SUSA News June, 2016

Dear Global Movers and Shakers,

This month please join me in celebrating SIETAR USA most important people: Our members. They are the heart to the organization. They deserve an organization that grows with them. For this reason we, the leadership of SIETAR USA, have been working on many projects with our various hard working committee volunteers to offer benefits and incentives to give our members a striving platform where they can be showcased and get opportunities to have a voice in the intercultural field and become successful internationalist.  I am pleased to announce many initiatives such as our website make-over, eye on ethics, webinars mentoring, scholarships and more. 
We are building a better Society in hope to welcome more new members through our Membership Outreach and Diversity initiatives.  This month of June as we celebrate LGBT Pride Month, we hope you will help us by reaching out yourself to all individuals who contribute to the rainbow of Global Diversity and invite them to join SIETAR USA. 
Happy Summer 2016

Patricia Coleman
President - SIETAR USA

June marks the start of our monthly Ethics Question series. This months question is featured on the new SIETAR USA blog, and we invite open comments from our members and guests as each question is posed. This month's question is:

Subcontractor A and Subcontractor B agree to offer the same rate to their Contractor.
This could be considered as Price - fixing.

Is Price-fixing unethical? If so, why? Can the Living Code of Ethics help us find an answer?

Leading Global Remote Teams
Monday, June 27
17.00 to 18.00 (CET)


Abstract: As Sietarians we are used to developing the cross cultural skills of team members of global teams. Over the last few years, globally dispersed teams who  rarely meet face to face have become more and more common. Many managers feel resistant to managing their teams remotely. In virtual space, management skills are amplified: a good manager becomes and excellent one and a bad managers becomes even worse. During this short interactive session we will look at what competencies remote leaders need in order to bring a remote team to high performance.
Fredrik Fogelberg is an Organisational Psychologist active in the fields of executive coaching, leadership development and team facilitation in international organizations. He has specialized in the area of virtual teams and their leaders. He is owner of Nomadic International Business Psychology, a Europe based group of executive coaches and facilitators. He uses six working languages (Dutch, English, French, German, Norwegian and Swedish) and another three for conversation (Finnish, Russian and Spanish). In 2015 he published the book ‘Live Connections’ a handbook on virtual facilitation
