When multinational companies recruit across geographies, the “one-size-fits-all” approach can seem quite appealing. However, real and quantifiable differences exist across culturally-rooted management styles and ignoring these differences can negatively affect your organization. This session examines the alternative ways leadership is implicitly understood across countries. Examples and data that demonstrate strategies to effectively recruit in a cross-cultural environment when local leadership expectations are not intrinsically aligned will be discussed. After this session you will be able to:

  • Address common cross cultural challenges in applying metrics during for identification.
  • Have informed discussions about multinational talent management programs.
  • Provide insights to specific leadership prototypes from across the world.
