The world market is expanding and barriers between countries are dissolving. As a result, the demand of the world market is no longer influenced by market players of developed countries alone. The market players from developing and under-developed countries are becoming more influential. Doing business in one's domestic front alone is no longer a sound sustainable business strategy.

With such transformations taking place on a global scale, the dynamics of leadership style are also undergoing substantial changes. Such changes include a better understanding of cultural differences, business practices, business ethics and styles of the multicultural business players. For business leaders to face this ever-changing global marketplace and to establish sustainable business success, they need effective communication skills.

In this webinar, Dr. Syamal Poddar will discuss and schematically describe a successful leadership style, covering what global leaders need to know about verbal, non-verbal, and cross-cultural communication skills, and their importance in leading a business or a project in a global environment.
