Developing a Truly Global Leadership Team
As China continues to transition into a more mature economy, characterised by a more complex, ambitious and volatile business environment, having the right leaders with the right capabilities has become far more important for business success. Over the last five years many foreign businesses with operations in China have transitioned key leadership roles originally held by expats to Chinese managers and leaders. Both multinationals and SMEs in China are and will continue to rely more heavily on Chinese leaders to drive the success of their China operations. - In what ways are Chinese leaders and European leaders similar and different in their approaches to leadership? - What distinguishes highly effective Chinese middle management from highly effective Chinese senior management? - What behaviours can Chinese leaders employ to help them have a greater impact? - What do we know about perceptions of Chinese leaders that may limit their opportunities to reach their full potential? And, what can we do about these perceptions? http://www.eusmecentre.org.cn/event/2014-06-11/developing-truly-global-leadership-team-leveraging-similarities-and-differences-chi

Strategy Development Simplified: What Is Strategy & How To Develop One?  ✓
✅Join me and 5,000 others at LIG so I can show you how you can transform your career. Registrations are now open again; https://goo.gl/chwjpr Watch next: One Simple Talk That May Change Your Career and Life: https://youtu.be/R-PAfs_4un8 In this month's episode, I teach you various layers of strategy and how to use strategy tools. What I’d like to do in about 45 minutes to an hour is to give you a sense of what strategy is, what tools we use to develop strategy, and then teach you how to apply these corporate level tools to our day to day lives through developing strategic thinking abilities. So if you take this mini-course, by the end of it, you’ll very clearly learn what strategy is and its various levels such corporate strategy, business strategy, and functional strategies. You will no longer confuse it with tasks or goals, then you will learn about Strategy Canvas with value curves. It’s a tool that will help you see the bigger picture, help you with the positioning of your offerings and hence develop strategies to become… unique. And while I am teaching you these, I’ll run so many case studies to make it crystal clear for you. Then finally, the second half of the video will be the most useful part to you. Because in reality, you are probably not the strategy manager or the CEO of a large multinational company, you are probably not Coca Cola’s Chairman, so what I did at the 2nd half of the video is to customize strategy development so it can be applicable to your day to day lives. You will learn how to develop a strategic thinking that will apply to your work, apply to your family life, your school, in simple terms; your life. You’ll be a smarter person, because you’ll be more strategic in your thinking, you’ll have more success because you’ll be able to identify more opportunities, you’ll fail less because you’ll be able to identify risks even before they become apparent. And I’ll try my best to do the impossible and cover everything under 1 hour and make it super easy to understand. I’ll try but let’s see if I’ll succeed. So, what is strategy; Strategy is a word that gets used a lot and often in a wrong context. Most people confuse it with goals. Essentially, strategy is a roadmap to how we are going to win. Where you are is your “as-is” state, and where you want to go is your “to-be” state. How you are going to bridge that gap is your strategy. So, if I was to teach strategy to my children I’d say, you wanna reach the finish line first. You may walk straight to the finish line at 5 kms per hour, Or you may extend your route, take more time as you have to travel more distance, but collect the speed boost on the way so you go faster at the end at around 20 km per hour. Collecting that speed boost to win would be your strategy. now let’s get back to the adult world, in business, we have 3 major layers of strategy; We have Corporate Strategy We have Business Strategy And we have Functional strategy So, let’s start with corporate strategy;

Impact of Culture on Business Performance
Company culture has a profound effect on business performance. This video explores the impact that different cultures may have on Small and Medium Businesses. "http://www.niallstrickland.com" "http://www.howsmybusinessdoing.com" "http://www.growthoracle.com" Many people think that company culture only exists in larger businesses. Nothing could be further from the truth. What are the implications of company culture on business performance in smaller businesses? Regular readers of my articles will already know that I work predominantly with small and medium businesses. In my experience, company culture is just as important in smaller companies as it is in much larger businesses. So what is company culture? It is largely the ethos of the business. It reflects the norms of behavior displayed by the vast majority of employees. It can often be seen in the informal grapevine that exists in most businesses. A positive culture will see the grapevine mirroring what goes on in the regular communication channels in the business. A negative culture will often see positive communication in formal channels and negative back-biting in the grapevine. Business culture is something that emulates the style of leadership in the business. If the business owners manage their staff by Do-As-I-Say rather than Do-As-I-Do, then the culture can be negative. This negative culture has a profound impact on productivity. Subordinates question why they should follow an instruction from their manager and frequently deliberately frustrate what they have been asked to do. Similarly, if subordinates notice that their boss starts lots of things but finishes very little, then they will feel entitled to perform in the same way. This is very costly for the business. Uneven treatment of employees can also be a source of negativity that spills over into the business culture. You cannot allow one employee to perform below par and get the same rewards as another employee who performs superbly well. You cannot be critical of one employee because you do not particularly like them and ignore similar behavior in another employee because you prefer them. If the leadership is visionary and open to ideas from all levels of the organization then this creates organizational excitement. Communication is better. Subordinates emulate the high performance and positive outlook of their bosses. Employees tend to be mutually supporting in this environment and team work is at the heart of the business. Productivity is extremely high. Reward structures are fair and reward those that make the extra effort both internally in the business as well as in their customer interactions. So can company culture be changed? Yes, but it takes time and commitment. Those opposed to cultural change and mutually supporting teamwork may need to be fired. It starts at the top of the organization. However, a leopard may not be able to change its spots. It may require a new CEO with a more open management style and a commitment to high performance. Any focused and prosperous business needs to have a leader at the top as opposed to a manager.

Client Insights: Why Kimball International Chose ADP for Human Capital Management
Kimball International is a global office furniture and electronics manufacturer employing 6,400 employees worldwide. Kathy Herndon, Director of HRIS, shares her perspective as an ADP client on Kimball's Human Capital Management challenges. Prior to Kimball's relationship with ADP, a variety of solutions or methods for Human Resources, Payroll, Benefits and Employee and Manager Self-Service were being utilized, none of which were automated or integrated. This created a disjointed, inefficient environment for Kimball, especially for the Human Resources department. Human Resources was unfortunately mired in transactional processing versus being able to focus on strategic initiatives to help drive the business. Beginning with the change management process with implementation, Kathy discusses that with ADP, Kimball has found a partner that truly understood their issues, their values and supported them through the change to form an effective partnership. Kathy further describes how ADP's relationship manager along with ADP's Strategic Advisory Services group challenged traditional ways of thinking to help Kimball think outside the box and automate processes that result in improvements in operational efficiencies and effectiveness for the organization.

The Importance of Thinking and Acting Globally | Iris Stoner | TEDxUCCI
This talk focuses on the importance of thinking and acting globally. The speaker's journey to this conclusion began with a leap of faith and across the world to work in Beijing, China in 1981. That one decision set her on a totally unexpected course, which led her to living, working and raising a family in Hong Kong, where she lived for 20 years. Through personal anecdotes and the effect of growing up abroad on her three children, her message conveys the need to look outward and embrace the idea that we are all part of a global family. Iris Stoner was born in New York, earned a BS from Cornell University and an MA in journalism from the University of Missouri, after which she moved to Beijing where she worked for the New China News Agency (Xinhua). Following that, she and her husband, Tad, (they married in Beijing) moved to Hong Kong, where they lived for 20 years, working in various journalism-related jobs and raising three children, who experienced a truly global upbringing highlighted by going to a school attended by children representing more than 100 nationalities. The family moved to Cayman in 2005 to work at the Cayman Compass. Iris has also worked at the Cayman Observer; the Cayman Net News; The Write Stuff, a small news and feature service; and now the Cayman News Service.

Plans for a Franco-German combat aircraft are set to kick off in earnest at the Berlin Air Show later this month, officials told French media on the sidelines of a meeting of the two countries’ defence ministers in Paris on Thursday. The idea of a joint “systèmedecombat aérien dufutur,” or SCAF, came out of a bilateral Cabinet decision last summer, part of a larger effort to promote the Berlin-Paris relationship in a militarily stronger Europe. The aircraft program would initially be led by Germany and France, and later opened to other European states. As envisioned, the planes would take to the skies by 2040, replacing the fleets of Dassault Rafale and Eurofighter Typhoon jets in both air forces. The project is seen as a key indicator for how – and if – Europeans can manage a truly large-scale project, especially given industry rivalries that lie beneath the often lofty diplomatic language. French minister Florence Parly told the La Tribune newspaper that discussions were “active” between the two countries toward a first step in an eventual program. The goal at this point, she said, is to bring together activities on the political and industrial level. Airbus, Dassault, Thales, MBDA and Safran are among the companies to be involved. French officials look to sign with Germany what Reuters reported would to be a 10-page common requirements document at the ILA Berlin Air Show, which runs from April 25 to April 29. Companies would then spend almost a year separately working on technical specifications before negotiating a cooperation contract, Reuters reported. According to Parly, additional countries would be invited later. Her primary concern at this point, she told La Tribune, was to solidify the French-German “base” before opening the project for wider participation. France also has a future aircraft program going with the United Kingdom. That program would continue in parallel, Parly said. Both programs would be “extremely useful” on the way to the “aviation of the future,” she said. The Berlin Air Show is slated to feature a host of global defence policymakers and aviation industry leaders. Besides the SCAF announcement, companies are expected to use the show to jockey for position in a number of European procurement, including a planned multinational “Eurodrone” and, in Germany, a new heavy transport helicopter and air-defence system.

Addressing global data residency needs with Multi-Geo in Office 365 - BRK3376
Increasingly, governments around the world are enacting laws that mandate data residency for cloud data. Multinational companies are often challenged with navigating a labyrinth of complex requirements making it difficult for them to transform with the cloud. Multi-Geo in Office 365 addresses these concerns and makes it easy for multinationals to meet their global compliance needs and transform with the cloud. Multi-Geo was launched in Exchange Online and OneDrive earlier this year. In early 2019, Multi-Geo will be rolled out for SharePoint Online and Office 365 Groups.

Sylvia Ann Hewlett: "Executive Presence" | Talks at Google
Do you exude confidence and credibility? Can you command a room? Sylvia Ann Hewlett, one of the world's most influential business thinkers, cracks the code of Executive Presence (EP). You might have the qualifications to be considered for your dream job, but you won't get it unless you can signal that you're "leadership material" and that you "have what it takes." Professionals are judged on presence as well as performance. Using a wealth of data, Hewlett reveals EP to be a dynamic mix of three things: how you act (gravitas), how you speak (communication) and how you look (appearance). Sylvia Ann Hewlett is the founding president of the Center for Talent Innovation, a Manhattan-based think tank where she chairs a Task Force of 82 multinational companies focused on fully realizing the new streams of labor in the global marketplace.

Eugenics, A Branch Of Resource Management -- You're The Resources.
The banker boys who run the world see you all as mere human resources, to be optimized and made efficient. In the new "global economy", everything is run on multinational cartels and monopolies, owned by the same handful of shareholders. So, competition is slowly going out the window -- the new rules are 'global cooperation' and 'harmonization'. In the global economy, production and distribution is 'optimized', meaning it's centralized in a few hubs. As such, human resources are also optimized. On the one hand, there will no longer be the necessity for as many of them (us) as before -- so, a big part of the current population is to be downsized, under various measures and pretexts. On the other hand, the few that will be needed will have to be highly specialized and technologically enhanced (through transhumanism and eugenics) whenever possible. This is something that is openly debated in world meetings. It's openly debated in academia articles and papers. It's openly debated in mid-level sociology and management classes. It's only us, the so-called dumb sheeple at the bottom that are kept imagining that the future is all-inclusive and good, and free for all. We're given lots and lots of entertainment, lots and lots of trivia, to calm our otherwise busy minds with. To be sedated. While 'experts' working for the big bosses direct society into the big bosses' future. You truly have to study reality and get informed. And then, start spreading the word. Godspeed you all.

Reliance Communications & Global Cloud Xchange

Deliver First “Make in India” Content Delivery Netwo
Reliance Communications & Global Cloud Xchange Deliver First “Make in India” Content Delivery Network Fast Edge from Reliance / GCX puts content closer to India’s 350 million+ eyeballs than any other content delivery platform with most cost-efficient access available in the market Bengaluru, August 23, 2016 – Reliance Communications (RCOM) and its subsidiary Global Cloud Xchange (GCX) today announced the deployment of Fast Edge, the country’s first “Make in India” Content Delivery Network (CDN), designed to take “Digital India” from promise to fruition. “India’s Internet User growth is accelerating at more than 40% year over year and India has surpassed the USA to become the #2 Global User Market behind China,” according to the Global Internet Trend 2016 report by Mary Meeker, KPCM. With the increasing number of OTT, Gaming and New Media companies targeting India’s 350 million+ eyeballs, the demand for improved response time; reduced risk of malicious attacks; improved visibility of control over traffic flows; and reduced risk of network capacity bottlenecks are rapidly growing. These requirements are posing challenges, especially for third party CDN providers with only infrastructure at regional hubs, far from where growth is exploding. “Fast Edge comprises a Content Delivery Network of content caches around the edge of Reliance’s Indian network, connecting back to 9 state-of-the-art Tier III+ data centers in Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad,” said Bill Barney, CEO of RCOM Enterprise & GCX. “The content caches, in turn, are seamlessly connected onward to our network of data centers situated in key hubs along the Emerging Markets Corridor, all interconnected by our wholly owned global subsea fiber network.” Open-source cache servers hosted in Reliance / GCX MPLS PoPs throughout India mean content of all types including social media, data, video and gaming, can now be served from the very same neighborhood in which the eyeballs accessing it are based. “By building Fast Edge across the length and breadth of the Reliance network, the distance for content to travel to the eyeball can be slashed from 5,000 miles to 10 miles, effectively eradicating the middle mile bottleneck,” said Braham Singh, SVP of Product Management, RCOM Enterprise and GCX. “and because the content is cached and delivered across our local network, any rapid exponential growth in the number of users concurrently accessing will not automatically lead to middle mile bandwidth issues. In other words, content can now go “viral” across India without impact on users.” Fast Edge with Dynamic DNS (DDNS) also offers built-in protection and security in addition to maximizing the speed of content delivery. With Reliance’s Direct Internet Access (DIA) providing downstream access to 100% of India’s Internet users, Fast Edge is designed to optimize Content Delivery across India –a step forward in making Digital India a reality. About Reliance Communications and Global Cloud Xchange Reliance Communications Limited, founded by the late Shri Dhirubhai H Ambani (1932-2002), is the flagship company of the Reliance Group. Reliance Communications is India's foremost and truly integrated telecommunications service provider, with a customer base of above 118 million including over 2.6 million individual overseas retail customers. Reliance Communications corporate clientele includes over 39,000 Indian and multinational corporations including small and medium enterprises and over 290 global, regional and domestic carriers. Its subsidiary Global Cloud Xchange (GCX) offers a comprehensive portfolio of solutions customized for carriers, enterprises and new media companies across the world’s largest private undersea cable system spanning more than 67,000 route kms which, seamlessly integrated with Reliance Communications’ 200,000 route kms of domestic optic fiber backbone and significant data center footprint across India. With connections to 40 key business markets worldwide spanning Asia, North America, Europe and the Middle East, GCX is equipped to support businesses through the deployment of next generation Enterprise solutions across its Cloud Delivery Networks. www.globalcloudxchange.com www.thrillingnewsindia.com

Bakkt Explained - How important is it? Could it create another bull market?
Bakkt Explained - How important is it? Could it create another bull market? Intercontinental Exchange explained Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) is an American company that owns exchanges for financial and commodity markets, and operates 23 regulated exchanges and marketplaces. This includes ICE futures exchanges in the United States, Canada and Europe, the Liffe futures exchanges in Europe, the New York Stock Exchange equity options exchanges and OTC energy, credit and equity markets. In 2017 ICE had revenue of US$ 5.83 billion with total assets worth US$ 78.26 billion. They currently have just under 5000 employees The most famous subsidiary of ICE is the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). It is by far the world's largest stock exchange by market capitalization of its listed companies at US$21.3 trillion in 2017. The average daily trading value was approximately US$169 billion in 2013 and is probably more now. Bakkt Basics In August 2018 Intercontinental Exchange announced that it planned to form a new company, Bakkt, which is intended to leverage Microsoft cloud solutions to create an open and regulated, global ecosystem for digital assets. The new company will work with a marquee group of organizations including Boston Consulting Group (BCG), Microsoft, Starbucks, and others, to create an integrated platform that enables consumers and institutions to buy, sell, store and spend digital assets on a seamless global network. The Bakkt ecosystem is expected to include federally regulated markets and warehousing along with merchant and consumer applications. The first use cases will be for trading and conversion of Bitcoin versus fiat currencies since Bitcoin is the most popular cryptocurrency. Good for investors and demand Bakkt’s platform enables institutional investors to buy Bitcoin via a regulated market infrastructure. Every ETF, money manager or financial institution needs to invest in Bitcoin safely and regulated market infrastructure offers that unlike most normal exchanges. Bitcoins will be physically-backed which is different than futures since those don't have physical backing. This means that if people buy Bitcoin futures it’s just the equivalent of the BTC value in fiat. With Bakkt the Bitcoin futures contract will be physically delivered versus fiat currencies, including USD, GBP and EUR. This means increased demand meaning when institutions begin investing Bitcoin with Bakkt, the actual Bitcoin is removed from the market. As a result it should driving price higher as supply diminishes and contributing to the overall market cap. Real life usage The investing is just a one aspect of the Bakkt. On top of that they are building a platform to enable consumers and institutions to buy, sell, store and spend digital assets seamlessly. Real life usage is the biggest issue that cryptocurrencies are currently very difficult to use and spend in real life. It is also very difficult for an average user to get into cryptocurriences - buying first cryptocurrency and then storing them is not that easy for an average user. If Bakkt is able to create a global network where users can easily buy, store and spend cryptocurrency it would increase the value of all cryptocurrencies tremendously since new users could purchase it and old users could use it. To achieve that Bakkt would need partnerships however. Partnerships To achieve that goal Bakkt managed to secure some significant partnerships: Starbucks which is an American coffee company and coffeehouse chain with revenue of US $22.387 billion and over 238k employees. They are one of the leaders in mobile retail transactions. They have gift cards and mobile app payments - cryptocurrencies seems to be perfect use cases. Microsoft is providing services for the system so it is unclear how much they will use the system but I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to be involved more. The other partnership is BCG - Boston Consulting Group is a American multinational management consulting firm with 90 offices in 50 countries with Revenue of $6.3 billion and around 16k employees. Huge partnership but unclear how far it goes. Conclusion In my opinion Bakkt news is bigger than any Futures because: it actually uses cryptocurrencies it builds real life usage for cryptocurrencies In the recent post Bakkt said that they will focus on three aspects New products on existing infrastructure to provide physically delivered Bitcoin futures contracts versus fiat currencies, including USD, GBP and EUR. New security standards New access to markets and information We need to keep in mind that Bakkt is a project by Intercontinental Exchange who are also leading the biggest stock exchange in the world. That means they do have experience and knowledge needed to pull this off. This is potentially one of the biggest news in the cryptocurrency world in years since it opens a lot of potential for trading but also trading.

Innovation Challenge Design and Management for the Crowd
This Roundtable Discussion hosted by IdeaScale and IM Channel One explores the leading benefits, challenges and techniques for engaging public crowds. Truly reaching out to the public can prove an intimidating moment for any organization. Brand protection, possibility of negative press and time commitment of managing the crowd all provide significant points of fear for organization when contemplating undertaking a broad, public crowdsourcing project. These projects differ significantly from employee or partner-focused initiatives in the extent to which these fears can outweigh the perceived benefits. Presenters Lindsay Rentz and James Baillie from IdeaBuzz, talk through the process of alleviating these fears, while also expanding how participants can generate the best possible outcomes for their organizations. The success-stories are there; from the Department of Energy’s revolutionary new Sunshot Catalyst program to Procter & Gamble’s Connect + Develop and smaller organizations such as Magneti Marelli’s global Laptime Club, it is clear that getting confident and competent at large-scale public crowdsourcing can add immense value.
James Quigley in conversation with Julia Kirby

He is U.S. co-chairman of the Trans Atlantic Business Dialogue, and a member of the board of trustees of the U.S. Council for International Business and the German Marshall Fund of the United States. He is also a member of the Council on Competitiveness and the Shanghai International Financial Advisory Council. He has also served on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Advisory Committee on Improvements to Financial Reporting.

He is involved in various business and community groups in the United States, including Japan Society and The Economic Club of New York. His memberships include the Business Roundtable and the National Advisory Committee–Brigham Young University. As One The world is as much about cooperation as it is about conflict; as much about collaboration as competition. Yet our knowledge of collective behavior is still relatively slim. Leaders who have been trained in the command-and-control mode of management are realizing that it often fails to truly engage people; in response, management thinkers have proclaimed the advent of a new, participatory model. But why should there be only two modes of collective behavior? For the past two years Deloitte has invested in a major global initiative, the As One project, to study effective collaborations. The project has discovered that there are many modes of 'As One behavior' and that all are effective in certain contexts. "As One" defines eight archetypes of leaders and followers. Taking more than 60 cases of successful collective behavior, the authors define the characteristics for each model and show how you can apply them to your organization. "As One" will show you a new way to lead, and to get your team working to reach all your goals. Imagine what we could accomplish if we could unlock the power of "As One" on a global scale.

Acritas Global Elite Law Firm Brand Index 2018
This is the ninth annual global law firm brand Index we have published Find out more: https://www.acritas.com/global-elite-law-firm-brand-index-2018 The key findings show that law firms who are adapting to the new world are gaining ground. Central to this year’s results are five key themes: [00:23] Being recognised for innovation brings reward Leading brand, Baker McKenzie, and the fastest rising brand, Eversheds Sutherland, are most recognised this year in our global research for their innovation efforts. And this is having a positive effect to these firm’s brands. Allen & Overy, third most recognised for innovation, has also moved up the index. [00:50] And it’s not just brand that innovation impacts. Clients, who recognize a firm as innovative, on average, award double the Net Promoter Score and take a two thirds higher share of spend. But remember, innovating on its own is not enough, firms need to communicate their new offerings to their clients to get the recognition they deserve. [01:12] For global brands, global coverage counts. In 2018, even more of our leading brands are picking up brand equity in all regions of the world. This brings me on to our second and third themes. [01:28] Credible coverage across Mainland Europe As multinational clients prepare for Brexit, they are increasingly turning to firms who have credible coverage across Mainland Europe. Along with the brand leader, Clifford Chance and Linklaters, have moved up the ranks this year and they are all strong, established brands in Mainland Europe. [01:50] Transatlantic presence to align with clients' growing global needs When we look at both the newcomers to the Index and those who have risen significantly up the ranks, since we first published the Index nine years ago, there has almost always been a transatlantic merger involved. Norton Rose Fulbright, Dentons and Eversheds Sutherland being prime examples. Beyond the top 20, we see Squire Patton Boggs moving towards our prestigious ranking of global brands. [02:15] Taking a step back and reviewing our top 20 and beyond, there are many firms who don’t have a strong brand in the US and similarly those which are very US centric. As we look forward we have to predict some more transatlantic mergers on the horizon to create truly global firms in more of the markets clients are telling us they have a need. [02:37] Authentic industry focus counts, particularly when it interplays with specialized legal expertise This year’s newcomer to the index, Bird & Bird, benefits from its focus on technology which is now disrupting all of the traditional sectors. Similarly, Latham & Watkins, with its finance strength, has moved up to its higher ever rank at 11th. [02:57] M&A drives growth and brings boardroom credibility M&A is often driving the growth for clients who are increasing their spend. This means firms that are strongly considered for multi-jurisdictional M&A are rising up our index, Linklaters being a prime example. Firms like Sullivan & Cromwell and Wachtell Lipton, albeit largely US brands, have come close to the top 20 this year because of their increasing consideration on this factor. [03:30] During 2018, many firms are working harder at developing and implementing strategies that deliver competitive advantage. Although this is great for clients, who have reported increasing levels of satisfaction in our research, it makes the job for leadership even harder to make real headway. There has never been a more important time for firms to be data-driven in setting and gaining support for strategy, focusing on investments that will deliver return and reduce expensive periods of indecision and debate. [04:05] Congratulations to all the firms making this year’s Global Brand Index.
