Do You Have a Global Mindset?
Mansour Javidan, Ph.D.
Director, The Garvin Center for
Cultures and Languages
Samuel J. Palmisano, the Chair of the
Board, President, and CEO of IBM:
• “Today’s global corporations are shifting their focus
from products to production-from what things
companies choose to make to how they choose to
make them, from what services they offer to how they
choose to deliver them. Simply put, the emerging
globally integrated enterprise is a company that
fashions its strategy, its management, and its
operations in pursuit of a new goal: the integration of
production and value delivery worldwide. State
borders define less and less the boundaries of
corporate thinking or practice.”
The Globalized World of
Business
• The global corporation is evolving as a
global network of interconnected and
tightly integrated internal and external
activities designed to satisfy their varied
customer markets in different parts of
the world

Global Leadership defined:
• Global leadership is the process of
influencing individuals, groups, and
organizations inside and outside the
boundaries of the global organization,
representing diverse
cultural/political/institutional systems to
contribute towards the achievement of
the organization’s goals.
• Global Mindset is a set of individual
attributes that enable and facilitate global
leadership.
Global MindsetSM
The ability to influence
individuals, groups,
organizations, and
systems that are
unlike the leader’s.
Global Mindset
• “Global mindset to me means that the
individual has a global passport, but in their
head.”
• “It’s the ability to understand the similarities
and differences among cultures and their
reasons.”
Global Mindset
• “understanding and respecting other
cultures rather than judging them.”
• “The ability to avoid the simplicity of
assuming all cultures are the same, and
at the same time, not being paralyzed
by the complexity of the differences.”
Global Mindset
• Someone with a global mindset enters a
new and different situation with many
more questions rather than answers,
assumptions and presumptions.”
• “It’s being able to make sense of
contrasting frames of reference and the
ability to simultaneously see oneself as
American and German.”
Global Mindset
• “I think it’s a natural curiosity to learn
more about other cultures.”
• “Rather than being frustrated and
intimidated by the differences, enjoying
them and seeking them out because
you find them fascinating.”
Global Mindset
• “Being comfortable with being
uncomfortable in uncomfortable
environments.”
• “It’s like a bug. Once you have it, you
can’t get rid of it.”
Global Mindset
• “Eternal Optimism, no fear of failure,
open to taking risks”
• “From a business perspective, the lack
of fear means that when someone
thinks about how to create a new
product, they think of it in much deeper
and broader terms of how it applies to
the global market.”
Global Mindset
• “People with a global mindset have a
sense of adventure. They are attracted
to the unknown.”
• “Can-do attitude. Sky is the limit.”
• “I broke off my engagement to go to
Thunderbird because something in me
was drawing me to explore the world.”

Who needs a global mindset?
But today, companies increasingly
need softer people skills….and
perhaps most important, working
across cultures with Chinese,
Germans, Indians, Italians, Russians,
and a world full of suppliers and
partners.

• “The Jack Welch of the future cannot be
me. I spent my entire career in the
United States. The next head of
General Electric will be somebody who
spent time in Bombay, in Hong Kong, in
Buenos Aires. We have to send our
best and brightest overseas and make
sure they have the training that will
allow them to be the global leaders who
will make GE flourish in the future.”
