6 Reviews

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, International business, Management & management techniques

Whether one is leading an entire organization, a business unit, or a geographically dispersed team, What Is Global Leadership? provides an important resource for developing global leadership talent.

What is global leadership? It turns out that many companies around the world are missing a key point: that global leadership is distinctly different from the leadership skills needed in a domestic operation. The global economy requires a new set of leadership skills - imbued with a global mindset, multi-functional and effective across cultures and nationalities - that were not as critical even a decade ago.

In What Is Global Leadership?, the authors draw on cutting-edge research conducted by Aperian Global, including first-hand interviews with successful global leaders, which highlights ten key behaviors critical to international settings, such as cultural self-awareness, frame-shifting, and developing "third-way solutions."

In addition to providing a detailed description of each behavior, the authors demonstrate how these can be applied in the context of leadership development programs, executive coaching, global teams, and leader-led action learning. Whether one is leading an entire organization, a business unit, or a geographically dispersed team, this essential guide provides an important resource for developing global leadership talent.

Praise for What Is Global Leadership?: 10 Key Behaviors That Define Great Global Leaders

  • Well done! What I like about this book is the emphasis on the importance of the soft side of global leadership. - Fons Trompenaars, co-author of Riding the Waves of Culture and world authority on cross-cultural management

  • Understanding what a global leader is, and what they do, is becoming increasingly urgent. This book does a great job of answering these questions, combining hard science with organizational research and case studies. An excellent resource for anyone trying to select, develop, or work with global leaders in any way.

  • Recent financial, economic, and political turbulence has reconfirmed the importance of leadership in distinguishing global winners from global losers. Extreme diversity of outcomes among otherwise powerful players banks, companies, investors, and even countries is hard to explain any other way. This volume provides an authoritative, engaging and readable primer on global leadership to help explain the past and gain a sharper perspective on the future.
