This film reflects best practice in both leadership skills and working across functional and cultural boundaries. One of the key benefits is that the lessons are readily transferable to any organisation and leader.

Setting the right direction as a leader and then motivating and aligning people along the way, is a tough challenge for any leader. Achieving this in unfamiliar cultural contexts within a global operating environment creates an extra layer of complexity. Yet the ability to integrate global strategy with local perspectives is increasingly the responsibility of individual leaders undergoing international careers on behalf of their organisations.
This documentary video shows Kai Bendix, Managing Director of Beiersdorf’s Nivea India-affiliate, facing three challenges to his leadership, six months after setting up the company in Mumbai.
Kai faces ethical issues and conflicts, cultural changes, situational leadership, silo-ism, interpersonal conflict and leadership challenges.
The video is divided into learning chapters that will enable the learner to understand the complexity of the leadership choices Kai faces, before learning what actions he took and the consequences of those actions.
