In January I wrote an article for Training Industry that addressed the importance of globalizing your leadership development programs. If you’re doing business in a global environment, you probably already know what is needed: Leaders with a global mindset who can lead international teams, conduct business across time zones and borders, think creatively, communicate cross-culturally, and leverage new technology.
These aren’t skills many of us learn naturally in the American workplace. More often, we develop them through trial and error, expatriate assignments, or customized training curricula. Moreover, research shows that many leadership development programs don’t prepare leaders with the skills they need to excel in a global environment—which is a puzzle, considering that increasing productivity and entering new markets top most companies’ wish lists.
Having said all of that, I’d like to share three essential steps that will help you globalize your organization’s leadership development program. Click here to read my article, 3 Steps to Globalizing Leadership Development Programs.
