Highlight #2 from TCP Live#5 - How to Lead like a Diplomat?
If you’re looking for ways to improve your business, increase productivity, boost revenue, and have more overall success, one thing makes a difference: people working together.
#Teamwork & business deals involve a group of people getting together to accomplish a common goal.
But in this era of #globalization, most such interactions have people of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds working together.
On a day-to-day basis, we collaborate with different people to get them to move in the same direction and create a win-win outcome.
In last month’s TCP Live on “How to lead like a diplomat?” Peter Metcalfe, Partner at Oliver Wright shared his expert insights on best practices to win in these situations using the art of diplomacy. He shared how being diplomatic means having the awareness of the person one is dealing with.
One of the best ways to prepare for this is to do your background research and learn as much as you can about the people you are meeting/working with.
That means you’ll need to spend time preparing your first meeting from start to finish.
Do you agree?
