ABSTRACT
Companies with global strategies need to gain a global perspective at the highest levels of the organization before moving around the world. Global leadership development is needed for CEOs and teams to create mutual, cross-cultural partnerships. A framework for developing global skill sets includes six key concepts: greetings, listening, openness, building solutions, acceptance, and leveraging actions. When companies "go global," they often make the mistake of implanting one system or policy into another culture or country. When they do, there's a huge gap between mindsets that directly affects whether or not the global initiative will ever be successful. For one to achieve the "global leadership" level requires a deeper mindset drawing from multiple points of view, which means they have had to change their behaviors at the strategic level, to think through the first meeting for the present as well as long-term considerations for future mutual success. People who want to attain the "global leadership" level must have the experience to know personnel issues are not simply moving "pawns" on a chess board, but highly complex issues worthy of well-thought- out solutions. The global leader looks ahead like a chess master to study possible moves in response to an opponent's moves, while also thinking ahead about proactive strategies that will win the game.
