Management Tip: The Upwardly Global MBA

I ran across a good article in strategy+business called The Upwardly Global MBA. While the article mostly focuses on how business schools need to change to prepare MBA students for today’s business world, I got some good tips on leadership from the article:

  1. Be a thoughtful, aware, sensitive, flexible, and adaptive manager.
  2. Think, decide, and act efficiently and innovatively.
  3. Good communications skills are always useful.
  4. Understand the global nature of your business.
  5. Contribute to multifunctional teams and work on projects that draw on a range of disciplines.
  6. And their chart of Global Business Capabilities listing 39 capabilities for leaders in the global marketplace is well worth checking out.
