Taruni Falconer – Cross-Cultural Leadership Habits

Taruni Falconer - Cross-cultural Leadership HabitsTaruni Falconer

Cross-cultural communication expert Taruni Falconer helps people work in other cultures or come to Australasia. Her role is to help them navigate their new cultural landscape and work settings.

Effectively, Taruni Falconer is a Habits Coach. She helps leaders communicate effectively in high-stakes situations and teach them how to develop powerful habits and practices.

Taruni Falconer is aware that to be successful in cross-cultural situations we need to communicate in a way that is appropriate to the new setting – rather than accidentally offending the locals. And, that how we communicate goes beyond the words we use.
