Developing Global Leaders

Companies would do well to examine their processes for developing much-needed global leaders. Successfully moving talent across the organization and the world requires the commitment of top leadership and a culture that balances individuals’ goals with business needs. Supporting emerging global leaders through feedback and “stretch” assignments speeds up their learning curve; paying attention to repatriation issues helps them continue to contribute on a high level when they come home. Companies that succeed at developing a pipeline of global leaders identify and develop the skills employees working abroad need and provide international exposure at early career stages.
