develop intercultural competencies so they can be more aware of their own culturally-based perceptions, norms and patterns of thinking and adapt their behaviors according to specific cultural contexts to achieve business objectives.
