Expert on Cross-Cultural Management and Multi-Cultural LeadershipBook Speaker
Living and working in Africa, Europe, and the United States prompted Erin Meyer’s study of the communication patterns and business systems of different parts of the world. Her framework allows international executives to pin-point their leadership preferences, and compare their methods to the management styles of other cultures. Meyer has taught thousands of executives from 5 continents to better observe themselves, and to work more effectively across cultural differences. She has published articles in Harvard Business Review, Singapore Business Times, and Forbes.Com.
Meyer's forthcoming book offers a practical and timely perspective on a pressing business issue: how to unleash the potential of cultural differences to enhance effectiveness and promote goals. Her work on how cultures differ will interest everyone who interacts with friends and colleagues from different countries .
Conducting Business Across Cultures
The qualities that make a manager successful in one culture may be the very reasons for failure in a different country. More and more organizations operate internationally. Even executives based in their home country find themselves dealing with suppliers, partners and customers around the globe. They increasingly need to manage teams made up of people from a variety of cultures. In this interactive lecture, Erin Meyer teaches her audience to decode how culture influences day-to-day collaboration. She explains how managers can improve their own effectiveness and the effectiveness of their staff and team members by applying simple strategies to bridge gaps and transform differences into assets.
