Questions—and answers—about the Omicron variant's impact on organizations. Plus, critical year-end moves to boost your career.
There is a small cadre of best-in-class foreign talent at the senior levels of top Asian corporate success stories like Samsung, LG, SK, Huawei, Haier and Lenovo, among others, helping to "globalize" key elements of the business. Reporting to the CEOs, these executives, by and large, don’t speak the local language and many have never worked in Korea or China. But their impact has been felt throughout the global enterprise and most of these Asian conglomerates expect to hire more foreign talent as CEOs recognize the importance of building global capabilities, beginning with the head office.
Lessons from the Asian C-Suite: Building Global Talent and a Culture for Success delves into the "success profile" and the ideal leadership competencies of successful foreign executives who operate at the C-level in Asian multinationals. Based on a survey conducted earlier this year, the goal of this analysis is to enable companies to make more informed hiring decisions, ensure the success of these globalization initiatives, and help create an environment for the executives to achieve their personal and professional goals.
