Effective global leadership.
Many of us lead people from many different cultures, based in many different locations around the world.
This isn't always easy. Every culture and subculture has its own values, expectations, working styles, norms, languages, and communication styles. If you're leading people from several different cultures, it can be difficult to adapt to all of these.
This is where Wibbeke's Geoleadership Model® is useful. This highlights principles that you can apply to lead people from many different cultures.
In this article, we'll explore these six principles, and we'll discuss how you can use the model to lead a culturally diverse team more effectively.
