Addressing the Challenges with Global Mindset



Henson proposes a model for gaining a better understanding of global leadership. The model proposes that global leadership has certain antecedents, the most important of which are cultural intelligence (CQ), certain personality traits, cross-cultural contacts and experiences, and self-awareness. These antecedents impact the development of global leadership, which is made up of foundational requirements (organizational and business savvy, results-orientation, and integrity/ethics); global mindset dispositions (flexibility, acceptance, curiosity, and empathy); and competencies (intercultural communication skills, cultural sensitivity, and learning agility). Successful outcomes for global leaders depend on a fit between these components and the context (including organizational, developmental, and situational) in which global leadership is implemented. Outcomes for global leadership include personal, relationship, performance, and organizational. Henson then cautions against the potential perils of authentic leadership when leading cross-culturally.
