Growing Global Executives:

The New Competencies
A Vireo Book, Rare Bird Books, October 29, 2015


Growing Global Executives: The New Competencies, by critically-acclaimed author Sylvia Ann Hewlett, and global workplace expert Ripa Rashid, provides a robust leadership template for multinational corporations (MNCs) seeking to globalize their top talent. With global markets shifting to the South and East, multinational companies can no longer afford to depend on ex-pat executives as local proxies.

This new research, based on a 11-country study of highly qualified employees (in Brazil, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey, the US, and the UK.), finds that emerging leaders are in want of two core competencies: the ability to calibrate their leadership presence to project credibility to superiors at headquarters as well as stakeholders worldwide; and the ability to unlock value from globally dispersed and culturally diverse teams through inclusive leadership. These competencies depend, in turn, on mastery of the virtual communication toolkit, in a world where leadership is increasingly exercised remotely; and on leveraging the sponsorship of senior management.

Praise
"Armed with telling data drawn from major developed–as well as developing–markets, the authors ably dissect the nuances of culture, gender, and communication, which together, comprise a delicate balance of superior corporate leadership in the twenty–first century."
Gregory J. Fleming, President, Morgan Stanley Wealth Management and Morgan Stanley Investment Management
