How do you lead across borders?

The world's economic center of gravity is shifting at a rapid pace – huge emerging economies are the new reality. As businesses operate in an increasingly global context, the most successful leaders are able to see through the eyes of others and to hear the voices of customers and colleagues from around the world. They build their own personal networks, navigate differences, and work effectively across new borders – both the physical borders between countries and the limits of old leadership paradigms.

So, how do you lead across borders?

Ernest-gundlingMeet Ernest Gundling who is the coauthor of Leading Across New Borders -- How To Succeed As the Center Shifts.

This book provides valuable advice for anyone taking a global leadership role. Dr. Gundling shares strategies and tools for working across cultures, leading inclusively, running a matrix team, innovating, integrating an acquisition, and making tough ethical choices.

In this live and interactive TeleSeminar Dr. Gundling will challenge your understanding of established leadership models and he will share hard-won expertise in dealing effectively with a changing leadership reality.

We'll discuss strategies to help you work more effectively at the self, team, and organizational levels, so you can get things done and grow your business.

The trend toward global leadership has emerged full-blown amidst the rising global economy. Today's leadership must understand how to work effectively and efficiently across a variety of contexts. Leading Across Borders provides a roadmap to the new leadership paradigm, helping you expand your own skillset and create forward momentum.

Leading Across Borders is the leadership guide for the new business environment.

"Everybody you will ever meet knows something you don't." - Bill Nye

You are the expert of your own experience. How might we access the wisdom each person holds though?

If you are a leader, trainer, consultant, or facilitator, you want to have all the knowledge, ideas, and stories from the group on the table in order to do your best work. If you are working to break down silos and replace communication barriers with employee engagement and trusting relationships, asking powerful questions is a necessary tool to create that future.

In this engaging TeleSeminar, Chad Littlefield will share 2 Concrete Tools for Asking Powerful Questions that he learned from facilitating over 500 conversations between 5,000 strangers as a facilitator trainer at World in Conversation. Chad will blend learnings from neuroscience and his practical experience to give you practical nuggets that you can use immediately with the groups you serve. 

You'll also learn a bit more about the backstory to why and how he created We! Connect Cards which are being used in over 30 countries to create conversations that matter.

If you’re a leader, you’re the narrator. Today, more and more organizations are recognizing the power of narrative and story as a core leadership discipline.

In this fun TeleSeminar, bestselling business author David Hutchens will introduce you to the fast-growing body of theory around organizational narrative. You will learn how organizations are using narrative to more purposefully create meaning and engagement with their many stakeholder groups; and you will explore ways that stories can be presented as collaborative tools that generate learning and shared meaning.

How To Lead a Teambuilding Workshop Using Google Hangouts On Air

  

This is a live 75 minute interactive workshop I led using Google Plus Hangouts On Air. (HOA) I was in my home office in Asheville, North Carolina and the 30 participants were in Oswego, New York.

The workshop title: "How To Teach Leadership in the Engineering Classroom"

The audience was made up of middle school and high school technology and engineering teachers. 

Prior to leading the live event I met with Dr. Mark Springston and his three person team (graduate students) from SUNY Oswego. I taught the team how to use HOA. I sent a box of "props"  in advance  to Dr. Springston which you'll see participants use in the workshop. Dr. Springston's graduate students helped distribute the props during the session at planned times in the workshop.

I initiated the HOA so I could control the roving cameras (iPads) on my end. Dr. Springston logged in using his Google account and that put me on the big screen in front of the classroom. The 3 graduate students each logged in using their iPad and they roamed the room with those iPads which allowed  me to switch between iPads to offer a different view. 

The university had never used HOA in this manner and none of the workshop participants had ever participated in a live hands-on workshop led using this technology. This workshop received very high ratings from the participants. 

This was the 74th conference held yearly at the State University of New York in Oswego.  http://www.fallconference.com
