For every question that your answer is YES, think
about how you might test your basic assumptions to
develop the capabilities and skills to be an effective
leader in a global organisation.
Here are some questions to get you started:
Describe what you think are the biases of your own
culture towards conflict, transparency and team-
work? How do they impact the way you practice
your role?
Describe 2-3 behavioural patterns of other cultures
that you have encountered which you find most
challenging to deal with in your role? Why?
is a term that many cultures use, yet often it
means different things to different people. Explain
how you would show respect, differently, to various
populations that you work with, such as senior man-
agers, procurement officers, and internals or peers
who challenge the value that you provide?
