Rebekah Kowalski, VP and Principal Consultant for Strategic Workforce Consulting at Right Management, a ManpowerGroup Company discusses globalization and company culture. She argues that companies branching out from domestic to global need to act, think and lead differently. In order to be reflective of the consumer you are serving, there needs to be a balance of bringing the company’s culture to the country, but also blending the country’s values into the company culture.
She explains that globalism is something that is led. Global leaders need to be able to build networks, build virtual trust, be highly collaborative, highly relational and very respectful of different cultures.
