Who Should Attend:

The webinar is an invitation-only event exclusively for clients of ELA member
law firms. The information presented will be of particular interest to:

• Global Business Managers
• Leaders of Global Teams
• Human Resources Professionals
• Corporate Executives and Business Owners
• People working globally

The biggest challenges that expatriates face center around their ability to understand and assimilate new cultures and work styles in their new environment.

In this webinar, Lisa Kieffer, Director of Consulting at Aperian Global, and Peter Walts, COO at Employment Law Alliance, will explore some of these challenges and discuss how global employers can use Globesmart to make their international team function more effectively cross border.

What You Will Learn:

We invite you to join us for a one-hour session on “Culture and Communications Issues that Impact Global Business” where a number of these issues will be addressed:

• Why agreements across global boundaries are often misunderstood
• Understanding the multiple meanings of ‘yes’
• How to obtain clear agreement among global colleagues

As part of this session, you will also be given complimentary access to the industry-leading GlobeSmart Profile℠ for use with your global colleagues and team members. The GlobeSmart Profile allows you to quickly see similarities and differences between your preferred style of interacting and that of other cultures, individuals, or team members.
