  • Talking Points: Based on the White Paper, talk briefly about the impact of globalization, technological advancements, and societal changes on organizations and leadership skills. Use one example each. Elaborate on AIM’s research process and briefly mention the survey (as it will be discussed in more details later) Explain how the Seven Dimensions of GlobaLeadership model was born Briefly describe what the GL Suite is (elevator speech)
  • Talk about the issues Global Leaders considered to be key in their business environment. Mention how these issues are unique to the new market place, tied in with globalization, societal changes, and technological advancements.
  • Introduce the Model by briefly explaining what each dimension is. Or, you can talk about them in the next slide.
  • If you’ve talked about the dimensions in the previous slide, simply ask the client to read this later on. If you use this slide to talk about the dimension, here is another way to describe the dimension (to avoid reading the slide): Vista: Foresees future landscape – Sees beyond the horizon and explores the unfamiliar, while staying grounded in the present day. Innova: Ideates to innovate – Taps into team members’ creativity to consistently seek new ways to achieve competitive advantage. Adapta: Masters multiple forces – Integrates disparate changing forces to achieve business results. Diversa: Leverage differences – Attuned to people’s unique cultures and bring them together to achieve synergy. Communi: Keeps the dialogue going – Ensures external and internal stakeholders are engaged and understand each other’s concerns. Collabo: Moves from “me” to “we” – Builds and nurtures collaborative relationships in a complex, global environment. Edu: Develops next generation leaders – Identifies, cultivates, matches, and transfers talent across the organization.
  • Briefly talk about the components of GL: Assessment: Self, 360, Team Development guides Training Modules and facilitation Individual coaching All assessments are meant to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a leader or a team in terms of GlobaLeadership
  • Mention that the products target senior management and executive who deal with global challenges everyday and have direct reports / team members globally. For mid-level managers with future global responsibilities, this tool could be used to assess their readiness for global responsibilities.
  • This is more of a “read-it” slide Maybe mention example of what Philips achieved at the end of the consultation.
  • This is also more of a “read-it” slide Maybe mention some examples
  • For each process - “Assess”, “Analyze”, “Develop” – talk about what we will do and which tools will go along with the process.
  • This is also more of a “read-it” slide
