Cultural differences are a major source of confusion and conflict in international business. In this interactive presentation, you will learn to recognize your own cultural orientation; notice and identify cultural tendencies in any environment; predict problems culture-based difference will cause in the workplace; and develop management strategies. McCombs School of Business faculty members Deirdre Mendez, Orlando Kelm, and John N. Doggett will use real-world examples and audience feedback to show you how to recognize and manage cultural differences on international partnerships, teams, and projects of all kinds.

The proverb, "What gets measured gets managed," has been attributed to Peter Drucker, the great management consultant and educator. Surveys are one method commonly used to measure factors important to organizations. For instance, they can be effectively utilized to gain key insights into the people who are served. Customer satisfaction surveys are often used to identify product and service strengths and weaknesses, to ultimately make improvements. Employee surveys are frequently used to determine employee engagement in order to identify ways of increasing job satisfaction and job performance. However, creating a valid survey and deploying it effectively can be challenging. This webinar will focus on the effective use of surveys to assess customer and employee satisfaction. Scientifically based techniques for survey item development will be reviewed in a straightforward manner so that participants can readily apply these approaches. The presentation will also review data visualization methods that enhance the interpretability and communication of survey results.

Values matter in the workplace, because they determine the frame that we place on the interactions that we have with others. To put this into context, it is important to understand the psychology of values and the role that these values play in the way people interpret the world. We discuss this point in the context of negotiation and competition in the workplace. Negotiation affects not only the particular outcome being discussed but also the relationships among people that determine what counts as the successful outcome of a negotiation. We also explore the role of values in determining broader issues in the workplace like work-life balance, and the responsibility companies have to the society around them. Learn more.
