Teamwork in the Global Workplace
"Flexing" is the art of switching between communication/cultural styles to more effectively engage people who are different from you. While technology has connected us globally, it has made it more challenging for us to decipher cues and subtle nuances that we encounter daily. Our workplace requires individuals with increased agility who can tap into the diverse needs of their team members, managers, and colleagues. It is a must-have skill that can be developed. In this dynamic keynote, you will see the costs of not managing differences effectively, and more importantly, the rewards gained from “flexing” your approach to obtain better outcomes. These practical principles will inspire you to forge stronger relationships in work and life.
Today’s connected marketplace and evolving workplace demographics demand more agility to navigate differences in motivations, preferences, and communication patterns. Culture profoundly impacts interpersonal dynamics in your teams, as well as high-stakes relationships you need to build with clients. To succeed, you need to crack the unwritten “code” for understanding cultural differences in business. This new navigational skill will enable you to excel in today’s complex, changing, and multicultural work environment. International bestselling author & executive coach Jane Hyun unpacks the skill of “cultural fluency” and teaches the principles for achieving high performance by bridging differences.
