Developing Global Leaders - Creating a Global Mindset for Organizations and their Leaders


About this Course

Globalization has resulted in changes about not just where but also how we conduct our business activities. Fast pace, complexity, interconnectedness, interdependence, more diversity, more uncertainty and less clarity are today's reality.

This 2-days workshop is an introductory program that is designed around the Global Competency Model which was developed based on research and decades of international experience. The model includes six areas which global leaders need to be competent in. 

These are:

  • Identifying, leveraging and shaping global trends;
  • Being able and willing to develop global alliances and international networks;
  • Being culturally competent;
  • Working with international and virtual teams;
  • Optimizing diversity; and
  • Acting and leading in a socially responsible manner.

We have developed this program with today’s and tomorrow’s leaders in mind. They have to be able to meet the challenges of globalization, to function effectively and efficiently in an ever more interconnected and interdependent world. Global leaders need to adapt their leadership style, probably using a more collaborative leadership approach.

In order to further develop certain skills, we recommend other specific workshops on these six elements of the Model.
