Program Description:

As our world “shrinks” and globalization increases, companies are changing operations and strategies. And developing future global leaders is an essential component for successfully carrying out those changes.

Because of the increasing demand for global leadership, there is currently a significant shortage of prepared leaders. Therefore, strong global leadership development (GLD) programs are urgently needed to address this gap.

In his doctoral dissertation, John Gillis Jr. describes the deficiencies of current GLD programs, and summarizes the disjointed research on this topic. In this presentation, he covers the key issues you should consider when designing a global leadership development program.

Attend this session and learn:

  • How personality traits and global leadership competencies are primarily idiosyncratic to job function, but not to company type
  • Which leadership competencies are the same for domestic and global leaders, and which competencies are more critical for global leaders
  • To create a list of competencies that is manageable, clearly defined and comprehensive
  • To develop learning and development methods that map to the global leadership competency to be developed 

Workplace Learning & Performance Competencies:

  • Talent Management
  • Managing Organizational Change
