Program Overview

"Leading from the Inside Out" is intended for business leaders who manage multi-cultural teams and/or are relocating to Latin America from other regions, or within Latin America to assume new leadership roles. In this highly interactive workshop, participants will develop their intercultural competence through experiential activities and the CultureActive self-assessment tool. Attendees will also gain a greater self-awareness of their own cultural identities and learn how to apply cultural frameworks of various communication styles and behaviors to successfully navigate business scenarios throughout commercial hubs in Latin America. Each participant will leave the course with a behaviorally based action plan to put the class concepts to work back in the office.

Saltar Consulting will be our bilingual partner (English/Spanish) in delivering the program, with Natalie d’Aubermont Thompson leading the sessions.
