Treasure Hunters: Presentation Outline

Using examples from her own experience, as well as relevant examples from the business world, Sheri explains that leveraging your people across boundaries & borders involves five critical steps:

Acknowledge Complexity. Leading today is fundamentally different than it was just 30 years ago. The most profound difference is the level of complexity involved in day to day interactions…

 

Promote Accessibility. Working across cultures is challenging enough, but it  becomes almost impossible when people do not perceive the need to connect across functions, cultures and geographies. Rather than avoiding critical interactions, or allowing their teams to do so, your people can accept the challenge to increase accessibility across boundaries and borders. Here’s how…

 

Leverage Diversity. All leaders have a choice – they can try and maintain the status quo or leverage the personal and professional differences inherent in global business to achieve both personal and organizational success. By understanding alternative worldviews, a leader opens up a whole world of possibility…

 

Lead Intentionally. The world is littered with leaders who want and hope   for both personal and professional success. The problem is that hopes and wants do   not work as a business strategy. What does work? Companies that can increase their   capacity, build a growth infrastructure and pour fuel into leaders and projects that   will grow the business. To do this, it is vitally important to be intentional.   Your people can do this effectively…with a little help.

 

Focus on Unity. When working with culturally diverse, remote teams, leaders must cast a bold but clear vision of the future. It is essential that your employees stay focused on creating an amazing future and why the status quo will no longer do. They must then engage their teams in the task of executing against the vision to achieve what matters most. RRI’s (Rapid Results Initiatives) are a valuable way to focus on unity…and results!

 

I finish with this inspirational challenge:
