Mindfulness - a building block for cultural intelligence

Last month I wrote about mindfulness – how it can help us in a volatile, uncertain, ambiguous and changing world.

 Mindfulness is also a critical component of cultural intelligence.  If you are living or working in a different culture or working with people from different cultural backgrounds it will be helpful for you.  So let’s look at what mindfulness is and consider how it relates to cultural intelligence.

Donald Trump, leadership and mindfulness

Many in Australia have been watching the US Presidential election race with bemusement.  Some have been watching with anxiety and fear. 

As a potential future leader of America, Donald Trump adds to many people’s increasing feelings of uncertainty.  News of Brexit, terrorism and the refugee crisis presents a world that appears more volatile and chaotic.   

Add in a changing job market (increasing use of artificial intelligence in the workplace, greater diversity in gender, age and ethnic background), and the constant demands that the 24/7 connected world brings - its no wonder the uncertainty increases. 

Volatility, uncertainty, chaos and ambiguity – the acronym VUCA describes what many people are experiencing.

There are excellent business models that help plan for business continuity through VUCA but what are the personal skills that can help take the focus from the apparently growing craziness, the constant overwhelm of tasks, or the complexities of managing in a diverse global world?

To be notified of future webinars click here »

Global leadership - the challenge of the 21st Century. 

What does a leader need to be effective in a global organization?  Leading people from different countries, different cultures, with different languages, experiences and perceptions can be challenging.

Research shows that cultural intelligence can make a difference in successful global leadership.  What is cultural intelligence (CQ)?  How can leaders increase their cultural intelligence and how will it impact their leadership?

These are the questions we focused on in this saved webinar.

I interviewed an expert in the field of leadership and Learning and Development and one of my favourite facilitators.  Kerry Rosser has worked with leaders at all stages of their leadership journey.  She has designed and facilitated leadership training at senior levels for some of Australia’s largest businesses, and coached leaders in executive roles. Her leadership development experience also includes training and coaching leaders from government and academia. 

With a degree in adult education and postgraduate accreditations from the University of NSW and Harvard University Kerry can help you with leadership skill growth.  Together we looked at how CQ can enhance your leadership skills in the global arena.

Neuroscience - Rethinking everything

Have you ever had one of those learning experiences where you really learnt?  Where you came away from the event buzzing with new ideas you wanted to share with others and thinking about how you could begin to take action on insights?  

The recent Australian Human Resources Institute National Convention in Brisbane was one of those experiences for me.   And I can explain why!

I can explain why – not just from a conceptual perspective of how the ideas appealed to me but also from a neuroscientific perspective in relation to how the learning was experienced.  Those insights are due to the pre-convention workshop by the NueroLeadership Institute founder, Dr. David Rock   Neuroleadership: Rethinking how we learn and breaking bias.
