Review

a beautifully researched and written gem....belongs on the desktop of any leader whose firm has aspirations of global reach -- Training Magazine, July 2002

From the Back Cover

"A must-read for anyone responsible for selecting and developing executives who operate in a boundaryless business world. This book encourages executives to shed existing cultural paradigms, learn what it takes to be an effective global leader, and gain a better return on their company's human capital investments."

-Mirian Graddick-Weir, Executive Vice President, Human Resources, AT&T

"Developing Global Executives vividly lays out the opportunities, pitfalls, and 'lessons learned' from the corporate equivalents of Marco Polo. An indispensable guidebook for global corporations and anyone wishing for a global leadership career. A wonderful book!"

-Jay A. Conger, Author, Building Leaders

"The authors of this fine book on executive development are skilled psychologists, experienced travelers, excellent writers, and keen listeners and observers. Based on their extensive travel and research, Developing Global Executives offers an effective mix of both conceptual and practical ideas. An excellent book for anyone grappling with the development of executive talent in the 21st century."

-David Campbell, Ph.D., Smith Richardson Senior Fellow, Center for Creative Leadership

"With today's ever-increasing complexity in business, organizations need to capitalize on every developmental opportunity. Developing Global Executives will help you do just that by providing a thorough itinerary and useful guide for executives moving in the new, completely global environment. On your exploratory journey through the book, you will meet many fascinating people, learn from their stories, and come away with real wisdom."

-Neil Sendelbach, Adjunct Professor of Business Administration, University of Michigan Business School

I have done a great deal of reading in the area of leadership and this has to be the best thing I have read, to date, on the topic of leadership on a global setting. McCall and Hollenbeck draw some valuable conclusions and make a few statements that any leader in a global setting absolutely needs to know.

Some of the most valuable information on derailment of global executives out there. McCall and Hollenbeck discuss a number of factors that stunt or completely derail the development of budding leaders and then offer some hope on how to avoid some of the pitfalls.

Format: Hardcover
Downside is there is no chapter on Re-patriation, what happens when you come back to your head-quarters or home country.

MUST READ for people planning assignment abroad or aspiring to a global career. Makes go balance between the theory of use of international experience in development and practical what it takes for an individual to succeed with guidance from experienced executives. Also covers potential derailment.

Includes a list of global competencies (characteristics) and making sense of culture.

Should be on any HR curiculum for global HR management !

The book was very informative. It gave a good look of the problems that a global executive may face when dealing with an international business.
