GROWING GLOBAL EXECUTIVES: THE NEW COMPETENCIES

BY SYLVIA ANN HEWLETT AND RIPA RASHID 

TRADE PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

GROWING GLOBAL EXECUTIVES: THE NEW COMPETENCIES uses insights from focus groups and survey data from highly qualified employees across eleven countries (Brazil, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey, the US, and the UK) to provide a robust leadership template for multinational companies seeking to globalize their top talent. With global markets shifting to the South and East, multinational companies can no longer afford to depend on ex-pat executives as local proxies. The global economy demands new leaders and the authors find that emerging leaders are in want of two core competencies: the ability to calibrate their leadership presence to project credibility to senior leaders as well as teams and clients worldwide; and the ability to unlock value from globally dispersed and culturally diverse teams through inclusive leadership.

How can multinational companies unlock the innovative potential of local teams? What should be the focus of leadership development? What will it take to move more local talent into global leadership roles?

GROWING GLOBAL EXECUTIVES: THE NEW COMPETENCIES examines the information and new ideas needed to fulfill unmet needs and seed growth in local marketplaces.
