The international reality in the workplace - leverage your skills to become a sought after asset in the global workplace

Lauren Herrera's curator insight, October 8, 2013 1:30 PM

This talks about how in order to do business in other cultures, that we need to understand that country, be able to speak that language, and not insult that culture without realizing that you have.  This is important if you are to branch out and do business in other countries.

MyKLogica's curator insight, October 2, 2013 4:13 AM

Un buen artículo sobre cómo ayudar a conseguir una mayor involucración de los colaboradores con la empresa, ahora bien, hemos de tener en cuenta que dicha "storytelling" ha de ir acompañada por algo más que una narración interesante. De nada sirve hablar sobre los sueños del fundador, dónde queremos llegar ... si después en el día a día, el storytelling se convierte en una "telling de miedo, abusos, desprecios ...".

 

El verdadero arte de una involucración de este tipo, es cuando se integra en el ADN de la empresa y no son sólo los "líderes" quienes te lo cuentan, sino los propios compañeros porque es una vivencia y experiencia diaria.

Five Leadership Lessons From Cirque Du Soleil

Five Leadership Lessons From Cirque Du Soleil | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

A leader is no different from the performers at Cirque Du Soleil. As a leader, you need to combine your skills into a single repertoire from which you trust, lead and inspire your team and people around you.  As a leader, you need to push beyond your comfort level, believe in yourself and your team and pave the way forward.

Are you ready to lead the way?
What are you doing to create an environment of trust, synergy, mindfulness and grace?
How do you bring your creativity out?
What do you do when you feel stuck and in a rut?
What do you do to excel in what you are talented in?

Innovation Isn't Just About New Products

Innovation Isn't Just About New Products | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

Innovation intent must be vividly clear for everyone in your organization, especially at the top. The intent must be concise to help drive alignment to business initiatives and must help articulate specific employee behaviors necessary at all levels for an innovation climate to take root. When designed correctly, innovation intent is clearly linked to and driven by the business strategy.

Roberto Abramovich's curator insight, October 4, 2013 5:11 AM

Its difficult to talk about innovation capabilities without falling into cliches. If there is one which is true is the C-level sponsorship, namely CEO and peers. There are so many barriers that hinder the ability of a group to trully innovate, that if there isnt a strong support from top this just doesn't happen. Good ideas get killed to "sustain" initiatives, like line extensions and other limited impact activities.

Chery Gegelman's curator insight, September 24, 2013 5:53 AM

"Employees are tired of excuses and just want people to be real about how they feel and honest about what needs to be accomplished.   Employees are fed up with the office politics and corporate rat-race and  are ready to start having fun again.   They want a workplace that is challenging, encourages trial and error and makes them feel that they matter."

John Michel's curator insight, September 24, 2013 12:54 PM

Employees want an awakened, dynamic spirit to come alive at work.  They are tired of excuses and just want people to be real about how they feel and honest about what needs to be accomplished.

MyKLogica's comment, September 24, 2013 11:31 AM
Yes, I would say yes. How, on the competency level. A person with a good development of his/her assertiveness, empathy and steem, is a person who will be able to deal and get involved in different cultures.
MyKLogica's curator insight, September 24, 2013 11:37 AM

A la pregunta que lanza Jenny Ebermann de si se puede "medir" la "competencia intercultural", mi respuesta es definitivamente sí. Evalua o valora su nivel de desarrollo en asertividad, autoestima y empatía y en función de su desarrollo, tendrás una persona capaz de integrarse e interactuar en diferentes culturas.

 

¿Y a vosotros? ¿qué os parece?
