About the Program

High performance organizations require effective communication and leadership among its organizational members, as well as with the external environment. Increasingly, organization development practitioners need to increase proficiency when consulting with organizations which operate in different parts of the world. Therefore, the field of organization development has acquired additional complexities given the need for advanced global considerations and communication.

These complexities will be analyzed and solutions to ensuing challenges discussed. We will explore ways in which capitalizing on the richness of multicultural potential can significantly improve organizational performance. Having organization development practitioners who can successfully manage across cultures is no longer a matter of choice, but one of necessity.

What you will gain:

  • A commitment to developing a global mindset
  • Understanding of the complexities of organization development in a cross-cultural environment
  • Perspectives on solutions for managing multicultural interventions
  • Possibilities for embracing the new opportunities and capitalizing on the richness of multicultural potential
