Globalization is a huge wave that has shaped the world’s economy for the last 15 years. It established a new ground for companies and changed the game rules. After a while people were talking about Globalization as a way to recognize the unique importance of local knowledge and experience amid the impact of companies with “global” operations.
So now we are at a point where ” More and more people worldwide are living in countries not considered their own” as global author, Pico Iyer mentions at “Where is home” ,Ted conference.
There are companies intentionally relocating their employees looking for the added value that their experiences abroad can bring to day to day operations and problem solving.
We could now rename the process to Gloxal, Global + local + complex.
Nowadays leaders need to understand and manage complexity, they need to understand unclear situations and make sense of them whilst leading their teams.
In order to perform upon arrival, these leaders require a set of tools and mindset that can help them feel at home and comfortable in the shortest time possible.
At City Compass we provide trainings that work and explain these tools and skills, we speed up the process of “Feeling at home”, while living internationally.
