Session One: Grapple with Globalization and Win

Today we work in a more global world that is increasingly geographically dispersed. Most organizations have done a good job going virtual to address ‘where’ we learn and cut costs. But, more global also means more diverse. Have we done enough to adapt ‘what’ we learn and ‘how’ we lead in an increasingly global and diverse work world?
