IS GLOBALIZATION BAD?
What say you?


Global business, a 'megatrend', has better enabled development of many diverse people and economies around the world and is resulting in the rise of a global middle class, development of a pool of global talent, and creation of keen awareness of the need to develop a 'global mindset' inside local organisations.

Additional results of global business have been and continues to be a consumer product explosion. It also has resulted in being much more interconnected and with that being more dependent on each other.

Certainly there are imbalances and some things need attention by the 'best and the brightest' in business, academia and government. Ideas include worker retraining and compensation for the displaced by lack of skills, training/development.

Let's find ways to fix things ... let's continue this dialog.

VALIDATING HOW GLOBAL TALENT CONTRIBUTES to PROFITABILITY

Wendy Kendall
Organizational Psychologist
Author - 4th industrial (r)evolution;
Mobility can no longer be a zero-sum game


The fourth industrial revolution is already with us, moving more quickly and with more far-reaching impact than the previous industrial revolutions. The World Economic Forum highlighted in early 2016 the ways in which the Future of Jobs will be affected. However, we need to consider the implications for the future of global talent development in a hyper connected world with a flattened mode of globalisation.

We must dismantle some of our cherished models for supporting global assignments in order to reimagine the role global talent development could play in stimulating innovation, breaking down ‘silos’ and transforming companies from competitive to collaborative Global cultures.

Wendy Kendall is an experienced executive coach and psychologist who has worked with influential leaders in global organisations for the past 20 years.

Her work as a former military psychologist meant she had to help military leaders add value to overseas deployments and deliver results quickly.

There can be strong parallels between military and corporate leaders, particularly in situations where they are under pressure to perform to a high level while transitioning into unfamiliar surroundings.

Wendy’s mission is to continue helping global corporations create a new class of executives with globalised minds that perform at their best, wherever they are located around the world.

Furnished with the latest thinking, these executives create environments where people flourish, gain competitive advantage and deliver a positive return on investment for their employers.
