Overview

Business leaders in today’s borderless global marketplace face unprecedented challenges. The emergence of the knowledge economy has demanded that business leaders become global leaders. Successful global leaders are those with strategies for guiding and empowering a diversified workforce operating in different countries, cultures, and time zones so that they can maximize the return from trading in a worldwide market with distinct local needs.

Leadership Without Borders poses the question: What advice do successful global leaders have for future and current global leaders? Part 1 distills the practical insights provided by a large number of global business leaders into five key areas:

  • The personal characteristics required to ensure success as a global leader
  • The business acumen needed to thrive as a global leader
  • Methods for expanding global awareness – or “worldview”
  • The people leadership skills and attributes needed to succeed in any environment
  • Business leadership skills and attributes that will enhance global leadership ability

The reader will find in this first part of the book practical suggestions for ensuring that their own personal characteristics, business acumen, worldview, people leadership skills, and business leadership skills set them apart from others and equip them for leadership in the new borderless marketplace. Each chapter ends with a summary of the global leadership viewpoints presented, to assist you in building your own checklist of global leadership knowledge, skills, and behaviors that you can start to use right away.

Part 2 then explores in detail successful strategies carried out by the exceptional global leaders of eight world-class organizations:

  • Booz Allen Hamilton, USA
  • Change Leaders, Worldwide
  • Horasis, Switzerland
  • Nike, Europe
  • Satyam Computer Services, India
  • Standard Chartered Bank, Singapore
  • Universitas 21 Global, Singapore
  • Vodafone, Spain


Leadership Without Borders
goes beyond theories of management to provide a solid foundation of practical and detailed guidelines and insights from those leaders who are already at the cutting edge in today’s borderless business environment.

I just finished reading Leadership Without Borders and found it to be a great guide for learning about how leaders around the world are managing to be successful across cultures and business norms. The insights from successful leaders has motivated me to want to learn and experience more about global leadership. I especially liked reading about the experiences of the CxO's and companies featured in the second part of the book. Ed Cohen has brought together a great team of contributors and articulates the factors for success for global leaders clearly, concisely and in a very enjoyable manner.
