Bridging the Global Leadership Gap
New book edited by IESE Dean Jordi Canals
Globalization is changing the corporate context and the corporate imperative. This has given rise to new and complex challenges for business leaders. Developing leaders with the capabilities to navigate the complex challenges of globalization has become an urgent issue for business schools and corporations alike.
In Leadership Development in a Global World: The Role of Companies and Business Schools, IESE Dean Jordi Canals, along with deans and professors from other top business schools around the world, outlines ways to bring leadership development up to speed with the demands of this new era.
If the 20th century was "the American Century," then the 21st will be "the Global Century," marked by the increasing influence of high-growth economies such as China, India and Brazil, says Nitin Nohria, the dean of Harvard Business School.
New growth markets like these urgently need to develop their local talent with a global mind-set. Moreover, they need to develop global leaders who are capable of managing across cultures and complex and uncertain environments, adds Prof. Canals.
