The qualities that make a manager successful in one culture may be the very reason for failure when leading across cultures. And today, most organisations operate internationally. Even executives based in their home country find themselves managing teams, suppliers, partners or customers in other countries. To add to the challenge, twenty-first century teams are increasingly likely to be multicultural. Traditional management training is no longer sufficient to develop the skills that business leaders require. Fortunately, INSEAD’s new programme, Management Skills for International Business, is there to help. Over five learning-packed days it provides the cross-cultural leadership competence that has become essential for businesses and managers to succeed in today’s global business landscape.
