9780415921480: Global Explorers: The Next Generation of Leaders

In this age of globalization challenges--from economic uncertainty to emerging markets--there are no mapped out answers for the international manager. Global Explorers guides the global manager from the periphery to the center stage of international business leadership.

In a 1997 survey of Fortune 500 firms conducted by authors J. Stewart Black, Allen J. Morrison and Hal B. Gregersen, virtually all companies indicated there was a severe shortage of global leaders. The demand for competent global leaders far outstrips the supply. Global Explorers provides the skills and outlines the competencies future global managers need to fill the leadership gap. Using extensive research, real-life examples, and 130 in-depth interviews with senior executives representing 50 global companies, including IBM, Disney, Exxon and Sony, Global Explorers suggests the reasons for the global leadership shortage, and identifies the necessary skills to compete in the international marketplace.

For managers who want to safeguard their corporate future in these changing times, Global Explorers will help them develop a personal program for developing and balancing the skills they need to become successful global leaders.

Review:

The book is well grounded in theory, yet practical. Recommended for graduate, research, and professional collections. -- Choice, April 2000
...engaging, meaty book. -- CIO: Chief Information Officer Magazine
Air travel, the Internet, television, education, continuous capital markets, and the movement toward democracy have all converged in the latter half of the twentieth century to create a global leadership. This book blueprints the necessary development processes to make this happen. -- Patrick Canavan, Senior Vice President and Corporate Director, Global Leadership and Organizational Development, Motorola
Global Explorers provides a research based framework for developing the global leader of the future--not a country specialist or old hand but the cross-national manager--and it goes deeply to look at the motivations and values of the successful international executive. -- Jean Broom, Vice President, Estee Lauder International
A practical guide for senior leaders, as well as anyone interested in really being a global leader--and in today's organizations, that's almost everyone. Global Explorers does an excellent job of looking at the true global traits that take us beyond the general leaderships models already out there. -- Lynn Slavenski, Vice President of Education and Organization Development, Equifax Inc. (Equifax is an international consumer and commercial credit information service, and has more than $1.6 Billion in revenue.)
A must-read for anyone who hopes to be a leader in tomorrow's global economy. -- Ralph Christensen, Vice President of Human Resources, Hallmark Cards
Global leaders are in short supply. Gregersen, Black and Morrison explain why this is so, identify the essential traits of global leaders and recommend how companies and individuals can prepare for global leadership roles in the 21st Century. -- John Quelch, Dean, London Business School
No leader anywhere can achieve results without global competencies. Global Explorers offers specific, research based, and practical tools that any global leaders must master. It is not only a must read, but offers a series of must do's for results based, global leaders. -- Dave Ulrich, author of Results Based Leadership
