Hello and Welcome to what I want to call, HOUSTON GLOBAL. This is about the world we will be living in: frontier markets; the 'hi po' countries and regions; and the more mature, developed markets.

Now in these good times is the time to 'save for a rainy day' and we need to build a reserve of money and energy storage, to be prepared for difficulties and also, to help others in need. I like this quote: "In the interconnected economy jobs will flow to the nations with the best training and education", said Larry Fink, Chairman & CEO, BlackRock.

Now I invite you to get ready by participating in the GlobalBusinessNews "GoingGlobalLessonsLearned" research survey... CLICK .

Today is all about America's dynamic economic growth, about people management, and the company policies and practices and further developing a 'global mindset' because doing it will help the US, help Houston and Texas, and help your own business develop in new ways for the world we will be living in.

Looking back to 'last century' in the early '90s, we produced the 1st-ever edition for Houston and it focused on clear, operational tactics connected with managing employee relocation into Houston. But today, while never forgetting our roots and a still-important need to attract and develop leadership based in Houston, the unquestioned global business capital for energy, today's focus will be 'global mindset' and what it takes to grow new opportunity, in-bound, out-bound and cross-border. Focus will be about CEO objectives... Acquiring and developing the best talent for the appropriate positions and right locations, right time, right price…for the world we will be living in: frontier markets - developing markets - developed markets™.

Today's 'new world' provides new challenges and new talent eager for learning and development.

What's your strategy for developing young leadership in Houston?

What's your strategy for growing market-share across borders?

What new techniques and technology are you developing for enhancing customer services and talent engagement?


Drilling-down, today is about YOUR "take-aways" and implementing the new knowledge. As conference developer and moderator, know that I want to help you build and apply the new skill-sets. Come, participate in the conversations and you will take-away new knowledge, new contacts, and new opportunity. Today will help you achieve deeper understandings and provide you with a pathway for opportunity. Enjoy and thrive ! CHEERS.

Any questions or suggestions?

EXPAT SUPPORT
New views, New practices

A Positive Approach to Expatriate and Family

by
Ken Burgess, M.Ed., LPC
Global Human Performance,
a division of Leidos Health - Houston

Today, almost every organization, large or small, is affected by global events and competition. Many US companies now sell their products abroad and often, the products they sell are manufactured and/or assembled offshore. We're all competing in some way against products and services from international competitors.

As a result, many of us have employees either traveling to or living/working in foreign countries. Global success requires us to develop and maintain highly competent and well prepared employees. This is particularly important with regard to expatriates. International assignments are challenging for employees and families. From the literature we learn that failure rates are often high and costly to the employee in terms of family, relationships and career, and to companies in terms of financial losses and personnel.

Most, if not almost all organizations now providing in-country support for their expatriates and families do so through their existing internal or external (contract) Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Your presenter will discuss this service model and its vulnerabilities, and provide insight into just why the EAP approach may not be your best decision with respect to your organization's safety, profitability, and performance objectives. You will also learn about a positive alternative and the success a "wellness" vs. "pathology" focus helps to assure.
