Developing a global mindset requires leaders to:
Integrate the global component of strategy into their corporate strategy and change thinking patterns and strategies from a single domestic focus to a broad global focus.
Manage uncertainty and fear while constantly adapting to change and accepting it as part of a process. Also, get the right people in place with the skills necessary to focus on international expansion.
Combine the various cultures and values of the corporate work force into a unique global organizational culture.
Invest in your people so they can help you succeed globally. Embrace diversity and differences.
Learn how to cooperate with partners worldwide by successfully managing global teams and alliances. Once the proper leadership focus is in force companies can begin the process of developing a road map to measurable and sustainable growth in the international marketplace.
