How can relational leadership contribute to effective cooperation in global [...]
In 2019 the Transcultural Leadership Summit focused on transcultural leadership and cooperation in and with Europe. Europe faces major economic, social and political challenges and transformations, not least within the frameworks of democratic societies, cross-border value creation, migration, and digitalization. The Corona pandemic further increased the relevance and poignancy of this development.
In times of globalisation, the creation of economic and social value literally crosses borders. In terms of the determinants of successful global cooperation, particularly concerning the involved cultural challenges, manifold questions arise: Which characteristics distinguish a transculturally competent person? What does it mean if an organisation pursues a transcultural approach when developing its global strategy? And which learning processes enable and strengthen transculturality? These are some of the topics that a research group which was recently established at LEIZ focuses on.
The 2-day conference programme was based on the work in progress of the Delphi study and aimed to take a closer look at those aspects which, according to the first findings of the study, are considered by the expert group to be particularly relevant for further discussions in the field. In panel discussions, keynote speeches and group sessions, the experts reflected on topics such as “Focus on Commonalities”, “Cultural Competence in the 21st Century”, “Leadership Implications” and “Trends in the Field”, and connected the study results to their particular fields of work and experience.

On www.zu-daily.de our project manager Dr Julika Baumann Montecinos recently gave an interview on the concept of transculturality, which is the guiding concept for all of the Transcultural Caravan’s projects. Questions like "What exactly is transculturality?" or questions on the importance of transculturality are getting answered by Baumann Montecinos.
