  3. 3. DAY ONE 1. Introduction to the course and expectation setting
 The overall theme of the course is introduced and we explain how the different components play to get in achieving our objective. It is also here we check the participants expectations to the course and make sure that we will meet these expectations if possible. 2. What is true leadership? And how do you become a leader instead of a manager?
 It is important to distinguish between being a leader and a manager. It requires two different set of skills and personalities and here we will explore these and find out what characterises a good leader 3. Introduction to Cultural Intelligence
 One of the core qualities successful global leaders possess is the ability to create results across cultures.They are successful in doing this because they possess a high level of cultural intelligence.Through this douse we will develop the participant’s cultural intelligence 4. The Cultural Iceberg
 The first step in developing cultural intelligence is to understand the different layers that forms any culture.When understanding this we can much better analyse an unfamiliar situation and avoid falling into the cultural traps that courses lost opportunities, reputation damage less credibility. 5. The Cultural Dimensions
 In order to understand and manage cultural differences, we need to break a culture down into components we can work with.We therefore introduce the participants to 6 cultural dimensions. It is along these dimensions most synergies - and clashes happen. By understanding that next level in cultural intelligence we can avoid destructive stereotyping and understand why people do as they do.

  4. 4. DAYTWO 1. Introduction to cultural dilemmas - and how important they are
 We usually end up in conflicts when we are in a dilemmas and usually it ends with a compromise. But compromises are bad because none of the parties involved get what they originally aimed at.There is a better solution namely reconciliation, but first we have to learn how to identify the key cultural dilemmas. 2. Cultural reconciliation
 When we have identified the cultural dilemmas it is time to stand out from the crowd and find solutions though reconciliation instead of compromised. In a reconciliation the parties involved get more than they originally aimed at.You will learn how to facilitate a reconciliation process and stand out as a true leader. 3. To to manage your fear
 We don’t like to talk about it, but fear is nevertheless the most important motivation factor we have as human beings.When you stand out as a leader a lot of people depend on you, so as a leader you are more likely to have fears than other people - but you can’t tell anyone. To become successful as a leader it is important to know your own fears and what is the best way to deal with them.We will provide some important tools all leaders can benefit from. 4. Innovation across Cultures
 A cultural diverse team has many advantages. One of the most significant ones is that these teams have much more potential innovation power than monocultural teams.As a global leader you will benefit form knowing how you can unleash that potential and make your cultural diverse team excel in innovation. 5. Managing virtual teams
 A major challenge for many leaders today is how to manage, lead and motivate virtual teams, that might even exist for a shorter period of time. In Gugin we have conducted several research projects on this and we will share our findings and best practices with you Copyright Gugin, 2014 - all rights reserved ::-:: Gugin: www.gugin.com E: gugin@gugin.com

  6. 6. ABOUT GUGIN ABOUT GUGIN We are specialised in helping companies succeed across cultures, by reconciling the differences and turn them into sources of Syngergy. Our clients are companies who are moving into new areas, companies who are going through a merger or acquisition or companies who need to become better at utilising the cultural diversity within their own organisation. BACKGROUND Gugin was established in 2001 by Finn Majlergaard with the purpose to create an international business consulting firm, which could help companies succeed in a globalised world. Gugin has its headquarter in Copenhagen, Denmark, but works on projects all over the world. In a world with rapid change you constantly need to change your processes and operating models in order to stay competitive and being able to pursue the opportunities that arise. Therefore we found it crucial to invest a lot of resources in development of tools and frameworks for companies facing these challenges of globalisation, commoditisation and global alliances. We have 3 main areas of activities; research, training and consulting. They fuel each other, and this way we continously deliver solutions based on experience and innovation. In 2013 we spent more than 5000 hours on research. Copyright Gugin, 2014 - all rights reserved ::-:: Gugin: www.gugin.com E: gugin@gugin.com
