Abstract

The field of global leadership has flourished and advanced in the preceding decade. However, in contrast to the term global leadership, which enjoys conceptual clarity enabling accumulative progress, the construct of global leadership effectiveness is comparatively undertheorized, with instances of definitional ambiguity and disjointed methodological operationalizations across studies. The purpose of this chapter is, thus, to provide a systematic review of the global leadership effectiveness literature. In doing so, our contributions are fourfold. First, we offer an inclusive, comprehensive definition of global leadership effectiveness. Second, we map its construct domain. Third, we review research findings at the individual, group, and organizational levels. Finally, we integrate extant insights and offer suggestions for future research, organized within the typology of the content domain along the identified dimensions of global leadership effectiveness. Together, our goal is to build a foundation for future research examining the roles of leadership and the global context as antecedents of global leadership effectiveness.

Abstract

In this concluding chapter, the editors reflect on the value-added contributions of the papers in this volume toward a better understanding of global leadership effectiveness. After highlighting some of those contributions, the editors then discuss relevant directions for future research in global leadership effectiveness and organize their discussion around (1) antecedents, (2) conditions, and (3) dimensions of global leadership effectiveness. They conclude by listing some of the paramount research questions they believe should be addressed for the field to move forward in mapping the dimensions and dynamics of global leadership effectiveness.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this study is to unite research in cultural intelligence (CQ), core confidence and multitasking to examine how these characteristics interplay in the perceptions of global leadership effectiveness.

Design/methodology/approach

The sample comprised 149 employees, mostly managers from 21 countries with 18 native languages spoken who had global leadership experience while working fulltime for international organizations. Relationships were examined using the hierarchical linear regression of survey data.

Findings

Support is found for core confidence moderating the relationship between CQ and other-rated and self-rated perceptions of global leadership effectiveness such that the relationship is stronger when leader core confidence is high. Moreover, support is found for CQ and core confidence having positive relationships with self-rated perceptions of global leadership effectiveness, and the study found a positive relationship between CQ and multitasking.

Practical implications

The relationships studied provide practitioners with information to supplement the employee selection process for global leaders. The ability to assess current or future employees and hedge organizational risk in assignment to global leadership positions could have a significant impact.

Originality/value

This study contributes to the literature by investigating individual characteristics contributing to the perceptions of global leadership effectiveness. Because perceptions are often acted on as if reality and globalization in our personal and work lives is expansive, understanding these relationships is important.

Abstract

In this contribution, we systematically review the extant global leadership literature to identify important bibliometric and thematic patterns in evidence in this evolving field of scholarship. Conceptualizing the phenomenon to include leaders/managers/supervisors who hold global, expatriate, or international positions, we draw out insights accumulated from a total of 327 published articles in key management and organizational behavior journals listed in Scopus. Our analysis proceeds in two sequential phases. Our bibliometric analysis first identifies the most cited articles, most published first authors, country bases of first authors, and frequently publishing journals in this field. This characterizes both the diversity and innovative nature of scholarship in the field. Our thematic content analysis, generated through Nvivo 11, isolates two dominant overarching themes that represent the wellspring for the body of literature, namely global leader development and global leader effectiveness. These themes of development and effectiveness are further explicated through six distinct lenses namely cultural, cognitive, learning, personality trait, social/relational, and political. These lenses are underpinned by a suite of theoretical perspectives encompassing individual, system, and contextual considerations. In combination, these sets of analyses bring added systematics to the field and serve as a point of departure for future inquiry.

Abstract

International experience (IE) has been acknowledged to be the most useful method for developing global leaders. However, not everyone benefits equally from IE. During the last two decades, our understanding of why this is the case and how global leaders learn from IE has rapidly increased. Several individual and organizational enablers facilitating global leader learning from IE have been identified in the literature, as have learning mechanisms that make such learning possible. However, the literature remains fragmented, and there is a great need to integrate the findings in the field. Therefore, the present paper systematically examines peer-reviewed studies on global leaders' learning from IE published between 1998 and 2019. The study contributes to the extant literature by identifying and integrating individual enablers, organizational enablers, and key learning mechanisms from global leaders' IE and by suggesting topics for future research.

Abstract

Purpose

Research on expatriation and global leadership has been characterized by wide variations in defining what constitutes intercultural competence. Greater progress can be achieved if a comprehensive definition of the intercultural competence domain can be established, particularly with regard to the specific context of global leadership. This paper aims to focus on the issues.

Design/methodology/approach

The authors conduct an extensive review of the global leadership and expatriation literatures, integrating and synthesizing prior theoretical and empirical efforts to develop a comprehensive domain definition for intercultural competence in the context of global leadership.

Findings

The domain of intercultural competence in the context of global leadership comprised three dimensions – perception management, relationship management and self management. Each dimension is characterized by facets that further delineate aspects of intercultural competence.

Research limitations/implications

The domain definition of intercultural competence for global leadership appears to be well supported in prior theoretical and empirical work focusing on expatriation and global leadership; however that work was fragmented in nature. A test of the comprehensive model, i.e. all three dimensions and 17 facets, is called for, as well as the validation of an instrument that measures them.

Originality/value

The paper integrates and synthesizes the extensive body of theoretical and empirical work related to intercultural competence and clearly establishes the content domain, thereby enhancing the efficacy of future theoretical and empirical efforts.

Abstract

In this concluding chapter, we discuss insights and reflections from our invited contributions on the COVID-19 pandemic and derive areas of meaningful future research to advance the global leadership domain. Specifically, we call for (1) strengthening the link of the global leadership domain with related research fields, (2) expanding our view on what are necessary global leadership competencies, (3) moving beyond individual global leadership toward a more collective and collaborative understanding of the phenomenon, (4) further enhancing the growing field of responsible global leadership, (5) examining the various competing tensions that global leaders need to balance, and (6) engaging in greater reflexivity among global leadership scholars ourselves.

Abstract

Future global leaders need to develop global leadership competencies (GLCs) to tackle the complexities of globalisation, not just to learn about them. While most programmes in university settings focus on study-abroad or out-of-classroom experiences to develop these competencies, it is argued that well-designed on-campus learning methods can develop GLCs successfully. This chapter reports on a course design that effectively develops these competencies in the classroom using team-based learning (TBL) (Michaelsen & Sweet, 2008). The course aims to help students practise three competencies deemed essential for global leaders: (1) the ability to demonstrate self-awareness; (2) the ability to communicate effectively when working in multicultural teams and (3) the ability to think critically. The chapter argues that using TBL to develop GLC is particularly effective, as the instruction method offers a fixed, clearly defined set of practice, i.e. weekly individual and group test, team collaboration and peer feedback that works as a semester-long experiential learning teamwork activity where the students practise, reflect and develop their GLC. The chapter provides an account of the course design, activities and assignments implemented and discusses its effectiveness. It aims to be useful for instructors who want to implement an innovative, student-centred course on global leadership.
