Publisher Comments:

Throughout the world, languages differ, but the business questions are the same. In French and Japanese, Hebrew and English, executives are asking, "How can I survive and thrive in the borderless, global marketplace?" andlt;BRandgt; For answers, the authors of andlt;Iandgt;Global Literaciesandlt;/Iandgt; went straight to the leaders themselves — the CEOs of thousands of corporations around the globe. andlt;BRandgt; Two lessons emerged. First, there are leadership universals that every executive and manager needs to practice in order to be world-class at home and abroad. The second defied conventional wisdom: in the borderless economy, culture doesn't matter andlt;Iandgt;less,andlt;/Iandgt; it matters andlt;Iandgt;more.andlt;/Iandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Around the world, business leaders apply their own experiences — personal, professional, and cultural — to an ever-expanding world of Dutch colleagues, Brazilian suppliers, Taiwanese manufacturers, and Chinese competitors. These leaders are trying to become globally literate...and andlt;Iandgt;Global Literaciesandlt;/Iandgt; is for, and about, them. andlt;BRandgt; No one knows this better than CEOs of successful global companies such as Japan's Canon, Sweden's Ericsson, Taiwan's Acer Computers, the U.K.'s British Telecommunications, and U.S.-based Coca-Cola. andlt;BRandgt; In andlt;Iandgt;Global Literacies,andlt;/Iandgt; a team of researchers led by Robert Rosen, Ph.D., of Healthy Companies International, and Watson Wyatt Worldwide have produced the first model of international business success based on a wide-ranging landmark study of global leaders and their world-class companies. andlt;Iandgt;Global Literaciesandlt;/Iandgt; documents the exclusive results of a worldwide survey of over one thousand senior executives and in-depth interviews with CEOs of seventy-eight companies — companies representing 3.5 million employees in more than 200 countries, and with more than $725 billion in annual sales. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;Bandgt;andlt;Iandgt;Global Literaciesandlt;/Iandgt; offers compelling new insights and business tools:andlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;Bandgt;The Global Leadership Universalsandlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Learn the new literacies of business: andlt;BRandgt; * Personal Literacy — understanding and valuing yourselfandlt;BRandgt; * Social Literacy — engaging and challenging peopleandlt;BRandgt; * Business Literacy — focusing and mobilizing your businessandlt;BRandgt; * Cultural Literacy — valuing and leveraging cultural difference andlt;BRandgt; andlt;Bandgt;The Global Success Quotientandlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Learn which are the most globally active, financially successful companies — and countries — in the world, understand how they got there, and apply those learnings to your own organization. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;Bandgt;The Cultures of Twenty-first-Century Businessandlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Develop ways to andlt;Iandgt;seeandlt;/Iandgt; global challenges and opportunities, andlt;Iandgt;thinkandlt;/Iandgt; with an international mindset, andlt;Iandgt;actandlt;/Iandgt; with fresh global-centric leadership behaviors, and andlt;Iandgt;mobilizeandlt;/Iandgt; world-class companies — whether you're a multinational giant, a domestic manufacturer, or a local community organization. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;Bandgt;National Profilesandlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; With sophisticated profiles of thirty countries, and survey data from eighteen national cultures — from the Tolerant Traders of the Netherlands to China's Ancient Modernizers and the Optimistic Entrepreneurs of the United States, andlt;Iandgt;Global Literaciesandlt;/Iandgt; is a groundbreaking and fascinating work on the most important issues in the world of business today.
