One thing is very clear to anyone who has done this work. The bigger implications of global leadership lie in the cross-cultural nature of the work. We deal with people who have significantly different filters of the world. Due to the inherent nature of perception, the world that they see has many different aspects.

Cross cultural leadership in today's business world can be challenging at times, with the many cultural gaps that are present. It can be difficult to communicate with another culture, let alone properly lead.

These aspects can be found in the research on high-performing organizations and the research on neuroscience. This research is now becoming clear with regard to how a leader’s engagement style can be quantified through performance measures.

People who are placed in a position of authority over others, in organizations of any kind, have a moral mandate to lead.  This is not an option, rather a deep responsibility.  From the moment a person is placed in this position, people automatically begin looking to them for leadership.

It may be easy for you to lead but only an inspirational leader will help create effective and lasting change.  Leadership and change are tied tightly together, as you rarely lead people to where they already are.  New undertakings and directions are achieved when people see the world in new ways and spend...

There is no denying that we live in a world of constant change.  Leaders within all organizations are tasked with helping their organizations deal with it. While many leaders first look outwards to see what changes are needed, the reality is that organizational change starts with the leaders themselves.


Truly positive transformations within organizations cannot occur until you challenge your current core beliefs and begin to...
