Berlitz Global Leadership Training is a suite of capability development solutions which equips Global Leaders with the skills they need for global success.

It provides personnel at all levels of an organization with the necessary communication, intercultural agility and inclusive leadership skills to successfully achieve their objectives in a complex global environment. For international success in the present day, Berlitz – and its many clients – understand that simply acquiring language skills is not enough.

Once language skills are acquired, an additional layer of skills around contextual communication, managing diversity and inclusion, and leadership must be addressed.

Berlitz delivers language learning and cultural programs designed to maximize performance. Our programs address the three components that impact employee effectiveness when conducting international business: corporate culture, national culture and the individual perspective

What is Berlitz Global Leadership Training?

Ask any group of people for a list of basic leadership traits and, depending upon the context, they will suggest competencies such as:

  • Establishing a vision
  • Defining a common goal
  • Communication skills
  • Motivating and mentoring people
  • Critical thinking skills
  • Business acumen and content knowledge

However, each of these activities is made more complex and challenging when operating at a global level, where factors such as language, communication style, and culture come into play. Global Leaders need to be able to execute their leadership duties successfully with teams of people from highly diverse linguistic, cultural, ethical, religious and business practice backgrounds.

The distinguishing factors of Global Leadership are the ability to recognize, adapt to and harness diversity and manage inclusion. The creation of Global Leadership capabilities at all levels of an organization is critical to success in a complex and fast-changing global business environment.

 

 

GLT Facilitator-Led Solutions

Berlitz helps businesses worldwide leverage differences and similarities for maximum performance to reduce risk, enhance innovation and effectiveness.  We focus is on six levels of culture to assure your company operates at maximum performance whatever your business challenge. These include:

  • National/Societal - it is essential to understand the unique "culture" of each nation or society.
  • Social Identity Group - it is critical to account for the cultures of each ethnic, religious, demographic or psychographic group.
  • Six Levels of CultureOrganizational - each organization is said to have its own culture, making mergers and acquisitions and global matrix teams difficult to manage effectively.
  • Functional - to build cross-functional effectiveness and collaboration, addressing functional cultures within organizations is essential.
  • Team - team effectiveness requires understanding the culture of the team members.
  • Individual  - each person has their own unique culture. Operating within any organization, employees must be culturally developed for maximum individual and organizational growth.

Our facilitator-led programs help organizations build the competencies essential for today’s global workforce.
