  3. 3. THUNDERZONE  VENTURES   social objective______________________________________________________________________________________________________  Executive  Summary.  While  leaders  are  aware  of  the  reality  and  growing  importance  of  globalization,  few  are  “very  prepared”    Globalization   is   real.   Business   over   the   next   3-­‐5   years,   especially   in   the   areas   of   foreign  customers   which   are   expected   to   represent   40.5%   of   revenues,   foreign   suppliers   37.5%,   and  partners  35.2%,  respectively.  Yet  despite  this  anticipated  growth  of  foreign  business,  only  a  third  of  companies  surveyed  feel  “very  prepared.”  As   a   major   force   in   the   global   economy,   you   needs   to   address   the   underlying   leadership  challenges  that  led  to  the  recent  crises    We   attribute   the   recent   financial   crisis   to   greed   along   with   short-­‐term   thinking   and  mismanagement.  We,  executives,  believe  that  the  companies  top  three  underlying  leadership  challenges  are:  1)  Management:  getting  leaders  to  take  responsibility  for  their  actions  and  rebuild  trust  and  credibility;  2)  Structure:  balancing  the  role  of  managment  and  3)  Global  Competition:  preparing  for  a  changing  world  and  understanding  the  global  shift.    In   this   context,   business   leaders   are   struggling   to   address   their   strategic   and   people  priorities  The   top   strategic   priorities   for   companies   over   the   next   3-­‐5   years   are   profitable   growth,  global  expansion,  enhanced  products  &  technology,  and  leadership  &  succession.  Companies  are   currently   attempting   to   address   these   strategic   priorities   by   focusing   on   the   following  three  areas:    Strategic   planning:   Many   leaders   are   focused   on   doing   a   better   job   managing   and   monitoring   progress   against   strategic   objectives   yet   also   recognize   there   are   gaps   between  what  is  being  done  and  what  is  required.    Recruitment,   training,   &   retention   of   the   right   people:   Companies   continue   to   focus   on   hiring   the   “right   people   for   the   right   spots”   and   are   trying   to   identify   leaders  who  understand  how  to  manage  globally.    Marketing   &   business   development:   Leaders   are   constantly   focused   on   driving   revenue   by   developing   sales   teams,   revamping   structures,   and   looking   at   new   customer  bases  especially  globally.  ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________   21  Mikinon  Str  –  4045  Limassol  CY  -­  +357  97  76  78  88  
  4. 4. THUNDERZONE  VENTURES   social objective ______________________________________________________________________________________________________  Many   of   the   strategic   priorities   are   directly   linked   to   the   people   priorities   that   executives  face   including:   finding   the   right   talent,   developing   succession   plans,   leading   the  transformation   of   an   organization   to   be   more   global,   and   simply   keeping   businesses   running  smoothly  during  this  difficult  economy.  Leaders  must  look  beyond  traditional  people  strategies  to  address  new  challenges    Many  executives  are  currently  focused  on  traditional  strategies  for  developing  people  such  as   training   and   development;   increasing   empowerment   and   accountability;   improving  communication;   ensuring   right   systems   and   processes;   and   recruiting   the   right   talent  upfront.  While  these  people  strategies  have  worked  well  in  the  past,  experience  indicate  the  need  for  new  approaches  given  the  current  state  of  globalization  for  many  companies.  A   new   set   of   priorities   emerged,   Executives   should   be   prepared   to   meet   the   top   5   people  strategies   that   they   consider   to   be   “critical   to   success”:   1)   Enhancing   ability   to   adapt   to  change,   2)   Hiring   the   right   managers   and   leaders,   3)   Creating   or   reenergizing   a   culture   of  innovation   and   creativity   within   the   organization,   4)   Developing   leaders,   and   5)   CEO  succession.  Given   new   priorities   that   have   emerged,   leaders   recognize   gaps   between   what   is   needed  and   their   current   strategic   and   people   initiatives.   Significant   changes   such   as   an   increasingly  interconnected  global  economy,  greater  global  competition,  and  the  shift  of  power  require  leaders   and   companies   to   quickly   adapt   to   constant   change.   Leaders   need   to   create   cultures  of  innovation  and  creativity  within  their  organizations  in  order  to  stay  relevant.  A  new  model  of  global  leadership  is  required.  To   address   the   most   critical   gaps   between   current   approaches   and   what   is   actually  required   today,   Thunderzone   Ventures   proposes   a   new   model   of   global   leadership   –   a  model  based  on  “human,”  creative  and  adaptive  leadership   “Human”  leadership  starts  with  getting  back  to  the  basics  of   human   needs,   and   understanding   the   human   motivations   that   impact   organizations.   These   human   needs   should   govern   how  we  hire,  how  we  develop  people  and  how  we  create  the   corporate  culture  we  desire.   “Creative   leadership”   provides   space   for   having   fun,   exploring   new   ideas,   brainstorming,   taking   risks,   and   even   making   mistakes.   Creativity   flourishes   in   environments   that   celebrate   diversity   and   encourage   employees   to   think   freely   and   work   within   their   unique   gifts   and   strengths.   Each   individual  has  creativity  that  is  waiting  to  be  unleashed.   “Adaptable   leadership”   is   about   the   ability   to   adjust   to   constant  change.  Adaptable  companies  are  focused  and  clear   about  how  to  reach  their  goals,  willing  to  take  risks,  respond   quickly  when  things  don’t  go  as  expected,  and  have  effective   systems  in  place  that  allow  them  to  be  fast  and  innovative.       ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________   21  Mikinon  Str  –  4045  Limassol  CY  -­  +357  97  76  78  88
