Global Managers, what does it take to succeed?

19 06 2006

The June 5, 2006 issue of the Harvard Business School, Working Knowledge for Business Leaders has a wonderful article by Glenn Rifkin, regarding successful global manager's skills and the problems faced by corporate employees who must work in new cultures.

From my experience working in Latin America and the Asia-Pacific regions, this article is dead-on in terms of identifying the "soft-skills" required for a successful international manager.   I believe that many times these skills and abilities are overlooked, ignored, or minimized when evaluating a candidate for an overseas position.  

If you are working overseas, contemplating it as an option, or the person responsible for hiring international managers, don't miss these ideas.
