What does it take to be a global leader?


What does it take to be a global leader?

Tasked with identifying and developing talent for global assignments?

Have you recently been assigned to lead a global team?

Is your company in the midst of a global expansion?

  A couple of months ago, I was asked to coach a senior global leader, on an expat assignment in the US who was very successful in his country but could not replicate his success here in the US. Having a global assignment and being successful in your country does not guarantee success in a global role.   Join us at 20th Annual The Leadership Conference of The Conference Board, on June 3-5 in San Diego, CA.  The pre conference on Succession Planning will help you  to deepen your own global acumen, learn the key leadership behaviors of successful global leaders and walk away with succession planning tools. 1. Uncertainty Resilience – someone who comfortably adjusts to changes and complexities. 2. Team Connectivity – someone who integrates and connects ideas and people across boundaries. 3. Flexibility – ability to adjust their style in a practical way considering local and global norms. 4. Responsiveness – use customize and appropriate ways to address, motivate, inspire others 5. Talent Orientation – personally involved in the customized development of their own people. It is no surprise that building teams and connecting people while taking into consideration the uncertain and constantly changing global environment are critical leadership qualities of a successful global leader. Find out how prepared you are to take on a global assignment or lead others to succeed in global roles.

Are your team members working effectively together?

team conflictEver wondered how your team is getting along?  Or perhaps you know where the pockets of conflict exist but are unsure how to resolve it?  Ever wondered if your team members are aware of the impact of their unresolved conflict?  Are they in denial about their conflict? Or perhaps it is you who is in denial?  You just don’t want to deal with it, it is draining and a waste of your time.  You know that each individual working their hardest is not going to enable you to achieve your goals.  You need to find a way for the team to work well together. Only as a team, can you achieve your results.


Sociomapping® is a way to safely bring up these issues within the team.  Through the expertise of a trained coach, you can build trust and begin to openly work towards resolving issues within your team.  Sociomap is a graphical representation, a picture, of how your team views their own effectiveness or lack of cooperation.  To track your improvement, you can take this picture every six to twelve months.  This tool is for leaders who value the importance of team members working cooperatively to achieve the team goals.  This is for leaders who believe in the synergistic value of teams and the importance of an open dialogue.


At the Empowering Teams Conference 2013 in Prague last November, we celebrated the twentieth anniversary of this powerful tool that has helped hundreds of organizations and teams perform at their peak in the most high pressure conditions like space projects, in the army or in high growth tech companies.  To learn more about how you can take your team performance to the maximum level contact me at liza@executivehrcoach.com or learn more about Sociomapping® at www.sociomap.com
