Über den Kurs

Leaders in business and non-profit organizations increasingly work across national borders and in multi-cultural environments. You may work regularly with customers or suppliers abroad, or be part of a globally dispersed cross-functional team, or an expatriate manager on an international assignment. You may be a member of a global online community, or a development aid worker collaborating with an international network of partner organizations. In all of these contexts, your effectiveness as a leader depends on how well you understand and are able to manage individual and collective behaviors in an intercultural context. In this course – together with a team of Bocconi expert faculty and Bocconi alumni – we’ll explore the theory and practice of international and intercultural leadership and organizational behavior. Social science research has revealed systematic ways in which our behavior differs across cultural contexts – enabling us to more effectively work across borders. Insights from psychology, neuroscience, sociology and anthropology, from communication studies and from management scholarship allow us to understand what shapes individual and group decision making, what enhances or weakens team performance, and how we can build and use our social networks. And the shared practical experience of international leaders allows us to identify concrete steps to enhancing intercultural leadership competence, and to be cognizant of common leadership challenges. Learning about organizational behavior provides a great opportunity to develop your leadership skills and to reflect on your own behavioral tendencies. How do you usually make important decisions? What motivates you and how do you try motivating others? How successfully do you leverage and integrate diverse skills and views in a team? Do you prefer professional relationships with a close-knit group of trusted colleagues, or with a far-flung network of acquaintances from all walks of life? If you really want to learn how organizations behave and take decisions and at the same time develop leadership skills, then this is the course for you. We are looking forward to welcoming you and supporting you on this journey of learning and discovery. COURSE SYLLABUS Week 1 - Leadership Acumen. International perspective on leadership, common traps & challenges, and opportunities of intercultural leadership. Week 2 - Navigating Culture. Impact of cultural differences on organizations, decoding culture, culture classifications and stereotyping, developing intercultural intelligence. Week 3 - Communication.

I have really enjoyed the course and appreciated the work performed by Franz Wohlgezogen and his colleagues to make this course happen. There are multiple great insights and frameworks that have enabled and improved my thinking about leadership in general and in an international context. As an inspiring leader, I realised that working in this role is a complex multifaceted undertaking and the international context makes it even more challenging. At the same time, international leadership is an exciting and promising direction to develop in.

I loved this course! It is very well taught and mentored by Franz Wohlgezogen.

I was very skeptical about taking this course at first as I am not currently placed in an inferior geography for work and therefore wasn't able to picture its relevance. But, the moral and theoretical application of the course teachings is very apt even for a local environment for work.

I would recommend this course to anybody who wants to understand the thought process of leaders and to imbibe the global ideologies of organizational behavior.

Definitely recommended. I have to admit that the course exceeded my expectations. The structure of the course was really clear and the influence of cross-cultural communication in an international context was pointed out in every session. Aditionally, the videos vary from group discussions, to real-world best practices and theoretical models, so it does not get boring. I want to thank the Bocconi Univeristy and Franz Wohlgezogen that they invested the time to make this course interesting and diversified.

This course is divine! The team really put everything into making the idea of cultural navigation digestible: discussion group settings, interviews with alumni and professors, funny bits, case studies with real cases-- it's the complete package. I will always go back to the course materials when I need guidance on management in an intercultural setting, even in my local one! I resolve to foster responsible leadership culture with my followers as well. Thank you, Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi!

Good course to stimulate your thoughts on international leadership and cross culture communication, aspirations and conflicts,. Covered the motivation and conflict resolution topics to a certain extent but is fair considering the duration of the course. Franz was amazing with clear cut thoughts and making things simpler for everyone to understand (thinking of regular courses now). Many videos can be shortened as they are repeating the points. Links are amazing and I will watch one TED talk everyday.

I loved the course and the possibility to hear from different people that were invited by our professor to enrich the course. Franz had all the time an attitude to talk that makes you learn but also reflect on different solutions considering different cultures. My degree is in Business Administration, my Master is in International Cooperation and I am a Transcultural Coach, but also as a researcher, I learned a lot!

Thank you, professor Franz and Bocconi´s team to share such a high-level course!

Great course for leaders working in an international context. Good compilation of relevant theories that can be transferred and applied in practice. I really liked the experiences shared by Bocconi alumni. I also liked the interactive style of the various lectures - good mix between presentation, dialogue and discussion, practical examples. One minor critique – assistant professor could reduce rapidity of talking and pause a little more. That would make it easer to follow, digest and reflect.

It is a five star course. When I signed up I thought it might be interesting but it gives more than I expected. The style of the course is really great and easy to follow. I am working across cultures as a leader and although I know a few things about the subject it can still give me deeper understanding and a better overview as well. I wish this course would have been available when I started my international position, I might have avoided some mistakes. Still it is not too late to learn:-)

This is one of most intriguing courses that I have done so far. Kudos to Instructor Franz and the team. The learning was pleasurable, balanced and gave a fantastic experience while imparting the knowledge on the ILOB topics. The best thing I like about this course is the interweaving of multiculturalism in all the topics of discussion which made it more practical and enjoyable. Thanks and I would highly recommend this course.

This course was really useful for my personal insights due to move to another country for living, and also for my master thesis, which is connected with cross-cultural communication. I would strongly recommend this course for everyone out there.. the world is becoming more and more interconnected, so we need to learn to better communicate with everyone on this planet. Excellent course for that! Thanks a lot!

Such an amazing course and the professor it just as wonderful. I love the format of the course and its a very good introduction to a completely different format than what I have been used to. Discussion topics are very relevant and resource speakers and participants are very knowledgeable. I hope there would be a next phase of this course and would make sure to enroll in it! Thank you very much!!

An enriching course from which I learned a lot about leadership, more specifically, international leadership, and how it relates with an organization. It also taught me a lot- although, I'm sure we were only given the basics (but that was very enlightening already) about culture and its interactions in human relationships and leadership. Thank you for making it available and for free on Coursera.

This was practical, concrete and yet extremely insightful course. It goes beyond what we all think is important for international leadership. It gives practical things that you can apply immediately. I loved the format of interviews, cases, interactions with all kinds of alumni and members of the university.

It was really outstanding! Thank you very much and all the best in expanding this further

Very well and entertaining delivered contents. Not too less not too much. I feel a lot more conscious about my own leadership style and impact after studying this course.

Especially I will focus on fostering my relationships here while working in Asia. Coming from Germany, it takes a long while to understand that giving in advance to prepare for getting back one day is crucial.

Thank you Franz.

This was an excellent course. The delivery was engaging and well presented and the concepts covered provided a fascinating insight in to the impact of international cultures on all aspects of organisational interaction and behaviour. There was an excellent mix of academic models, case study discussion and real life examples from international leaders. I thoroughly enjoyed participating!

I found this course very informative and definitely has changed my view around many issues within an international context! Though I'm not directly going into Leadership, this will definitely be a huge boost towards my goal of business psychology, as I now have an understanding of the issues leaders face that are becoming increasingly salient in our increasingly international societies.
