The newest Corporate Executive Board research shows that only 17% of leaders in a global leadership role today can be considered a “great global leader” — meaning one that achieves both their current performance objectives and is building the foundation for the future success of their business. One of the challenges is around whom organizations are putting in these roles — the people that want them are very likely the people who will be least successful in them. Another really interesting finding is that in order to build and enable success in these global roles, organizations are going to have to recalibrate their tolerance for risk because some of the best practices we’ve seen involve external partnerships for leadership development.
You will learn:
- How to define a great global leader in terms of both current performance and foundation building objectives
- What characterizes great global leaders in terms of their aspirations, competencies and activities.
- The development experiences that build the most important competencies for rising global leaders today
- Why organizations need to engage in riskier development activities to grow the capabilities and networks of their global leaders.
