Synopsis

"An inspirational and empowering guide for emerging leaders, global companies and executive coaches."-The Globe

As the world becomes more connected and differences as well as similarities multiply, current and emerging leaders need extraordinary agility and leadership skills to thrive in the midst of complexity and change.

In The Age of Pluralism: Global Intelligence for Emerging Leaders, David Clive Price – a leading expert on Global Leadership – delivers a clarion call for pluralism in an age of increasing tribal and nationalist defensiveness and xenophobia. To reflect and drive this multicultural and interconnected world, the upcoming leaders of the future need a leadership toolkit – for increasing teamwork and innovation, and for leveraging diversity of generations, backgrounds and cultures.

David reveals that in order to thrive in the new global digital order, where we are only a click away from the rest of the world, we don’t need to learn hundreds of different cultures.

Our connectivity is making us more ready to empathize, explore and relate to ‘others’. The highway to success is to draw out and exercise those strengths of leadership agility that are already latent or partially active within us. Those strengths will be increasingly in demand as the Age of Pluralism gathers pace on the back of rapid technological change, the rise of the emerging economies, demand for global talent, and shifting patterns of migration.

David has helped executives, emerging leaders, managers and their teams work better together, build relationships, network, negotiate, manage and more in diverse workplaces and markets across our globalized world. In his coaching, writing and speaking, he has evolved a model – The Bamboo Strong CQ Model™ – based on scholarly research in 72 countries.

The Bamboo Strong™ model has led David to conclude that a global mindset is a ‘muscle of the mind’. It strengthens the more we exercise it and it leads inevitably to success in today’s global economy.

David has used the Bamboo Strong CQ Model™, along with world-leading tools such as the Intercultural DISC™ assessment, to help leading companies and Fortune 500s achieve outstanding results by strengthening the pipeline of next generation leaders.

Outline

This book is structured on a clear and actionable process to help you become stronger leaders in today’s multidimensional business world. It’s not an academic or how-to primer, even if it proposes proven scientific models that can help you on your way. Above all, the book speaks personally and directly from the author’s own experience in many countries and in many different work and life situations around the world.

Audience

This book is for emerging and high potential leaders, and executive coaches.

Leadership capacity and development has always been a key concern for executives and senior HR professionals. This concern has been heightened recently by increasing globalization and business complexity as well as the impending retirement of vast numbers of seasoned leaders.

At a time when organizations need more leaders—and more experienced leaders—organizations are facing the single largest departure of leaders in modern history. This leadership gap has led an increasing number of organizations to place renewed emphasis on the development and acquisition of emerging leaders—particularly members of Generation X and Millennials.

Leadership development has been slow to catch up. According to a recent study, only 52 percent of Millennials feel prepared to take on their new roles. Given that frontline leaders play such a crucial part in the near-term implementation and execution of business strategy, these gaps will have serious negative impacts on long-term growth.

Millennials aged 18-34 are estimated to number some 78 million in America alone. The global population of emerging leaders is exponentially greater, and is now ready to reshape the world’s economy. Research shows that 40% of Millennials believe they are capable of having a global impact in some way.

So what is being done to equip them?

Clearly, many organizations use executive coaching to address leadership challenges. Executive coaching is a $1.5 billion per year industry, with most of the biggest enterprises now using coaches.

The numbers continue to increase. Industry surveys suggest there are 25,000 + business coaches in Europe, which comprises about 40 per cent of all business coaches in the world (estimated at 150,000+)

However, while executive coaching is top-of-mind for executives and HR, research shows that only 35% of the organizations used executive coaching for their emerging leaders.

By contrast, 48% of the organizations used executive coaching for VP level and senior executives, while 65% of the organizations surveyed did not cite executive coaching as an important developmental strategy for their high-potential pipeline.

This represents a significant opportunity for organizations and coaches – especially in light of what different generations expect from their employers.

Generation X employees want a casual, independent, flexible environment, and a place to learn; Generation Y employees want a structured, supportive, and interactive environment. Both want continuous growth and “connectedness” with people – including people they interact with throughout the world.

That is the audience for this book.

The Transformation to Effective Global Leadership: The impact of cross-cultural behavior and motivation on Global Leadership practices and approaches

By Dr. José Annibal Torres

Published by DrTangLv; 1 edition (2016)

As the world becomes more and more independent and interrelated, the need to understand how to transform an effective leader to an effective global leader is now more important than ever. The researcher argues that leaders and followers must develop a mutual trust, and mutual respect. Further, mutual trust and respect require effective communication. And communication differs from culture to culture. Equally important, is the approach to conflict management, which differs from culture to culture. Additionally, integrity and honesty is viewed differently in different cultures. To this end, this book highlights the elements required to transform an effective domestic leader to an effective global leader. It further posits that cross-cultural, and country-specific cultural training is required prior to any international assignment. This book also highlights how different leaders have been unprepared when accepting a foreign assignment; and the leadership qualities that are preferred.

Global Leadership: The Next Generation

By Marshall Goldsmith Ph.D. and Cathy Greenberg

Published by Pearson FT Press; 1 edition (May 8, 2003)

The follow-up to Marshall Goldsmith's 500,000-copy bestseller "The Leader of the Future, " "Global Leadership: The Next Generation" systematically identifies what tomorrow's leaders will need to know, do and believe in order to successfully lead the global enterprise of the future.

Drawing on the results of an extraordinary 2-year Accenture study of emerging business leaders, this book shows why the skills of today's global leaders won't be enough--and why tomorrow's leaders won't resemble today's. Goldsmith and his co-authors first identify five new "factors of leadership" and their implications: global thinking, appreciation of diversity, technological savvy, a willingness to partner and an openness to sharing leadership. They explain what it will mean to lead in an era where intellectual capital is the dominant source of value; how to lead people whose backgrounds and values may be radically dissimilar from yours; and why achieving personal self-mastery is now a fundamental prerequisite for leading others.

Leading with Cultural Intelligence: The Real Secret to Success

By David Livermore Ph.D. and Soon Ang Ph.D.

AMACOM; 2 edition (April 8, 2015)

Business today is global—and success requires a new set of skills. But not to worry, whether you're negotiating with vendors in Asia, exploring potential markets in Africa, or leading a diverse team at home, you don't have to master the nuances of every culture you encounter. With Cultural Intelligence, or CQ, you can lead effectively in any context.

Featuring fresh research, case studies, and statistics on the ROI of improving your CQ, this new edition of Leading with Cultural Intelligence details a powerful, four-step model for becoming more adept at managing across cultures.

Culture Clash 2: Managing the Global High Performance Team (Global Leader Series)

By Thomas D. Zweifel

SelectBooks; 1 edition (July 16, 2013)

Sweden's Electrolux wondered why its vacuum cleaners did not sell in the United States. When someone realized its slogan "Nothing sucks like Electrolux" did not sell, it was too late...Don't know how to enter a strategic market? Can't get global alliances aligned? Flying blind in international meetings? Facing cross-border conflicts? Lost in translation?

Few are prepared for managing across cultures, and blind spots can be costly--from lawsuits to lost opportunities. Forged in the fire of clashing cultures and living on four continents, Dr. Zweifel, former CEO, Columbia professor and award-winning author of bestsellers like Strategy-In-Action and The Rabbi and the CEO, unpacks the toolbox he developed over three decades of helping managers in 100+ countries produce breakthroughs --a fool-proof system for success across borders. And post-9/11, BRICS and e-commerce have made this expanded edition of Culture Clash indispensable.

INTRODUCTION

We are living in an extraordinary age in which pluralism has become a major part of our lives, and is set to become an even greater force for change and human development in the decades to come. Under the impact of technological advances, super connectivity, mobility of talent, changing migration patterns, and the sheer diversity of our global knowledge and experiences, the peoples of the world have become more plural than ever before in human history.

            Pluralism means that our backgrounds - especially those of our young people - are far more heterogeneous than might have been expected from previous categorisations by nationality, culture, race or religion.  This is not simply multiculturalism as defined by the ‘identity and values’ versus ‘globalisation and elites’ movements of our times. Pluralism is not a movement. It is a fact of life - and it is the future.

            As people travel more from their home of origin, intermarry more, study in more regions of their own country or in foreign countries, work in more far-flung international and virtual teams, connect with other cultures and cities, and experiment with lifestyles and viewpoints they would never have attempted before, they are coming to regard their ability to be plural or hybrid as a thrilling adventure, a lifetime’s calling.

            However, there are counter-currents and obstacles along the way. Every revolution produces a counter-revolution. According to many commentators and politicians, this is what we are experiencing now.

            We are living in an era of populism - at least in the politics of the West. There is no shortage of tub-thumpers and demagogues warning us of the dangers of globalisation, of the people and communities that have been left behind, of the threats of multiculturalism and unchecked immigration to fragmenting societies. The emphasis of populism and nativism is on barriers, not bridges; on protecting national identity and values; on defending the monoculture from immigrant invasion. Populists move quickly from inciting fears over cultural disintegration to complaining bitterly about diversity and liberalism, as if these drivers of world progress could somehow be put back into the bottle. But in fact the genie has long escaped from the bottle.

            The old assumptions about ‘pure’ monocultures are fast becoming defunct. Not only is it impossible to consider people as simply representatives of their culture, the once governing cultures are themselves becoming fragmented, kaleidoscopic, intermingled and thrillingly complex. The hectic pace of technological change is driving this diversity. Soon there will be four billion Internet users in the world, and more of them will be speaking Chinese than English.

            It’s the same story in the United States, with the number of Spanish speakers (and voters) rapidly growing. Spanish is the second most dominant language in the country after English. It is spoken by almost 50 million people, and census data suggest that by 2060 the Latino population – the group most likely to speak Spanish – will grow some 115 per sent to 119 million.  The Hispanic population in the United States is already the fifth largest in the world. There are similarly diverse populations in Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, France, Germany and the United Kingdom, to name just a few countries. Indeed, defining a country by a single culture or even a predominant culture is fast becoming obsolete. The supposedly monolithic India has more than 100 spoken languages and more than 200 mother tongues. Indonesia, with the world’s fourth largest population, has more than 700 different languages.

            However, it’s not only racial and linguistic diversity that is a fact of life. It’s the diversity of generations, genders, ethnicities, cultures, educational levels, and above all generations, in our interconnected societies and businesses. Senior executives and CEOs at multinational companies are increasingly diverse, and they come from backgrounds that are neither exclusively white nor exclusively male. Similarly, the experience of millennials and of generation X is almost entirely hybrid, made up of crosscutting cultural dynamics that have influenced them ever since they were born. These dynamics fuel a much greater need to be involved in the world and make a global impact than ever before.

            Such are the visions driving the emerging leaders of the future, the high potentials who are seeking to gain more influence in their organisations and who are ready to step up to assume greater responsibility as the traditional concept of the hierarchical organisation breaks down. Many are being relocated or are already living and working in the dynamic emerging economies, such as those of Africa, Asia, South America and the Middle East.

            These emerging leaders are increasingly well travelled, knowledge- and information-rich, high tech and social media savvy, used to disruptive innovations, cosmopolitan in tastes and outlook, and able to thrive in new cultural situations.

            But there is one area of the modern world where they are still lacking - leadership. In order to truly flourish as leaders of the future, these younger generation entrepreneurs and executives need more than an ability to succeed in new environments. To be strong and responsive leaders of diverse teams, cultural agility is no longer enough. Leaders must also identify their inner weaknesses and ignite their inner strengths. They must leverage personal as well as cultural differences to gain trust and build collaborative relationships in their home workplace, across borders and globally. In order to influence character, they must know their own character.  All the more surprising, therefore, that so little is being done to develop these traits.  

According to the Global Leadership Forecast, a survey of a thousand C-level executives worldwide[1], only 14 per cent of CEOs believe they have the leadership talent to execute their upcoming strategy. Among the Top Ten challenges listed, 64 per cent of C-Level executives identified the development of Next Generation leaders, 60 per cent indicated a failure to attract or retain top talent, and 48 per cent pointed to new global competitors. A stunning 78 per cent of Human Resources professionals considered their organization’s leadership planning systems to be only moderately effective or worse.

So at a time when organizations need more leaders - caused by the single largest departure of leaders in modern history - organizations are facing a shortfall in planning and leadership experience.

Recent research shows that only 52 per cent of millennials feel prepared to take on their new roles. Given that frontline leaders play such a crucial part in the near-term implementation and execution of business strategy. These gaps can only have serious negative impacts on long-term growth. Millennials aged 18-34 are estimated to number some 78 million in America alone. The global population of emerging leaders is exponentially greater, and is now ready to reshape the world’s economy. So what is being done to equip them?

Many organizations use executive coaching to address leadership challenges. Executive coaching is a $1.5 billion per year industry, with most of the biggest enterprises now using coaches. The numbers continue to increase. Industry surveys suggest there are 25,000 + business coaches in Europe, which comprises about 40 per cent of all business coaches in the world (estimated at 150,000+).

However, while executive coaching is top-of-mind for executives and Human Resources, further research shows that only 35 per cent of global organizations used executive coaching for their emerging leaders[2]. By contrast, 48 per cent of the organizations use executive coaching for VP level and senior executives, while 65 per cent of the organizations surveyed do not consider executive coaching an important developmental strategy for their high-potential pipeline. This shortfall represents a significant opportunity for organizations and coaches - especially in light of what different generations expect from their employers.

In many studies, Generation X employees reveal they want a casual, independent, flexible environment, and a place to learn; Generation Y employees want a structured, supportive, and interactive environment. Both want continuous growth and ‘connectedness’ with people - including people they interact with throughout the world.

In the following chapters, I offer a clear and actionable process to help create stronger leaders for today’s multi-dimensional and multi-polar business world. My intention is to speak personally and directly from my own experiences and those of my clients, colleagues, and partners in many different work and life situations around the world.

            In Part One, I guide you through the challenges to global leadership presented by populist, nativist and tribalist movements in many countries. I also look at the false dichotomy between diversity and opposition to immigration. In Part Two, I provide three specific tools for global leadership: the Bamboo Strong™ CQ Model for developing cultural intelligence; the Intercultural DISC™ assessment for leveraging personal and cultural differences; and Intelligent Leadership™, an immersive leadership development experience founded by world-leading executive coach John Mattone.

            In Part Three, I explore the importance of ‘connectedness’ and moving beyond diversity into the future – one that is already upon us and all around us. Throughout this book, I offer unique solutions for developing current and emerging global leaders while showing you the skill sets and coaching solutions you need to collaborate with people of different personalities, gender, backgrounds, generations and cultures. To this end, in the Postscript I include a number of action steps, bootcamps, resoruces and checklists to create your own strategy for becoming Intelligent Global Leaders.

            Please let me know about your global leadership experiences. You can connect with me by registering for the Age of Pluralism Planner and by joining my email subscriber list.
