Our partnership with iTAP International (in association with Geert Hofstede, thought leader in working across cultures and author of “Cultures and Organisations - Software of the Mind”) puts SMG in the forefront today, to help leaders master these critical global leadership and cross-cultural competencies and in turn, be able to leverage cross-cultural leadership as an asset and business advantage.
