Leading from the Edge
Speaker: Annmarie Neal and Wei Wang
The world's business environment continues to be marked by turbulence, complexity, ambiguity, and relentless speed. Never before has the world been so flat, so networked, so interdependent, and so transparent. The rules of the global game are fundamentally different as new competitors from developing economies emerge and challenge traditional business models. The rules for leaders are now fundamentally different.
Based on the recent ASTD Press title, Leading From the Edge: Global Executives Share Strategies for Success, the presenter will discuss the 10 essential traits of global leaders that emerged from a multi-year field study on global leadership—and specifically on those traits that truly differentiate in an innovation economy. Company and executive stories will be shared to illustrate these traits in action.
