Why Leadership Is The Next Global Frontier

WomenWithAVisionWEGG2009

You have a business but do you have and are you communicating a vision about taking it global?  According to Herminia Ibarra, professor of organizational behavior at INSEAD who conducted a recent groundbreaking study of executive leadership and gender:

Vision is generally believed to be the most critical leadership component and perhaps the main factor separating manager from leader. No matter what other qualities an executive candidate possesses, a perceived lack of vision may prevent advancement to that top role.

Study results–based on the responses of nearly 3,000 male and female executives plus 22,000 of their supervisors, peers and subordinates–ranked women highest in almost every category of leadership except the most crucial one: having and communicating a vision.

Stop what you are doing right now.

Establish a global vision, write it down on a rock, and start talking it up with your employees, independent contractors, vendors, colleagues, friends and family!  Because leadership — the ability to have and communicate a vision — is the next global frontier for women business owners worldwide.
