Building Your Global Perspective

As the saying goes, the world is getting flatter – but it is not getting any simpler. The way in which companies are developing global leadership is evolving. Gone are the days of leading across cultures with six-month overseas assignments and select development of a handful of high-potential executives. Today all leaders need to adopt a global mindset and integrate cultural intelligence into business operations when developing a global team.

Global Mindset defined:
To cultivate and integrate geopolitical and industry insight, intercultural knowledge, skills, relationships and attitudes to advance our business goals.

Working with a robust personalized feedback report, participants in the developing global leadership experience will gain insight into their own global competencies, including strengths and blind spots. By exploring the different facets of a global mindset, including strategic thinking and inter-cultural cooperation, participants will better understand how they can start leading across cultures.

Building Your Global Perspective is a full-day experience designed around the four developing global leadership principles of learn, understand, practice & apply. It uses business relevant case studies, exercises, videos and a global challenge for teams.
