Management experts Linda D. Sharkey, Nazneen Razi, Robert A. Cooke and Peter Barge acknowledge the common characteristics and competencies of good leaders but argue convincingly that global leaders need additional, unique skills. The authors have sufficient impressive knowledge of global business to write knowingly about global leadership based on their experience alone. Yet this work stands out because they add their analysis of past and new research, including surveys and interviews with some 150 global leaders, and they use that data to test their assumptions.

  • What five “behavioral dimensions” global leaders need and
  • How to use them to identify and develop successful global leaders.
