The power of global teams
This book is about how to build executive teams that win international clients, turn businesses around and accelerate international growth in a globally competitive market.
Dr Elisabeth Marx, a leadership consultant, is also the author of Breaking through Culture Shock. Here she reveals lessons from top international teams through case studies across a variety of sectors, demonstrating how teams can be developed step-by-step and confronting the key challenges international business leaders face.
It features interviews with influential global leaders from a range of sectors, including: Barclays, Rockefeller Foundation, Citi, Christie’s, Ogilvy & Mather, Virgin Media, Rolls- Royce, Petrofac and Dixons.
The book also looks at team development in the not-for-profit sector and in emerging markets.
It illustrates how international diversity can be channelled into producing superior results. Among her key observations are that effective team leadership is one of the most important differentiators of successful executives and that effective team leadership is something that can be learned and improved upon.
