Critical Lessons on Developing Global Leaders
Joyce Osland, Ph.D.
This session focuses on research findings and practical lessons learned from the Global Leadership Lab (GLLab), which was established in 2008 to identify and test best practices in global leadership development--“crucible” experiences that produce transformational development. The GLLab, which has trained over 1300 participants, combines an assessment center approach with experiential learning designed to accelerate the development of global leadership expertise. Attendees will learn how to design effective training programs and avoid pitfalls.
