Winning with Transglobal Leadership: How to Find and Develop Top Global Talent to Build World-Class Organizations
by Linda D. Sharkey, Nazneen Razi, Robert A. Cooke and Peter Barge
In the early days of overseas expansion, companies could afford to overlook poor leadership abroad. International competition was in its infancy, performance metrics were unsophisticated, and communication was relatively slow. Mistakes were obscured by cultural and language barriers.
Today, weak overseas managers have no place to hide. Globalisation is transforming markets and industries, and world economies are interconnected as never before.
The authors of Winning with Transglobal Leadership argue that top performance on a global scale requires particular forms of intelligence and a specialised array of behaviours. But because of these recognisable characteristics, savvy managers need not depend on luck or serendipity to find global talent. They can create a pipeline of future leaders by continuously recruiting, training and supporting the best candidates.
