‘Ask Lena & Lisa’: Invitation to Participate

A call to action to our members!

The EACCNY has launched a new “Advice Column” to tackle questions surrounding cultural leadership and communication skills. Do you have any questions that need answering? Please send your questions on communication to Lisa Patti, and your cross-cultural leadership questions to Lena Beck Roervig.

See more details below.

Concept, Goals & Process:

Leadership advice column with a focus on intercultural leadership & communication skills.

Cultural differences can be both obvious or subtle, however, both cross-cultural leadership skills and the ability to express yourself and communicate effectively in international settings will give you a competitive advantage.

That is the reason we are starting a new two-pronged “Advice Column” in the EACCNY’s monthly newsletter.

You can write your leadership and communication questions directly to either Lena or Lisa and they will be answered and published in the EACCNY newsletter.

Lena and Lisa look forward to answering your questions!
