A geography of time
08 Jun 11:15 — 12:00
About the session
Around the world not everyone views time in the same way, and its perception has a striking impact on how cultures have developed and how they act both in business and in the personal sphere.
Time and its understanding affect more than how we schedule or how we structure our days, and they are one of the many dimensions we should be aware of when we are working among other cultures.
When leading a global team, differences in how we agree, make decisions or deliver feedback can make or break your relationships with and between team members, and with stakeholders and clients.
This session will explore time and other dimensions of operating in multi-cultural environments, help you understand your team members and colleagues better and give you a few pointers on how to leverage cultural differences to drive action.
