I've written a couple of different items for OilPro - an online community for the oil and gas industry that is much like LinkedIn.  Along with several colleagues at Endeavor Management, we've put together a series of writings on high performing (technical) teams, leadership, and the importance of cultural competence in an industry that is as global as the petroleum industry.  My latest can be read here:

  • Hi Terry,

    Great to hear from you.  All is well here in Cairo.  Thanks for the comments regarding my post in OilPro.  I've looked through the presentations for the conference and yours was one that I definitely will not miss.  There are ALOT of really interesting papers and ideas being presented.  I think it will be hard to choose which to attend.  

    Yes - I have already registered for the conference and am excited to be attending.  

    See you in October.


  • Hi Nancy,

    How are things? Good to see you on the Learning Network! Thanks for sharing this information regarding high-performing teams, leadership, and cultural competence. Very interesting read. We are putting the finishing touches to a paper that will be presented at the conference looking at cultural dimensions and select ICF competencies, in fact I'm going to start a discussion post related to that paper and session.

    Regarding your post, I found the framework of: building cultural awareness (self and others), respecting differences and servicing judgment plus using collaborative forms of strategy planning and action = cultural competence, to be very consistent with what I'm learning in both my research and consulting on the topic. I like the clear and practical way you outline this work. Very well done! 

    Hope to see you @ the Conference in October.
