A global appointment can be exciting, challenging, and a significant career milestone. Stepping into a global role without appropriate help, support, or awareness of the key issues, though, is a challenge often faced by many executives. There is a common assumption that, having worked internationally or nationally, we will instinctively know how to operate in the global arena. This webcast will offer experiences, key lessons learned from seasoned global executives, and hints and tips on how to approach a global role.

Key learnings:

  • Establishing yourself — the first 100 days 
  • Stakeholder engagement/relationship management 
  • Using local resources to understand cultural norms 
  • Leading a team across multiple time zones 
  • Examples of success and failure in global roles
