When: Wednesday 25 May 2011

Where:  Centre Patronal, Paudex, VD

Entry free of charge

Lake Geneva is a global region with nearly half of its population made up of foreigners, representing some 180 nationalities and a host of NGOs, UN organizations and multinational corporations. Not surprisingly Lake Geneva region is home to a large number of Global Nomads.

An efficient nomadic leader should be at home on every continent with highly developed intercultural sensitivity. These highly mobile leaders meet the needs of the hyper-globalized economy and have what every multinational company seeks : innate intercultural instincts, mobility and adaptability. Yesterday, the top manager was the one who travelled. Today, with hyper-globalization, even the local manager needs the skills of a global leader.

These  global nomads present a challenge to HR managers and coaches. How do we support them in the workplace to leverage their unique skills and help them feel grounded and fulfilled? Equally important is supporting their family’s integration.

What is the difference between a Global Nomadic Leader and an expatriate? How to recruit and retain Global Nomads? How can we help his insertion and the one of his entourage? Is it necessary to integrate them in a purely multicultural environment ? What projects should be assigned to them? How is globalization impacting leadership ?
