Jennie Walker Ph.D., Director of Global Learning and Market Development, Najafi Global Mindset Institute at Thunderbird School of Global Management
How are people globalized? What does globalization mean for executives as individuals and how do 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? Corporations are raising concerns about their management teams with just cause. 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. This session will not only describe exactly what Global Mindset is but also how to measure it, and most importantly, how to nurture it in ways that leverage performance and effectiveness.
