In today’s world, organizing our work globally is considered an ordinary part of our working life, yet we often find ourselves in situations that are not ordinary – situations where we are inclined to make decisions based on a limiting mindset. We casually cross borders almost without noticing them and unconsciously minimize the differences between one country and the next.
To have a true global mindset is to have a high degree of global awareness and global experience, which enables us to connect the dots and create the bigger picture.
To develop a true global mindset is to develop increased self-awareness and understanding of how different people with different assumptions and behavioral norms perceive us in different contexts – and vice-versa.
With a true global mindset we can anticipate uncertainty and organize so that we are capable of performing in a state of continuous change.
With a true global mindset we pay attention to the wide range of demands and opportunities – and we pay attention to the capabilities that different parts of our organization possess.
The overall intention of a true global mindset is the ability to exploit the full potential of integrated worldwide operations!
