Leading with effectiveness and competence
Good leadership is about building trust to get the team engaged. In an intercultural environment, it is important to be able to understand different hierarchy systems, expectations on leaders, gender relations or ways of direct or indirect communication, to just to name a few areas. To achieve effectiveness, global leadership requires three components: cultural knowledge, communication skills, and an openness to new experiences.
And global leadership requires strong self-awareness. It might sound surprising, but leaders who are well rooted in their own culture tend to have fewer cognitive biases and find it easier to understand and interpret foreign expectations, what helps in turn to avoid costly mistakes.
