Today's leaders live and work in countries other than their home country, manage multinational teams, and have customers from all over the globe. Anyone who is working either outside their country of origin or with others from outside their country of origin needs to demonstrate an effective blend of global competencies. This is even more critical for leaders and requires blending cultural definitions of leadership with multiple geographic influences. Effective leaders also successfully balance tactical work and strategic work, so that they both produce and lead simultaneously. They understand the need to balance time spent in thinking, doing, and communicating. Successful global leaders lead others by influencing them.
