Operating and expanding business units offshore, selling in foreign markets and managing global supply chains are just three of the many challenges that emphasize the importance of leaders that can transcend borders. Winning with Transglobal Leadership will help prepare your organization to meet this need head-on with a framework for developing and training leaders that best fit your global growth strategies. The book combines insights from a global team of author-experts. Together, they draw on an impressive range of resources—extensive original research, interviews with world-class high-performing executives, and decades of combined experience as senior executives, researchers, and consultants—to deliver an easily implemented process for assessing your organization’s global capability and developing the leaders who will drive success. Inside Winning with Transglobal Leadership, you will find:

  • Guidance on measuring and evaluating your organization’s capacity to compete globally
  • Five behavioral dimensions that global leaders need to develop

For leaders and managers, HR and training specialists, or anybody doing business today, Winning with Transglobal Leadership is the definitive handbook on satisfying the demand for specialized leadership skills—now and in the years to come.

Optimizing Talent

The vast majority of organizations are searching for the magic "bullet" to improve talent.  Research and experience drawn from extensive work with Fortune 500 companies have led Dr. Linda D. Sharkey and co-author Dr. Paul H. Eccher to the conclusion that most organizations still come up dry in their attempts to develop a sustainable system -- let alone one that allows for talent practices to be as well articulated and clear as most other operating mechanisms within companies.

This book provides an integrated framework for diagnosing talent optimization gaps and is a call to action for leaders at all levels  of the organization to make talent optimization a top priority every day.  Business leaders, managers, HR and Talent practitioners will learn to think strategically about people through insights into:

  • Actions that allow sustainable business results to be garnered from improved talent management systems
  • A Talent Optimization Framework (TOF) enabling an integrated approach to talent management and human capital
  • Tools and strategies proven to enhance performance, reduce costs and align processes
  • The connection between a good talent system and a company's bottom line
