Leading Multicultural Teams: Developing Your Cultural Intelligence

Presented by Marie Bankuti, Senior Trainer and Consultant at Corporate Education Group


Are you managing a team of individuals from different countries, or different cultural backgrounds? While research shows that diversity on a team is highly beneficial to creativity, effectiveness, and bringing out the best in each team member, if you aren't comfortable working with and managing the various approaches, it can feel like you're working in a foreign land yourself.

Cultural nuances around directness, formality, assertiveness, body language, and the like can lead to false assumptions about motivation and engagement, often resulting in decisions that further alienate. Performance can suffer, both individually and as a team.


In this interactive session you'll: 
    • Gain insight into different cultural norms and values in business.
    • Develop confidence working with and leading folks from different cultures.
    • Understand how to assess, appreciate, and leverage cultural differences.
    • Support your team members and their interactions with less struggle.

Critical Thinking

Presented by Jody Jones, Ph.D., President at Strategic Transformations


Steps to Making Clearer and More Effective Decisions


In this fast-paced world, one thing is certain: We need sharp critical thinkers who are able to size up a situation, realize the potential where others may not, and seize opportunities through prompt decision making.

We all perform some level of critical thinking in our daily lives, yet most of us don’t really know what it entails or how we do what we do. 

This preview offers you a practical introduction to the highly popular AMA seminar, Critical Thinking. We’ll introduce you to the RED model of critical thinking and describe the basics of putting it into action using a practical case study.


What You Will Learn

AMA's Critical Thinking seminar walks you through making reasoned judgments that are well thought out. Join us to get a preview of how the seminar reveals the methods used to improve your ability to engage in logical and rational thinking, including:


  • How the RED (Recognize assumptions, Evaluate arguments, Draw conclusions) Model is used to get to a decision point
  • The importance of separating facts from opinions
    Three steps you can take to apply critical thinking skills right away  
While attending this preview is FREE, reservations are required.
