potential barriers to effective executive teaching
Potential Barriers to Effective (Executive) Teaching

Religion

Must be considered in the program design and the choice of instructors in predominantly Muslim countries

Language and Communication

Level of English language proficiency is unpredictable and inconsistent in many countries

Differences in communication styles can be a source of irritation, mis-understandings and conflicts

Culture

Fundamental differences in philosophy, styles, and approaches to leadership development and teaching

Deep seated cultural bias towards authoritarianism can pose obstacles to the successful implementation of leadership development initiatives and prevent trainees from applying new skills in their work environment

Trainees respond well to various teaching methods but may have a preference for more structured over experiential learning methods
