Turning a capable manager into an effective leader has never been as simple as sending someone to a class. And when the need is people who can lead globally, the challenge is even greater. OJT doesn’t work, and unfortunately off-the-job leadership development programs suffer from predictable and avoidable pitfalls that reduce the effectiveness of these costly programs.
Chief among these are the “7 deadly sins” of global leadership development programs, which I have observed during many years of facilitating mixed-culture global leadership programs throughout Asia, Europe, and the United States.
These 7 items form a highly effective checklist for anyone determined to extract the maximum benefit from their investment in global talent development. Full of relevant anecdotes and statistics, this lively and engaging webinar will equip you to avoid these 7 deadly sins, and dramatically increase your company’s chances of surviving and thriving well into the future.

The background screening industry exploded after 9-11-2001 as we became consumed with safety and security. Unfortunately, the pendulum has shifted in the past few years and there is a fast growing movement to restrict the use of background checks because there is a belief that it is contributing to a high level of recidivism among ex-offenders. It is critical important that organizations understand how to conduct legally compliant criminal background checks that align with:
• Ban the Box – Law the removes the option of collecting criminal history information on an application
• EEOC 2012-2016 Strategic Plan- Targets employers that have zero tolerance policies regarding criminal records
• Fair Credit Reporting Act- The FCRA has some very specific requirements that employers MUST follow
• Social Media Background Checks- The proliferation in social media has spawned a “Wild West” approach to searching social media sites as part of the background screening process. However this can place employers a risk of being sued.
