Online Module 1:

Leadership Mindset and Skills

(Cultural Understanding and Collaboration)

  • A look at inter-cultural disposition in the culturally diverse marketplace

  • Cultural differences, sub-culture and third culture influences

  • Dilemma and common ground from cultural relativism and universalism perspectives

Living and working in a culturally diverse city is fascinating.  As numerous multi-national firms strive to localise and local firms globalise, with many advocate workplace inclusiveness and equal opportunities, how do we thrive through cultural differences?   How does culture impact power and politics?  Does disagreement about right and wrong imply Cultural Relativism?  What are the common traits in Cultural Universalism that we can capture to communicate, negotiate and influence?  How do leaders lead to develop mutually beneficial businesses and communities?
