Much of the challenge of developing more and better global leaders has fallen on human resource managers who have largely been oriented to domestic leadership models. This article reviews the latest thinking on global leadership and presents a framework for developing company-specific competency models. By embracing a systematic approach to structuring a global leadership competency model, human resource managers can have a huge impact on the globalization of their companies. The article also suggests where additional research can contribute to the understanding of how cultural leadership differences can best be dismantled as companies move along the path to globalization.
