Failure to Survive
It may be a small world but are we worlds apart? Increasing globalization has created greater complexity for those leading and managing organizations. More accurately, globalization has created an awareness of the complexity that was always there but not recognized. Now, there is no choice. Leaders at all levels of organizations, and especially those at higher levels, must work across national and cultural boundaries to achieve goals and objectives. While corporations have been expanding across international boundaries for some time, the rapid global advance of technology, as well as changes in investment processes and trade relationships, has eliminated previous barriers; thereby, opening markets and necessitating an even greater level of competence. The risk of not possessing the appropriate organizational competence, specifi cally in leadership, is enormous. How big is the problem?Review:
This book is replete with vital information supporting success in both personal growth and business productivity. Naturally, the definition and measurement of " success " itself remains a germinal issue. A reading of Dr. Wibbeke's thoughtful work should stimulate, refl ection on the meaning of " success " at home and in the global marketplace. -- Walter F. Ulmer, Jr., Former President and CEO, Center for Creative Leadership, Former Commandant of Cadets at West Point
Dr. Wibbeke's groundbreaking book on culture and leadership is a must-read for anyone venturing across borders to do business. I recommend it highly! -- John Sperling, Chairman, Apollo Group, Inc. , Founder, University of Phoenix
Marshall Goldsmith, New York Times best-selling author of What Got You Here Won't Get You There, the Longman Award best business book of 2007 -- The leaders of the future cannot just work in their countries; they must work in the world. Dr. Wibbeke shows us how!
One of the pernicious problems of globalization is that leadership exists only in the eyes of the followers - and followers are always local. Dr. Wibbeke undertakes the immensely important task of preparing American businesspersons for their culture shocks in trying to lead abroad. -- Geert Hofstede, Author of "Culture's Consequences"
This book should be read by any person wanting to work skillfully in today's complex global business environment --Robert Moran, Professor of Global Management, Emeritus, American Graduate School of International Management (Thunderbird)
