The book addresses managerial attitudes regarding globalization and international business, often referred to as a global mindset. A global mindset is not enabling managers to be most effective in all situations. Alongside the structure and culture of their working environment, this leads to consequences for both managers and their organization.
Examining the importance of cultural attitudes on human resource practices, this book addresses an important, but often neglected aspect of cross-cultural leadership. First providing an overview of globalization processes and a description of the global mindset concept, the author discusses how the mindset of a manager can influence cross-cultural leadership behavior and behavioral intentions. Global Mindset and Cross-Cultural Behavior: Improving Leadership Effectiveness shows how an intercultural and global approach improves managerial attitudes towards different cultural values, intercultural interactions and motivation. Using a behavioral intentions model to provide a tool for predicting cross-cultural leadership behavior, the author demonstrates how this can be applied to human resource strategy and practice.

A global mindset, often referred to as managerial attitudes regarding globalization and aspects of international business, is recognized as an imperative for effective global leadership. Based on extensive literature research, Global Mindset and Leadership Effectiveness describes three field studies in which global mindset is identified and related to outcomes of effective leadership behaviour. The empirical results reveal that effective leadership behaviour depends on a company's global organizational structure and corporate culture. In companies with a strong focus on their native country, managers with global mindsets are perceived by their superiors as ineffective in contrast to their peers with local mindsets. Therefore, a global mindset as such is not enabling managers to be as effective due to the organizational setting in which these managers are working. Based on the empirical results, this book describes the consequences of the relationship between global mindset and leadership effectiveness for organizations and individuals in terms of 'mindset – organization fit', stages in mindset development, and a 'global career paradox'.
“Think globally, act locally” is a phrase many of us grew up hearing. What we weren’t told, however, is how hard it is to accomplish. This work mines the well-researched field of global mindset by exploring the ways global knowledge allows organizations of any size or tenure to become more effective on the global scene. It draws on a case study of an international religious community to show how global partnerships can be improved and how organizational members can grow professionally and personally from a global mindset—even if they never step foot on a plane.
