Succeeding in today's global economy requires organizations to acquire, develop, and retain professionals who can operate effectively around the world, irrespective of country or culture. While our world is becoming increasingly more interconnected through cyberspace and international airports, success in global business requires more than a passport and a plane ticket.  In global business it is a function of people-those with an ability to operate effectively in intercultural and multicultural situations –people with cultural agility.  As the competition for culturally agile talent grows, meeting this critical human resource challenge requires highly effective, cutting-edge talent management practices.  This highly interactive Masters Class will describe what cultural agility is (and isn’t) and offer various ways you can help develop a pipeline of culturally agile professionals within your organization.
