We know much about globalizing corporations via technology and the like; we know much less about globalizing people. What globalization means for executives as individuals---how their roles change with globalization; what individual personality traits, skills, and experiences will matter most; and how easy, or difficult, it is for them to adjust. Indeed, corporations are raising concerns about their management teams. Based on an extensive research project including data from over 14,000 managers from companies around the world, this session will describe essential global leadership attributes called Global Mindset. They are attributes that move beyond cross-cultural intelligence to the ability to operate effectively in different institutional, legal, and social contexts. You will leave this session with a clear understanding of what Global Mindset is, how to measure it, and, most importantly, how to nurture it in your organization in ways that leverage performance and effectiveness.
