Give Managers With Global Mindset An Incentive To Stay
Scientific self-assessment measures an individual's global mindset and identifies areas that need improvement. A 360-degree version of the instrument, which combines self-assessment with peer assessment, also can alert global companies about the need to stimulate and challenge managers with high levels of global mindset. People in this category would include Gerald Schafer, one of the global leaders that the author encountered during his research. Schafer is a Swiss national who has never really lived in Switzerland. The author says people like Schafer are rare. Most people grow up in one culture with one national identity, one religious identity and one ethnic identity. The author says this is why companies need to cling to their global talent once they find these people.
