Globalization has long been an aspiration of companies worldwide, but a literal mandate to expand globally has hit a tipping point in the current economic environment, particularly in the last couple of years. Global Strategy, however, won’t be that effective if you don’t have the right people in place to execute that strategy. First and foremost, the people who you choose to operate overseas need to possess or develop a Global Mindset.
What exactly is Global Mindset? Global Mindset is the ability to influence others who are different than you. It is a critical combination of intellectual, psychological and social capital: Intellectual Capital refers to your global business savvy, cosmopolitan outlook, and cognitive complexity. Psychological Capital refers to your passion for diversity, quest for adventure, and your self-assurance. Social Capital refers to your intercultural empathy, interpersonal impact, and diplomacy.
“We’re really excited about our focus on the Delivering Global Leaders practice. The senior leaders in multinationals and larger middle market firms that I speak with tell me that global leadership development is more important to them than any other issue in global business expansion.
