    Leading the international operations of worldwide firms or headi

    Leading the international operations of worldwide firms or heading a globally dispersed team can be a baffling undertaking. Approaches that work in one country or culture may not work in another, and executives often must overcome tremendous gaps between themselves and the foreign staff they manage. To find out how global team leaders succeed, leadership consultants Ernest Gundling, Karen Cvitkovich, and banker Terry Hogan interviewed 70 executives from 26 countries and from more than a dozen industries, including manufacturing, energy, telecommunications and health care. The authors found that these seasoned leaders share 10 distinctive behaviors, which constitute the basis of this global leadership development plan. getAbstract recommends their comprehensive research and training tactics to HR and leadership development specialists, and to executives who manage global teams or international divisions.
