[We’re pleased to welcome Rosalie L. Tung, author of Journal of Leadership and Organizational Studies‘ Distinguished Scholar Invited Essay entitled “Requisites to and Ways of Developing a Global Mind-Set: Implications for Research on Leadership and Organizations.”]

Leaders and professionals are agreed that the development of a global mindset is imperative to success in coping with the challenges and taking advantage of the opportunities associated with the growingJLOS_72ppiRGB_powerpoint interconnectedness of the world’s economies. This paper uses an evidence-based approach to identify the requisites for nurturing a global mindset and discusses the training programs that can facilitate this development.

The abstract:

To respond effectively to changes in the calculus of global competition—the rise of emerging market multinationals and the crisis of confidence in industrialized countries—leaders and organizations need to develop a global mind-set. This article identifies four requisites to the development of a global mind-set and three ways for developing this orientation. The implications for leadership and organizations are then discussed.
