How Global Leaders Think: Development Strategies From New Research
Speaker: Ann Herrmann-Nehdi
In a complex world, being a leader is about more than just what you think; it's about how you think. A new comprehensive study into the thinking preferences and work elements of CEOs working around the globe reveals a number of trends about the thought processes of global leaders that you can use to inform your own development strategies. This session will take you inside the data and show you how to apply the findings and build your leaders' thinking flexibility. You'll discover the thinking-style trends that emerged and how these patterns compare to the original study conducted 20 years ago. Find out what surprised us, how changing business realities are affecting today's leaders, and why there is a new urgency for training professionals to develop the thinking agility of their global leaders. You'll leave with a clear understanding of the common thinking and work preferences of global leaders, as well as an action plan for aligning your development strategies with the mental demands required to lead in a world of globalization, complexity, and change.
