How Global Leaders Develop

Presenter: Steve Terrell, Expert in Learning Mindset | Leadership & Organization Development | Facilitator | Author


Global organizations face complexity in the dynamics of multiplicity, interdependence, ambiguity, and flux. These forces are driving an increased need for global leaders who possess new competencies that enable them to respond and lead effectively. Many global organizations are finding that their supply of global leaders, or even individuals with the potential to become global leaders, does not match the demand. In this webinar, Steve Terrell will present the results of his research into the developmental experiences global leaders identified as being important in their development as global leaders, as well as what and how they learned from the experiences. Conclusions from this study indicate that global leaders (a) develop through first-hand, cross-cultural and global leadership experience; (b) learn the importance and value of cultural sensitivity, relationships and networks, and curiosity or desire to learn as a result of their developmental experiences; (c) require a unique set of global leadership competencies to effectively fulfill their roles; (d) are driven by curiosity, openness, and a desire to learn; and (e) develop and learn intuitively, dynamically employing ad hoc learning approaches. Implications of these significant findings for global leadership development practitioners in all industries will be discussed.
