Event Calendar / Global Competency Within a Leadership Framework
Details & Time Frame
Global Competency Within a Leadership Framework
In the words of the Disney attraction “It’s a Small World”, and few can argue that today’s leaders need to be adept at navigating a multicultural business environment. For a truly global approach, rather than one that varies from office to office or region to region, this needs to be built through leadership development frameworks. The challenge, though, is how to identify those potential leaders, equip them with the skills they need and provide opportunities to gain meaningful international exposure.
One route is to link the international assignment strategy to a talent management strategy as a way to develop and retain those employees that can demonstrate both functional and cultural dexterity. Using standardized candidate assessment techniques as part of your formal performance review process can help send the right leader to the right place at the right time. In addition, cultural preparation can reduce the risk of assignment failure, develop culturally competent leaders and reduce attrition of those you can least afford to lose; all the while meeting corporate goals.
The other way is through an enterprise wide commitment to put cultural training at the top of the agenda through resources and education. If led from the top, a program to energize and educate the organization about culture can move your company from being one with a global footprint to a truly global company.
This presentation will discuss how culture plays a part in everyday business life, competencies that make successful global leaders and how to formalize your leadership development using successful international assignments and employee development.
