Global leadership competency is essential in today’s knowledge economy. The Harvard Business Review reports that the international trade of goods, services, finance, people, and data contributed 10% to the world’s GDP in 2014 – equal to $7.8 trillion. Increasingly, the product being exchanged across borders is data and information. Unlike physical goods, the trade of information requires a level of human interpretation to translate, analyze, and apply the data – making cultural competence and global perspective essential skills for today’s leaders.

When is the last time you decided to teach yourself something new? What resources did you turn to for guidance? Years ago, we turned to parents or teachers or sought help from experts in the field. We made phone calls or even wrote letters to individuals we wanted to learn from in order to express our interest and open the lines of communication. In today’s interconnected world, you probably already know where to turn. New language? Duolingo. Programming? Codecademy. Hair and makeup, changing a tire or card tricks to perform at parties? Youtube. Now, our opportunities for learning are unlimited. There are few barriers to accessing information, and we are not constrained by library operating hours or geographic distance.
