"Developing Global Leaders for Today's Global Business Environment"
presented by: Barbara Boldt, Dynamic Global Communication, LLC
Global is becoming normal in business. Even If an organization does not have physical operations and employees in different countries, it likely works with suppliers, partners or clients around the world. Developing global skills and competencies in leaders is critical if organizations are to operate effectively and competitively in the global market place.
Global leaders need to be culturally astute and capable of leading across geographic and cultural boundaries. In this one-hour webinar we will explore how the concept of leadership varies across cultures, what competencies and capabilities are considered to be essential for global leaders today and how global leaders can be selected and developed
Upon completion of the webinar, HR professionals will gain insights into:
- What makes global leadership different from plain vanilla leadership
- What is cultural about the concept of leadership
- The skill set that global leaders need in order to be effective
- How global leaders can be selected and developed
- Define global leadership and what makes it special and different
- Explore how cultural differences impact the concept and enactment of leadership
- Identify and explain the skills that are needed to effectively lead in a global organization
