A separate, but inter-related key to success lies within YOU. In today’s complex global business environment, as a leader you are the driving force and the magnet that draws people in – someone who has the ability to lead, connect, and (most importantly) to ignite a fire within the global workforce that will result in invaluable contributions that will drive personal development and organizational success to levels never anticipated or previously dreamed of. You are a key resource to the organization, and as such, you need to understand that how you allow yourself to be leveraged as a resource directly correlates with the success of your global teams and organization.
How people perceive you, your words and actions, will define you across the globe. How you relate to people, from all cultures, will determine to a large extent, your ability to succeed. Do people from all cultures and geographies see you as an inspiration? Someone to follow, someone to believe in, someone to trust? Are you a partner? Does your global team perceive that they are a critical component to your vision and direction? Our research tells us over and over again, that people follow those they trust and those they are inspired by.
