Aperian Global, a leading provider of consulting, training, and web tools for global talent development, today announced that Dr. Ernest Gundling, co-founder and president of Aperian Global, will be the featured speaker in the CEO Speaker Series of The American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, May 21, 2013, at the J.W. Marriott Hotel Tomorrow in Shanghai, China.
The presentation, “What is Global Leadership?,” will focus on a key point that many companies around the world are missing: global leadership is distinctly different from the leadership skills needed in a domestic operation. Dr. Gundling will discuss the cutting-edge research conducted by Aperian Global, including first-hand interviews with successful global leaders, which highlight ten key behaviors critical to international settings, such as cultural awareness, frame-shifting, and developing “third-way” solutions.

He assists clients in developing strategic global approaches to leadership, organization development, and relationships with key business partners. He coaches executives with global responsibilities and works with multicultural management teams to help them formulate business plans based upon strong mutual understanding and a joint commitment to execution.

Dr. Gundling has lived in Japan, Germany, and Mexico and has travelled extensively throughout Asia. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and currently lectures at the Haas School of Business at the University of California Berkeley.
