Leading Global Teams
Presented by: Kris Fitzgerald
**This Round Table has been postponed until March 16**
Managing an international team is demanding because many factors must be considered. One of them is the culture of the country and organization, which directly influences how changes are carried out in teams. It is also critical to have a solid commitment to sustainability. In a pandemic, it is necessary to consider the hybrid work model that has a global impact on the work, motivation, and cooperation process. In this case, there will be a greater need to form teams to achieve a goal in a short time frame, which requires having the right tools and methods to carry out.
• How to manage international teams with ease
• Get a better understanding of the culture in each country to improve communication and teamwork effectiveness
• How to create more diverse, global leadership styles across functional areas, which can be leveraged in any culture for successful results
• Take up hybrid work models which require new tools and methods; this will allow you to make progress during the pandemic and post-pandemic times
