Making the most of both worlds

OUR PROJECT

Welcome to Leading Across!


This project stems from our experiences working in multicultural business environments. 

Beyond the stereotypes and cliches, we think universes of beliefs, behavioral patterns, and semantic attributes may hinder communication and relationships between people diverse in culture and nationalities.


Familiarizing with the other culture can encourage integration, equity, inclusion, and a sense of belonging within the workplace and enhance individuals' leadership and communication skills.

 

DID YOU KNOW THAT?

45%

American Business Leaders

highlight that ineffective communication leads to increased cost for the organization. 39% of leaders experienced missed deadlines due to poor communication.

55%

Italian Professionals

affirm that a different approach to solving problems is one of the main difficulties they encountered when taking on a new working experience in the US.

38%

Italian Professionals

wish they had access to a combination of Cross-Cultural Training and Buddy Systems to facilitate their integration in the US workplace.

 

DISCOVER MORE ON OUR RECENT STUDY

Leading Across interviewed 30 Italian Professionals with a significant amount of experience in the US, to analyze the main challenges and strategies for cross-cultural integration in the workplace.
