"Intercultural Leadership: Global Success and the Key Role of Training"
with Jason D. Patent, Ph.D.
UC Berkeley Academic Partnership
As more companies look to emerging markets for future growth; company leaders, trainers, change agents, and organizational development practitioners face new challenges and opportunities.
It's not just the giant corporations that are going global. Companies of all sizes are looking to increase efficiencies and enter new markets. We are seeing a tremendous rise in project teams with globally-dispersed members. Leaders are beginning to realize that notions of “diversity” must expand beyond traditional categories to include cultural differences as a key aspect of effective cross-border collaboration.
Companies that invest resources into ongoing intercultural consulting, training and coaching are positioning themselves for success in an increasingly competitive global market. In this interactive session, you'll learn smart approaches to developing intercultural competence.
Applications of behavioral science to change leaders’ behaviors are not common, but they should be. Companies that have embraced such processes typically experience system-wide culturechanges that improve all aspects of theiroperation including: productivity, quality,safety, and employee morale.
This talk will review the basic tenets of humanmotivation, introduce the Evidence-BasedLeadershipTM Model, work through a hypotheticalexample, and conclude with 6 scientifically-validated principles of persuasion that can be used to jump start the behavior change you want.
By the end of this session you will see your role as aleader differently and be able to use some practical toolsnecessary to fulfill this newly defined role. If you want tomake a more powerful difference through your work, don't miss this meeting!

MT. DIABLO ASTD is now part of "The NorCal Consortium" of professional development associations that in addition to the Mt. Diablo ASTD, includes the Golden Gate Chapter, the Bay Area Human Resources Executive Councel (BAHREC), SF ICF (International Coach Federations), National Speaker's Association (NSA) and the South Bay ODN (Organizational Development Network).
Last Year's Big Event:
Several Mt. Diablo Members Became FIRE-WALKERS!
In partnership with Anthony Robbins International, our chapter meeting last May, "Using Peak Performance to Have a Breakthrough Career Year," inspired several members to attend the Tony Robbins "Unleash the Power Within" weekend event last June. They report that it was unbelievably impactful. They learned how to control their state and then demonstrated that control by walking across a bed of hot coals without suffering any burns whatsoever. It was a living, experiential metaphor for how much more we are capable of achieving in our lives and careers, and a weekend with the power to change everything!
