The focus of this course is on coordinating and sustaining cooperative activities representative of various types of international and cultural boundaries (including generational, gender, and regional). The course covers the practical realities of leading across cultural differences and national boundaries. We will explore differences domestically and globally. This course presents a number of topics relevant to leading an international and/or culturally diverse entity such as a company or non-profit organization. Topics include the role of leadership in global environments and within diverse organizations; the impacts of globalization on the modern workforce; management; communication and negotiation across cultural boundaries; formulating, implementing, and assessing business strategies for global success and managing in an ethical and socially responsible manner. Throughout this course, you will be asked to develop strategies and use examples from your industry and consider experiences from your places of employment, past, and present.
