Drawing precipitated conclusions in the area of communication during multicultural interactions can cause, among others, misunderstandings and low productivity.
Let’s see why it is important that you improve your communication in environments of cultural diversity and how you can avoid hasty conclusions.
Globalization is a great opportunity to extend new frontiers, both personally and professionally. Yet, it’s a challenge for the global leader who is facing cultural differences and who seeks better results not only personally but organizationally as well.
Let’s observe the benefits that the leader and the organization have when they are not resisting change in a multicultural environment, and how this flexibility in a globalized world is a fundamental element both in a successful corporate culture and in the development of the global leader.
Informal meetings between entrepreneurs or “networking events” is one of the activities in which the global leader faces cultural differences.
Let’s look at the benefits of building business relationships and how having interest and curiosity towards other cultures can become a competitive advantage for entrepreneurs in today’s world.
By extending the frontiers, the global leader facing cultural differences discovers the needs to embrace ambiguity and still have successful relationships, teams, and organizations.
Let’s see how avoiding and mishandling uncertainty can prevent you from extending your borders successfully and thrive in your next step. Let’s also observe how you can improve your ability to handle ambiguity in the globalized world in which we live.
In the multicultural and globalized world in which we live, understanding others is the difference between having –or not having better clients, teams, and organizations. The tendency of the global leader towards diversity is one of the advantages that allow him to easily understand others.
Let’s see why to Understand other people in a globalized world can mean the success or failure of your career or the project you want to achieve and 4 easy steps that can help you to successfully understand others.
More than 3.5 billion people, who make up about half of the planet’s population, are connected through social networks. These are figures that we can’t ignore since much of what happens around us today is being influenced by these numbers.
If your personal and professional abilities, your experience and your perspective are not based on a global and multicultural mentality, you are losing all the opportunities that globalization offers you. One of these opportunities is to expand your cultural understanding, but perhaps the most critical is to avoid misunderstandings in multicultural teams.
So let’s see how the lack of cultural understanding and global mentality leads to a cultural shock and misunderstandings in multicultural environments, and how we can avoid them.
Every failure is an opportunity to better yourself. Even the best businessmen admit that their first efforts were full of failure. Mentally strong people are willing to fail over and over again, if needed, as long as the learning experience of every “failure” helps then get closer to their end goal.
Let’s see how mentally strong people continue pursuing their goals even after failure, and what kind of perspective has helped them achieve this.
Both at a personal and a professional level, mentally strong people that have developed their emotional intelligence tend to earn the trust of those that surround them. They know that it is essential in order to maintain good relationships and to reach goals that are common for all, this is why they are intentionally building their character daily.
Let’s examine that mentally strong people do to build their character, and what kind of attitudes they reflect onto others.
Experience and knowledge are usually the results of new mistakes. However, when it is time to recognize and correct the mistakes, not a lot of people are willing to do so. People with high emotional intelligence do accept their error and immediately start working towards correcting or fixing the situation.
Let’s see what mentally strong people do to improve themselves and to not make the same mistakes over and over again, and what it is that makes it easy to leave mistakes behind.
Those who don’t know how to manage past situations that happened in their life, to transform them into experiences and lessons for the future, are destined to have a narrow vision. Due to this, those who develop their emotional intelligence and have a strong mentality avoid using their mental energy in past disappointments or in fantasies of “the glory days” they used to have. Rather, they spend most of their energy on creating an optimal present and future.
Let’s see what successful people do during the difficult situations and challenges they face daily, and their achievements, and how they are able to avoid being stuck in the past from having any kind of influence on them.
