Global leaders and professionals should keep developing differentiated capabilities, integrating existing building blocks into core competencies for solving complex problems and making global impact progressively.
We are at the paradigm shift; transformation occurs at the intersection of art, science, philosophy, and economics. How to connect people’s minds to bridge the world of differences, drive transformative change that all global citizens agree upon?
Innovative and insightful global professionals today have to continue sharing their perspective of future global society: The global environment is dynamic and uncertain, global citizens are experiencing the same world but perhaps perceive it subjectively. Because each one of us has different professional or personal experience, each mindset filters information differently, thinks differently, and learns differently. We should do the best we can in whatever capacity that we are responsible for.
With advancement of information technology, forethoughtful organizations establish a global platform at which people across the boundaries are able to share information, brainstorm solutions to overcome challenges. What are the best and next practices to groom global influencers? Innovative global leaders and visionary globalists with versatile leadership personas are in strong demand to share their perspectives of global society, bridge differences, solve problems at the global scope and co-imagine, co-develop a contemporary global society collaboratively.
It’s possible to set common beliefs and criteria to assess professional quality, credibility, competencies and maturity across the globe: Our co-shared globe is diverse, dynamic, interdependent, there are discrepant criteria on value proposition. All the implicit knowledge of a particular social and cultural environment belongs to common sense. A common sense in a local group is perhaps totally odd in a global environment. The common belief in one community is perhaps very different from the one in another community.
True global leadership roles usually require high level professional competencies such as unbiased understanding, linguistic logic, sound judgment, temperament, cultural empathy, understanding global intellectual/social capital, managing diverse interests, international experiences, technological vision, etc. We are so different, but also similar. It’s important to facilitate enriched conversations for harmonizing the worldwide differences of values, beliefs, philosophies, etc, It is possible to set the common principles to bridge differences, enhance a healthy cycle of diversifying (ideas)-clarifying (concepts) -unifying (beliefs) for building a harmonized global society.
High-influential global leaders are in demand to focus on envisioning, convincing, persuasion, and collaboration at the global scope: It’s critical to develop cultural empathy, accumulate a variety of professional & life experience, develop unique competencies and skills for solving global level problems. Envisioning, communicating, guiding, acting, exemplifying are all the logical steps in building global leadership competency. Many global problems are complex. It’s important to strike the right balance between “local” and “global”; the balance between ‘virtual worlds’ and ‘the human connection’ in terms of culture, communication, and leadership. A leading organization with global innovation competency can handle innovation streams for different goals and time frames, create unique value, and solve global issues creatively.
Influential globalists are excellent in communication, knowledge savvy, globally cognitive, etc. Global leaders demonstrate high integrity, responsibility, and consistency. Some of their credentials are proven experience in executive leadership, entrepreneurship, strategy development, risk and crisis management, global empathy, being able to unify and harmonize by integrating diverse perspectives, and telling a compelling changing story fluently.
The pace of change is increasing, the world becomes flattened, changes or problems usually do not happen in isolation from each other in predictable ways. The diversified global society requires more advanced mindsets and paradigms. Global leaders and professionals should keep developing differentiated capabilities, integrating existing building blocks into core competencies for solving complex problems and making global impact progressively.
