About the Webinar
What does it mean to have a “global mindset”? As we enter a new phase in global relations so the challenges facing the expatriate worker become more complicated in today’s complex and fluid global business environment. This research study explores the concept of Global Mindedness from a cross-cultural coaching perspective and its findings clearly illustrate the illusive nature of global mindedness and also how crucial it is becoming to coaching in a new global paradigm. This session will be of interest to intercultural researchers and to anyone who interacts with globally mobile individuals including cross-cultural coaches, trainers and global relocation professionals.
