What Makes for Global Leaders

This presentation includes an exploration of leaders and their positive behaviours. The slides are from the CRF event, Talent on the Move: Time for a Rethink?, which took place in Munich.

Sebastian Reiche summarises the key traits a good leader should adopt, including:

  • Awareness – of both cultural differences and self-awareness
  • Empathy and Shared Identity
  • Humility

Sebastian Reiche’s presentation also includes some of the traits and tendencies that can block effective global leadership, such as stereotyping and a lack of awareness about cultural differences in relation to work and non-verbal communications. This presentation provides compelling research results and practical advice for those involved with global leadership or in developing new global leaders.

Professor Sebastian Reiche is Chair of the Department of Managing People in Organizations, IESE Business School. Sebastian Reiche’s areas of research and interest include global mobility, developing and retaining talent, knowledge transfer, global leadership, cross-cultural management and trust and social capital.

CRFCast - Leadership in the Age of Expertise with Wanda Wallace

One of the toughest transitions for leaders is progressing from a role where your value is largely driven by expertise, into a broader spanning role, which demands a different set of skills, relationships and a change in mindset about the value you add as a leader. In conversation with Wanda Wallace, author of You Can’t Know It All: Leading in the Age of Deep Expertise, we discuss how leaders can anticipate and prepare for the transitions required, and practical advice on what this means for leadership models and strategies for leadership development in our organisations.
