7 TRAITS OF TODAY’S GLOBAL LEADERS
SUCCEEDING IN A GLOBAL CONTEXT WILL REQUIRE COMPANIES TO CULTIVATE A TEAM OF EXECUTIVES WHO HAVE THE CAPABILITIES OF GLOBAL LEADERS. discoveryourtruenorth.org/
YET THE SHORTCOMINGS OF LEADERS— AND THEIR SUBSEQUENT FAILURES— USUALLY RESULT FROM THE LACK OF LEADERSHIP CAPABILITIES WE CALL GLOBAL INTELLIGENCE, OR GQ. discoveryourtruenorth.org/
GQ CONSISTS OF: Adaptability Awareness Curiosity Empathy Alignment Collaboration Integration discoveryourtruenorth.org/
ADAPTABILITY Global leaders must adapt quickly to the rapidly changing global context by shifting resources to opportunity areas and developing contingency plans to cope with adverse geopolitical situations. discoveryourtruenorth.org/
AWARENESS Leaders need to understand the world around them, as well as themselves—their strengths, vulnerabilities, and biases—to perceive how they’ll react to the significant cultural differences they encounter. discoveryourtruenorth.org/
CURIOSITY This includes a personal passion for diverse experiences and an insatiable desire to learn from other cultures. Leaders must recognize that different cultural norms may be superior to their own. discoveryourtruenorth.org/
EMPATHY This requires humility and the capability to engage people from different cultures personally. Empathy builds rapport and bonding and creates lasting relationships. discoveryourtruenorth.org/
ALIGNMENT Global leaders must align employees around the company’s mission and values. This is more difficult in a global context because the business practices and ethics in emerging markets often differ dramatically. discoveryourtruenorth.org/
COLLABORATION Successful geographic collaborations are led by global leaders who know the strengths and weaknesses of regional groups and who make assignments to take advantage of their relative strengths. discoveryourtruenorth.org/
INTEGRATION Incorporating local and global issues into corporate strategy requires understanding of local markets and the global vision to see how companies can serve customers’ needs by leveraging corporate strengths. This optimizes their position in local markets and creates sustainable competitive advantage. discoveryourtruenorth.org/
THE EMERGING GENERATION OF AUTHENTIC GLOBAL LEADERS RECOGNIZES THAT BUSINESSES CAN THRIVE ONLY BY SERVING ALL THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD EQUITABLY WHILE ALSO CONTRIBUTING TO THEIR SOCIETIES. discoveryourtruenorth.org/
