Lessons from leading 15 international cross-cultural teams.

What do you learn when you have led a $6.5b industry and worked with cross-cultural teams across 15 international locations? You learn that it is like the precious oil upon the head, running down the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments.

When Elias contracted to a company, a household brand in New Zealand, he noticed that there were gaps between perception and reality. He documented them in a 4-page report, which was forwarded to a member of the Executive Leadership Team.

Instead of leading to a meeting, where they could leverage Elias’s extensive experience, he was told to supress his leadership instincts and be a team player. Basically, Elias was told to ‘pull his head in’!

In this Keynote, Elias will challenge his audience to answer the following questions:

» What is happening in the Leadership Team within your organisation?

» Is this a reflection of you, the leader?

» Is the dysfunction starting at the top and flowing down through your organisation?

» Are you will to do something to stop it from destroying everything that you have fought hard to build?
