Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) March 01, 2016
Maureen Metcalf, CEO of Metcalf & Associates, Inc. and VoiceAmerica Business host interviewed Rattan D'Souza, founder and President of the Inrica Group, a management consulting firm that provides advisory services in strategy, global business and market development. The interview aired February 16, 2016, and focused on planning and implementing global strategies. She also interviewed Steve Terrell Ed.D., President of Aspire Consulting, about his work building global leaders as part of the series discussing how one can develop highly effective global leadership, on October 15, 2015. Metcalf, Terrell and Ben Mitchell, Extrusion Coatings sales and marketing manager for AkzoNobel, wrote the Innovative Leadership Workbook for Global Leaders, winner of Best Business Reference Book, and Best Business Career Book Finalist in the 2014 International Book Awards.
According to Kelechi Kalu, Ph.D., Vice Provost for International Affairs and Professor of Political Science at University of California, Riverside, “In today’s global economy, it is critical that successful leaders develop strong leadership skills. Leaders need a solid grasp on the key skills required to operate anywhere and, without effective skills, leading across borders can result in frustration and a sense of personal and professional failure.” Metcalf & Associates offers invaluable tools, including the Innovative Leadership Workbook for Global Leaders, leadership courses and coaching, and VoiceAmerica interviews with global experts, that support building these strong global leaders.
“Leadership needs innovation the way innovation demands leadership. By combining them, you improve your capacity to deliver results and your organization’s capacity to affect change,” says Metcalf. The Innovative Leadership Workbook for Global Leaders, designed specifically for busy leaders who work for or lead global companies, includes field-tested processes and worksheets for innovating how one leads, transforming one’s organization, and creating sustainability.
“Our experience and training as global leaders tends to focus our attention outward on the cultural contexts within which we do business. Wisdom shows the importance of the inward development of how we make sense of the complexities we face and our resilience in facing turbulent environments. This workbook weaves together both with very practical, time-proven processes, highlighted with great examples from colleagues in the global trenches,” says Jim Ritchie-Dunham, Ph.D., President of Vibrancy Global, Adjunct Faculty at EGADE Business School (Mexico), Harvard, MIM Thunderbird School of Global Management, and MBA ESADE (Barcelona).
Metcalf & Associates uses an integrative approach to help leaders and their organizations innovate how they lead and operate, helping them thrive in a rapidly changing environment. CEO Maureen Metcalf is an acclaimed thought leader, who developed, tested and implemented emerging models that dramatically improve leaders and contribute to organizational success.
